    Mrs. Shelley Oñate is enjoying her eleventh year here as an ELL Teacher at Harper Park Middle School.

    She has a B.A. from Mary Baldwin University, and graduated from George Mason University with a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Literacy Pk-12. She is also a licensed Reading Specialist with the state of Virginia, and is a member of the Virginia State Reading Association - Washington, DC Chapter. VSRA advocates for students in their pursuit of literacy success by providing support to ensure all children have access to rich and vigorous materials and programs to spark a love for reading.  She is also enjoying her fourth year as a New Teacher Mentor with Loudoun County.

    This summer, she spent time in Puerto Rico with family and concentrated on preparing our Great Pyrenees, Misty, to become a therapy dog. She and her husband, Erik, have three boys and enjoy living in the beautiful countryside of Clarke County. 

    Mrs. Onate will be co-teaching with Civics 8, Science 8 as well as History 6 and 7. Her daily schedule is below. Please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher or myself if you have any questions or concerns. We're here to help! I hope your child has a fantastic year as a Harper Park Hurricane!
