Miss Sherline

HELLO and welcome to Kindergarten at Waterford ES!  My name is Karen Sherline. 


Work Bio

I am a Kindergarten Teacher Assistant and will be working with Kristin Shannon in Room 2.  This will be my 22nd year with Loudoun County Public Schools.  I was a First grade teacher for 13 years and have been a Kindergarten teacher assistant for 8.  I consider it a great privilege to be a part of a young child’s early foundational years. I am a life-long learner and look forward to helping your child learn to love school.


Personal Bio

I grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh (go Steelers!).  I graduated Miami University of Ohio with degrees in Economics, International Studies, and German.  I stumbled into my love of teaching by way of volunteering in my daughter’s kindergarten class.  I returned to school for my teaching license and thus began my career in education.  I live in Ashburn, VA with my 7-year-old collie/shepherd mix, Clara.  My daughter lives in Winchester with my granddaughter, a rising 2nd grader, and my brand new grandson.


I am very excited to be returning to Waterford.  I look forward to working with your child. Here’s to a great year in Kindergarten!
