Hi! I’m Whitney Arietta and I'm beyond excited to be joining the 2nd grade team at Horizon this year! Last year, I had the privilege of teaching English in Taiwan with the Fulbright program. In Taiwan, I taught grades 1-6 in a public school in Taipei. This amazing and rewarding experience has allowed me to empathize with English Learners and have a better understanding of their needs in the classroom.
Growing up, I frequently moved within the U.S. and spent 2 years living in Germany. My family and I have lived in Ashburn for the past 10 years and I couldn’t be happier to return to LCPS as a teacher! I graduated in 2022 with my Master’s in Teaching from James Madison University. Go Dukes!
Outside of the classroom, I love spending time with friends and family and traveling the world!
I can’t wait to meet all my students and their families!
