Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and welcome to first grade! My name is Janie Lyman and I am looking forward to teaching first grade this year. This will be my 6th year at Round Hill. I started my teaching career at LCPS in 2nd grade at Lincoln Elementary, then moved and continued teaching 2nd grade at Dominion Trail. I taught kindergarten at Lowes Island. Then I stayed home with my 4 children for 7 years. I returned to the classroom when my youngest went to kindergarten. I taught 4th grade then 1st grade for 6 years at a private school before returning to Loudoun County Public Schools and Round Hill Elementary. I have been on the third grade team for the past 5 years. I am so excited about returning to first grade! This year will be my 20th year teaching! Time flies when you're having fun! I am looking forward to meeting each one of you and getting to know you during our year together.
I graduated from Shepherd College with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, PreK-8 certified. I am currently working on my Masters in Teaching.
I was born in upstate New York, then grew up in Loudoun County. I live in Berryville, Va with my husband Kevin, my four children (Natalie: a senior at The College of William & Mary; Maeve: a sophomore at Virginia Tech; Danny: a freshman at Emory & Henry; and Luke a junior at Clarke County High School.) and my two dogs Angus & Opal.
In my free time, I run (a lot), hike, read, cook and spend time with my family, friends and dogs. I also love watching my boys play football, basketball and baseball.
