Hello! My name is Kimberly Jay and I am the fourth grade EL teacher. This is my 8th year teaching English Language Learners at Countryside Elementary. I absolutely love the students, staff, and community, and look forward to an exciting school year!
This is my 19th year teaching! I have worked with English Language Learners in grades 1-6 in Fairfax County and was also a Reading Recovery teacher in Phoenix, Arizona. I received my Bachelor's Degree in International Affairs and Spanish from James Madison University and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction (with endorsements in ESOL, Special Education, and Early Childhood Education) from George Mason University.
In my free time I enjoy traveling (especially to the beach!), running, and spending time with family and friends. I also like to practice speaking Spanish- que bueno!
Please feel free to contact me at Kimberly.Jay@lcps.org if you have any questions or concerns. :-)
