• Welcome to Mrs. Dennen's Webpage!


    My name is Maura Dennen and I am delighted to be one of the S.E.A.R.C.H. teachers at Hillside Elementary School.  I have a Master of Arts degree in Education and an endorsement in Gifted Education.  I have also previously taught in Charlottesville, Virginia and Wilton, Connecticut.  This is my 12th year in education.


    My family and I have resided in Loudoun County for the past 15 years and we love the area.  I'm passionate about teaching and I am very pleased to be able to work with local children to help develop young thinkers in the county in which I live.  This is my third year as a SEARCH teacher for Loudoun County Public Schools.  I have also previously taught in Charlottesville, Virginia and Wilton, Connecticut. This is my 12th year in education.  


    When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  My husband and I have 3 wonderful children who all attend Loudoun County Public Schools.  They keep us very busy with all of their sports and activities!  On the weekend you will often find me at the athletic fields cheering on my two sons and daughter!  I enjoy getting outdoors: hiking, gardening, walking my dog, playing with my kids.  I also enjoy traveling, reading and love going to the beach!  


    I look forward to working with our talented students and faculty this year, while I help to challenge the young minds of our students.
