Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Christopher Painter
I am excited to start my seventh year at Discovery and I am looking forward to an incredible year working with our staff and families.
This is my 15th year working for Loudoun County Public Schools and my 20th year in education. Throughout my career in Loudoun County, I spent 4 years at Legacy Elementary School teaching second grade and working as the Administrative Intern, as well as I worked 4 years as the Assistant Principal at Horizon Elementary. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Penn State, The Behrend College and received my teaching certification from Mercyhurst College. I also have a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from George Mason University.
I was born and raised in Grove City, Pennsylvania and I have 2 beautiful children. Kylee, my daughter, will be starting 5th grade this school year at Discovery Elementary and Kayden, my son, will be entering 2nd grade. Finally, my amazing wife will be starting her 1st full year as the Assistant Principal at Lowes Island Elementary. In my spare time I love to read and I enjoy cheering for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins.
I am privileged to be a part of the Discovery Elementary community and I know together we will continue to do amazing things for our students. I look forward to working with our students, parents, and teachers to ensure another tremendous year!
