    Administrative Intern
    Debbie Ragan 
    Ms. Ragan is excited to move into her new role as Discovery’s Administrative Intern after teaching first grade in this wonderful community since the school’s inaugural year. She is looking forward to further cultivating trusting relationships and to foster an environment of respect, deep commitment, and collaboration. She is eager to team up with our creative and highly motivated staff, our enthusiastically supportive families, and our excited students. 
    Ms. Ragan is a Minnesotan at heart, but she has lived in several other chilly places including New Hampshire, Utah, and Maine. She has also lived in the not-so-chilly state of Texas, where she earned her B.S. in Elementary Education at the University of Houston with specializations in Early Childhood and Biology. She later received her first Master’s in Initiatives in Education at George Mason University, with an emphasis on math education and character development.  She has taught first grade in Loudoun County for the past twelve years, allowing her the privilege to mentor teachers and build Professional Learning Communities. This then inspired her to return to George Mason University to earn her second Master’s in Educational Leadership. 
    She has a daughter in college studying Psychology on the Pre-Med track and an angelic black lab. She loves to read and her favorite children’s book is whichever one she is currently reading. She enjoys watching hockey with her daughter, even though they root for different teams.  

    Ms. Ragan looks forward to another outstanding year at Discovery as we blaze new trails together!  Please feel free to contact her anytime at school (571) 252-2370 or by email at Deborah.Ragan@lcps.org
