    Hello! Welcome to 2nd Grade!!!

    • I hope your summer vacation was safe, fun-filled and most of all relaxing! As our 2018-19 school year begins, I look forward to working with you to provide the best possible education for your child. 

    • My name is Danielle Kiernan (formerly Castillo) and I am thrilled to be returning to 2nd grade for another successful school year. This is going to be a fabulous year full of learning! This will be my 5th year teaching. Prior to 2nd grade, I taught 1st grade at Shenandoah County Public Schools.

    • I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I grew up in a family of five children. I moved to Virginia to attend James Madison University (Go Dukes!) where I earned a Masters Degree in teaching. I live in Reston with my husband, Chad.

    • I love reading, running, hiking, playing soccer, spending time with my family, and vacationing at the beach. I knew at a very early age that I wanted to be a teacher and feel so blessed to be doing something that I am so passionate about!

    My goal is to teach your child to the very best of my abilities! It’s my sincere hope to promote a positive learning environment and to instill in your child a lifelong love of learning.  YOU are the most important person in your child’s life, and together, I am confident we will form a strong partnership between home and school.  Supporting each other with our collective efforts is key to a successful year in second grade for your child.  I look forward to a safe and successful school year!

    Again, I welcome you warmly to the wonderful world of second grade! It is a privilege and an honor to be your child’s teacher for the coming year!

    Mrs. Danielle Kiernan
