Hi! I am Mrs. Briskin and I’m so excited to be teaching at Horizon Elementary School! I studied at James Madison University (JMU) where I got my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2010. I started my teaching career student teaching in Prince William County in Kindergarten and completed the year teaching 3rd grade. In 2010, I began working in Fairfax County Public Schools where I taught first grade for 6 years.
In 2017 I moved to Loudoun County and continued teaching close to my new home. I met my husband playing Ultimate Frisbee in Washington D.C and we are expecting our first child in August this year! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family and with our dog, Bubba.
I absolutely love teaching first grade and I'm so happy to be part of the Comet Family. I enjoy helping children learn important character traits and instilling a growth mindset. I look forward to another great year!
