Hello there! My name is Mrs. Bethany Waterfall, and I am so happy to be here at Hillside Elementary! This is my 7th year of teaching! I spent five years teaching in Fairfax County; 3 years in 1st grade and 2 years in 3rd grade. This is my second year in Loudoun County, and I can't wait to get started working with my 3rd graders... especially since they are my same kiddos as last year! It's going to be a great year!
My wonderful husband, Ned and I adopted a puppy last June before the school year ended. Her name is Rey (Like The Last Jedi from Star Wars) and she is a Blue Heeler mix, we think with some Corgi. Mr. Ned is an Arlington Firefighter and Medic! We like to spend our time traveling, watching a lot of shows on Netflix, and playing with the puppy.
I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA! And yes, that means I am a Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates fan! Although, I'm a diehard Penguins fan and truly enjoy the sport of hockey. My husband, on the other hand, cheers for the Boston Bruins... so there's a nice rivalry in our home! But there's also the CAPS rivalry at school!
I'm so excited for my second year here at Hillside, and I can't wait to see my amazing class again! Please feel free to contact me through my email if you need me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's to a great year!
