Welcome to 1st grade!  I am so excited to be starting my third year here at Sully and my 14th year teaching overall!  I am originally from Pennsylvania where I taught for 6 years before my husband's job transferred him down here to Virginia in 2013.  

I graduated from Millersville University in 2007 with Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education.  I received a Master's Degree in Education where I focused on Early Childhood Literacy in 2011.

My husband and I live close to Harpers and enjoy hiking and kayaking on the weekends.  Our first daughter Aubrey was born in October 2019.  I have loved all the adventures of motherhood and watching her grow!  I love teaching first grade and instilling a love of learning in children. 

I look forward to working with you to help your child grow!  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Welcome to 1st grade! My name is Miss. Solano and I am beyond excited to be apart of the Sully Hornets this year! This will be my third year teaching first grade in Virginia. I am originally from Newark, New Jersey, where I lived 18 years of my life. I was raised by two amazing Ecuadorian parents, who have always supported my dreams. 

With their love and support, I graduated from West Virginia University in May 2018 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Elementary Education and moved to Virginia shortly afterwards. At this moment, I live in Leesburg with my fiance and during my free time, I love to go on hikes, write and dance.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with your child and you this year! Go Hornets!!

I am the EL teacher for the first grade.  I earned a BA from JMU and have a MAT as well as an EL teaching endorsement.  I have worked in Title l schools my entire career.  I am drawn to schools and coworkers who want to make a difference and help guide students.  I love the diversity of cultures, languages, and backgrounds of the students at Sully.  They have rich backgrounds, are hard working, and always strive to better themselves every day.  

I am originally from Vermont, but have made Virginia my home for many years.  I like to be outside getting my hands dirty working on the land!  I love to exercies, MTB, climb, run, play guitar, DIY projects, and run machinery.  Most of all, I love spending time with my family and showing my son and daughter the ways of the world through hard work, play, and kindness.

Welcome to Sully!

Sincerely, 

Seth Stahler
