Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kelly Hoag
I am so excited to begin my third year with the seventh graders of Trailside Middle School! This year I will be teaching Life Science. I can't wait to show my students how exciting Science can be and show my students how they can relate to the material.
In 2015, I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies with a minor in Special Education from James Madison University (GO DUKES!). The following year I earned my Masters Degree in Special Education, also from JMU. I plan to visit JMU to see as many sporting events as possible!
I am originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and have lived in Loudoun County for two years now, but will always be an avid Philadephia sports phanatic! When I'm not teaching, I like to bake, binge-watch tv shows on Netflix, and travel.
Throughout the school year, I hope to build relationships with all of my students through learning about their interests, likes, and dislikes, as well as how they learn and how I can be an effective teacher. I believe that every student has the ability to learn and be successful. I hope to develop confidence in my students by pushing them to their fullest potential and watching them succeed.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. I look forward to working with each and every one of you this year!
