• Mrs. Stapf   

         I am a Rhode Island girl with a Virginia address!  I live in Lovettsville with my husband and two boys. William is the oldest, and this year he is a freshman at the University of Northwestern Ohio.  Nicholas is a sophmore at Woodgrove High School, and is very excited about getting his drivers license soon. When I am not at school I can be found: hiding out at the beach, getting a pedicure, or swinging in my hammock READING a good book!

         I have a Master's Degree in Elementary and Middle Level Education from The State University of New York. A few years ago, I went back to college to obtain my Reading Specialist Certification from Shenandoah University.  I have experience working as both a middle and elementary level classroom teacher.  I have taught in New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia.  This will be my thirteenth year working in education, and my eighth year at Smart's Mill as a Reading Specialist.

    This is our dog Willow enjoying some nap time in the sunshine!  We adopted her from a rescue group called Save the Tails.  She used to live in West Virginia on a farm.  She and her sister got in a lot of mischief out there chasing cows!

    This is Rasberry and Garfield.  We adopted both of them as kittens from the Loudoun County Animal Shelter.  They have been a part of our family for seven years now.  Rasberry is brave and snuggley and her brother Garfield has the softest fur!
