    Mrs. Jeffries

    Ms. Jeffries went to Virginia Tech where she earned a degree in Biology.  This led to a career in cancer research.  As a scientist, it is a natural fit that Mrs. Jeffries has taken on the challenge of leading our Sterling EDGE program to help students develop skills for inquiry based learning!

    Mrs. Jeffries and her family have lived in Sterling since 1989.  Mrs. Jeffries' relationship with Sterling Elementary began in the fall of 2001 when her son started here as a third grader.  After seven years of working as a substitute teacher, she became the library assistant in 2010.
