     Mrs. Tovey
    Welcome!  My name is Mrs. Tovey and I am the second grade EL teacher.  This is my fifth year teaching at Countryside and I look forward to working with the second grade and EL teams again. Prior to coming to Countryside, I worked at Rolling Ridge, Discovery, and Creighton's Corner in grades K-4. I love being a teacher but I also love learning! Before and during my teaching career, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in English with a minor in Mathematics from Radford University, a Master of Education with a concentration in English as a Second Language and an endorsement in Middle School Mathematics from Marymount University, and a Master of Science in Information Technology also from Marymount University.
    As your child's teacher, my goal is to help advance your child's academic career while making them feel safe and a part of a community.  
    When I'm not teaching, I love traveling with my husband and son, watching the Redskins and Capitals play, dabbling in photography and spending time with family and friends.
    Although this year will be very different from previous years, I am excited for this school year and I look forward to working with your child. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me - karishma.tovey@lcps.org
