I am thrilled to be joining the Lovettsville staff this upcoming school year as a Full Day Kindergarten teacher! For the past 4 years, I have been teaching First Grade at Frances Hazel Reid in Leesburg. Prior to teaching in Leesburg, I worked as a TA and one-on-one aide in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade in Ridgewood, New Jersey. I have been working with children for more than half of my life, starting work at day camps, day cares, and pre-schools at the age of 14-working with children brings me so much happiness! I am a New York native, having grown up in Astoria, Queens and later Rockland County. I graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am so excited to be the first teacher our Kindergarten students will have beginning their career at Lovettsville Elementary! I can't wait to instill a love of learning and foster children's innate curiosity of the world around them, while establishing a strong knowledge base to set them up for future successes!
When I'm not teaching, you can find me at home in Brunswick Crossing. I love to bake, attend concerts, read, spend time with my husband, and work on our new hobby-wood crafts!
I look forward to a wonderful year ahead in Kindergarten and cannot wait to meet all of my new students!

I received my Bachelor’s degree in nursing from Carlow University. I received my Master’s in Elementary Education and Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership degree from Regent University. I am a lifelong learner and hope to share my love of learning with my students.
I am a native of New Jersey, but have spent most of my adult life in Virginia. Four years ago my husband and three children moved to Lovettsville. I love Lovettsville and hope to be here for a long time.
I can’t wait to meet my new students and parents!
Mrs. Stevens is really excited to be one of the fifth grade
teachers at Lovettsville Elementary. She is excited to get back into the
classroom and looks forward to this great opportunity. She has worked in
education for thirteen years. Most
recently she was at Rock Ridge High School as the Library Media Specialists and
Rosa Lee Carter as a fourth grade teacher. Previously she taught fourth grade
and kindergarten in Richmond before returning to Loudoun County. She
graduated from Potomac Falls High School so she is a product of Loudoun
County Public Schools. After high school
she attended Longwood University where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in

Her main love outside of school is reading; you will always find her in the middle of one book if not two or three. Her other loves are photography and watching movies with her family and friends. She strives to make learning a great experience for all of her students and hopes they come away from her classroom with a head full of knowledge and a heart filled with excitement.
