The Reading Team
Hi, my name is Christy Banks. I am thrilled to be a reading specialist here at Liberty Elementary! This is a wonderful school community, and I consider myself lucky to be a part of it. This year marks my 25th year as a teacher. I taught first grade here at Liberty for five years before transitioning into the role of reading specialist. Prior to my time in Loudoun County, I taught in Bedford County, VA. I attended Radford University where I received my bachelor's degree. In 2010, I graduated from the University of Virginia with my master's degree in literacy. My husband and I are the proud parents of four amazing kids. Our oldest son is a college sophomore, our daughter is a high school senior, we have a son entering high school as a freshman, and our youngest son is in 8th grade. We have a German shepherd named Belle, along with a shih tzu named Molly. Our household is a busy one, but we wouldn't have it any other way!
Hello Liberty Eagles! My name is Hannah Noone and I am so excited to be entering my 11th year teaching here at Liberty. I have taught 1st grade, 3rd grade, and I am so happy to now be a part of the reading team. I graduated from Shepherd University with a B.A. in Elementary Education and I completed my Masters Degree in Literacy Leadership from George Mason University in 2017. I live in Leesburg,VA with my wonderful husband, Shiloh, our son, Connor, and our cat, Penny. I grew up in Leesburg and I have loved being able to teach in the same county where I attended school. In my spare time, I love to read, travel to new places, and spend time with family and friends. I can't wait to work with so many amazing Liberty Eagles this year!
My name is Christine Johnson, and I am excited to begin my 4th year as the PALS tutor at Liberty Elementary! Before teaching at Liberty, I taught first and second grades in Fairfax County for 10 years and was a teacher and curriculum developer at a homeschool co-op for 3 years. I graduated from George Mason University with a bachelor's in psychology and a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. I live in Loudoun County with my husband, Paul, our three children and our energetic yellow lab named Fisher. Brady is a freshman at ODU (Go Monarchs!), Jack is a junior in high school and our youngest, Elise, is a 7th grader. When I'm not teaching or tutoring, I enjoy crafting with my Cricut, playing Pickle Ball, and cheering at my son's cross country/track meets and at my daughter's basketball games and swim meets. Teaching young children is my passion, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to teach Liberty Eagles!
