Welcome to second grade! I am looking forward to meeting all my new second graders and starting the school year!My name is Lynn Pickering and this will be my eighth year teaching and my fourth year in second grade. I have taught third grade here at Liberty as well as in Prince William County. I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and attended The Pennsylvania State University, where I majored in Elementary & Kindergarten Education and minored in Special Education. I also received my masters from George Mason in the spring of 2013.My husband, Steve Pickering, is a dean at Sterling Middle School. We enjoy being able to both work for Loudoun County! We have a one year old daughter and spent the summer taking her to see family & friends in Pennsylvania and went on vacation to Massanutten. :)We are going to have a great year together! I look forward to seeing each student grow and succeed. I am eager to collaborate with parents and do whatever it takes to help each child reach their potential.Please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can send a note to school, call the office, or email me. I look forward to a wonderful year at Liberty with my second grade Shining Stars!
