Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Melissa Thorne
My name is Melissa Thorne and I’m excited to join the team at Creighton’s Corner Elementary School! I grew up in Loudoun County and live in Leesburg with my family. When I’m not at school, I enjoy reading, running and cheering on my children from the sidelines.
I attended Virginia Commonwealth University where I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Social Work. After many years of providing services to children, adolescents and families I decided to stay at home with my children as they started elementary school. Serving as a volunteer in their classrooms helped me discover my passion for teaching. I began teaching preschool and later accepted a position in special education with Loudoun County Public Schools. Most recently, I earned my teaching license, with an ELL endorsement, from Shenandoah University.
It is my goal to provide a safe and welcoming environment where students can strive for their personal best. I am looking forward to teaching at Creighton’s Corner and building relationships throughout the school and our community.
