Mrs. Jennifer Askelson

Welcome to 3rd Grade!  I am so honored to a part of the Legacy Elementary family. Although this year will be like no other, I know that we will make the best of it! I am so excited to meet my students and looking forward to discovering new ways to learn, connect, and grow together!
This will be my 26th year teaching and 8th year teaching in Loudoun County.  I have previously taught kindergarten through fourth grades in Prince William and Fairfax County Schools.  I received my undergraduate degree from Radford University.  I live in Brambleton with my husband, children (ages 15-19), and adorable goldendoodles, Murphy and Mia.  I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and vacationing at the beach.  I knew at a very early age that I wanted to be a teacher and feel so blessed to be doing something that I am so passionate about!!
I am excited to begin this journey with your child!  My goal is to provide a safe, fun, and engaging learning environment.  Your child will feel loved, respected, and successful.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I believe in open communication and a meaningful connection between home and school! My class motto, WE CAN DO HARD THINGS holds new meaning this year. We are in this together! Legacy Strong!
