    Hello, students and parents, and welcome to the start of another fantastic year in FIFTH GRADE at Sully Elementary!

     
    My name is Mrs. Knickmeyer and I could not be more excited to work with your child this year! This year will be my sixth year as a Sully Hornet and I have loved working with the wonderful students in this school. Prior to joining the fifth grade team at Sully two years ago, I taught third grade for three years and loved it! Before joining the Sully Staff, I earned a Bachelor of Art in Environmental Sciences and a Master of Teaching in Elementary Education from the University of Virginia (GO HOOS!). In addition to my degrees from UVA, I am also certified to teach Middle School Math, Middle School Science, and High School Earth and Space Science, but my heart is in elementary school. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family & friends, my dog, Ella, cheering on the UVA basketball team, and traveling.
     
    I am excited to meet you all and look forward to a great year working together.
    Please feel free to contact me at any time!
     
    IT'S ALWAYS A GREAT DAY TO BE A HORNET!

    Hello students and parents! Welcome to a fantastic year in 5th Grade at Sully!

    My name is Ashley Melton and I am so excited for a wonderful 2019-2020 school year in 5th Grade!  This is my third year at Sully and I am very excited to spend my days with another wonderful group of students.

    Prior to joining the 5th Grade Team at Sully, I taught 4th Grade in Fairfax County, VA and in Anne Arundel County, MD.  I earned my degree in Elementary Education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA.  In my free time outside of school, I love to relax with my husband and our two adorable cats.  I enjoy cooking, baking, and spending time in the garden!

    I am excited to meet you all and look forward to a great year working together!

    Howdy, students and parents, and welcome a new, and fantastic 5th grade year at Sully!


    My name is Mrs. Thomas and I am extremely proud to be a part of the Sully 5th Grade Team! This year will be my second year as a Sully Hornet and I am thrilled to have your child in my 5th grade class! Prior to joining the fifth grade team at Sully last year, I taught preschool for two and a half years at Ramstein Child Development Center in Germany, and loved it! I earned my degree in Elementary Education from Texas A&M University in 2014 (Whoop! Gig' Em Ags!) I am married to my college sweetheart and have two beautiful girls! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my little family and friends, traveling ( 16+ countries so far!), and drawing/painting!

    This will definitely be a year to remember as your child grows and gets challenged in new ways, in order to transition smoothly into Middle school!
