Mrs. Dunbar



I am excited to begin another great school year here at Discovery Elementary School and cannot wait to meet my new peeps for the 2020-21 school year!  This will be my 14th year teaching and my 4th year here at Discovery.  Prior to coming to Discovery I taught in Prince William County for 10 years.  

This has been an exciting time for me!  I got married during quarantine (hence why I am no longer Ms. Putman!) and my husband and I are now expecting a baby girl later this Fall!  We are both thrilled and excited to welcome our new addition to our family!

I was born and raised here in Loudoun County (Lovettville) and graduated from Loudoun Valley High School.  Following high school, I attended Virginia Commonwealth University and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice.  I then attended Marymount University and earned a Master's in Elementary Education.  


Outside of the classroom I enjoy cooking/baking, cheering on my favorite teams (let's go Washington Football Team, Capitals, and Nationals), and spending time with my family.
