Hello! Welcome to Hillside AM ECSE! My name is Elizabeth Tao. This will be my 10th year teaching ECSE and my 4th year in LCPS. I previously worked for Fairfax County Public Schools. I received my MeD in Early Childhood from George Mason University and my BA from James Madison University. I am also licensed to teach PreK-3rd grade general education and English Language Learners but Early Childhood Special Education is my passion. I love teaching and learning from diverse-abled children. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my husband, my 16-year-old cairn terrier mix Lovie, and two parrots, Sora and Yoshi. I also like to read and watch sci-fantasy books and movies, especially Star Wars and Marvel movies. I'm looking forward to an awesome school year!
