• Meet Mrs. Hermens 

     
    Mrs. Hermens 14  
     
    I am looking forward to my fifth year at Sycolin Creek Elementary!  Fourth grade is a wonderful year, and I am excited about studying Virginia's rich history and geography with my students.  
     
    Prior to coming to Sycolin Creek I taught third and fourth grade at Countryside Elementary for seven years.  I also taught fourth grade in Prince William County.  I have been a preschool teacher, worked in the Title 1 Math program, and spent two summers as a Summer Safari instructor at the National Zoo.  I have a Bachelor's degree in French Language and Literature from Virginia Tech and a Master's degree in Elementary Education from ODU.  I believe in strong home/school communication and in learning with laughter and hands-on activities.  I look forward to working with the parents of my students to meet the educational needs of their children, and hope that you will contact me at any time with questions, concerns, or general communication.
