Hello Liberty Eagles!
I am so excited to start the year off fresh at Liberty Elementary School! I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in December '17 with my Masters in Teaching and Bachelor's of Interdiscplinary Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education. I was a student-athlete and received a full scholarship to play volleyball. I was on the Athletic Director's Honor Roll for many semesters while at VCU. Being a student-athlete taught me many life skills that I incorporate into my classroom. I believe that leadership, building a community, and working together all help students succeed. I am a huge believer in forming relationships with my students; learning how my students learn and having them reach their full potential is a goal of mine. I also am a huge encourager on students finding their passion and doing what they love. I have a twitter account so please follow all of the wonderful activities we do in our classroom! @Miss_LaMantia4. My twitter feed is also embedded below.
In my free time, I love traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with my friends and family. In the summer of 2016, I took a month long trip to Italy where I taught elementary school students to speak English. It was a life changing trip that I cherish everyday. While I was there, I visited the cities of Venice, Florence, and Cinque Terre. I plan on continuing my love for travel during the summer time. This past summer, I visited Amsterdam which was an amazing experience. I am visiting Mexico in the spring and Greece in the summer. I currently live in Ashburn and grew up in South Riding.
I cannot wait to continue the rest of the year learning, growing, and establishing my classroom. Please do not hesitate if you have any questions!
