Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Speer

Hello! My name is Kelsey Speer and I teach 3rd - 5th grade self-contained special education! This is my fourth year at Countryside and I'm looking forward to another great year!


I attended Grove City College in Grove City, PA for my Bachelor's degree in Special Education and Early Childhood Education. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and although I love living and working in Loudoun County, I will always be a Steelers fan. I am a big sports fan, I love reading mysteries, I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, and I love to play the piano! 


In our classroom we love to explore hands-on projects and activities, such as our past year's Thanksgiving dinner, holiday museum, and refurbishing our courtyard and planting a classroom garden. Check out some pictures of our projects in the photo gallery below!


I am so excited for the upcoming school year. If you would like to contact me, I can be reached at
