Mrs. Andrea Kling
Hi, I am ecstatic to be starting my 20th year in Loudoun County Public Schools and 14th year as a librarian. This is my fifth year at Trailside and I am excited about all of the new opportunities that are available. Prior to coming to Trailside, I was at Waterford Elementary as the Librarian for nine years. Before moving to the library I was a middle school math teacher at Belmont Ridge Middle and Harmony Middle.
I am a Loudoun native and I always knew that I wanted to come back to teach in Loudoun. While at Lovettsville Elementary, Blue Ridge Middle and Loudoun Valley High, I had some phenomenal teachers that shared their love for teaching and encouraged me to pursue education. After graduation, I attended Longwood University and received a Bachelors in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education. I began teaching and fell in love with reading young adult literature, so I went back to school to get my Masters in Library Science from Catholic University. I cannot wait to share my love of reading with the Trailside community!
I have been married for 18 years and have two daughters who are 12 and 8. My oldest is in the 7th grade and loves cheerleading, gymnastics, dance, music and art. My youngest is in the 2nd grade and loves soccer and being ACTIVE! They keep my husband and I busy, but bring us so much joy!
