Mrs. Teets

Hi! Welcome to the best team ever - Team Teets! My name is Mrs. Teets and I am excited for this upcoming school year at Discovery Elementary! I am THRILLED to be your teacher!  It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures.  I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about myself.  


I was born right here in Loudoun County and am a proud graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools! My husband and I are high school sweethearts. We live in Brambleton with our adorable four-year old dog, Ellie. We love traveling, whether it is to Florida to visit our siblings, or to our family’s river house here in Virginia. Check it out - even Ellie loves the river house!

I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees both from James Madison University - GO DUKES! I earned a Master of Arts in Education in 2015 from JMU. 


This will be my 9th year teaching. I have spent all 9 years right here at Discovery. I taught third grade for five years and this will be my fourth year teaching first grade. I adore first graders because they love to learn, make friends, and work hard.


 I am excited to be your teacher and for you to be part of this AWESOME team. I look forward to working with you to create a safe and comfortable learning environment for you and your classmates. This is going to be a fantastic year!
