    Go Caps!  
    Welcome!  My name is Mrs. Tovey and I am the second grade EL teacher.  This is my fourth 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.
    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
