Hello! My name is Molly Hood. I have been a classroom teacher for 8 years and I am very excited to be starting my new role as a Reading Specialist at Newton-Lee! I am a Loudoun County native and I graduated from Briar Woods High School. I graduated from Longwood University's Reading, Literacy, and Learning Graduate Program. I also attended Longwood in my undergrad where I earned my degree and teaching PK-6 license. I have become endorsed in ESOL as well. I am passionate about supporting students in their literacy growth and extremely excited to join the NLE team! In my free time I love to garden and cook. My husband Nate and I live in Waterford with our 1 year old daughter Sage. We love spending time with our friends and host bonfires and cookouts often. The Outerbanks is my favorite place on Earth!

I'm originally from Pennsylvania and received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh. I also have a Master of Education degree from Carlow University and a reading endorsement from George Mason University.
When I'm not teaching, I'm usually reading or practicing yoga. I recently earned my yoga teaching certification!
