Angela Abbott

My name is Mrs. Abbott. I am a long-time native of Loudoun County, Virginia - It is the the only place I have ever lived! I graduated from Potomac Falls High School and C.S. Monroe Technology Center (Culinary Arts) in 2001. I received my bachelors degree in Communications from George Mason University with a minor in Estuary and Marine Science. In 2018 I completed the Career Switcher program offered through Shenandoah University - This program is an alternative route to teaching licensure.

I have always had a soft spot for the sciences, but my true passions are cooking, sewing, knitting, interpersonal communication, and fiscal responsibility. That is why I concentrated in Career and Technical Education (CTE) — specifically, Family and Consumer Science (FACS).

Although I am just at the beginning of my teaching career, I hope my students enjoy a teacher who is eager to provide quality instruction in an active and stimulating learning environment.

Hello, my name is Mr Bearce, I graduated from S.U.N.Y Cortland in 2001 with a degree in physical education. I was then recalled by the Marine Corps and completed 8 more years of active duty service for this great nation. After being honorably discharged I attended Universal Technical Institute. I graduated in in 2013 with a certificate in heavy diesel and industrial mechanics. I worked in the industry for 4 years, making my way to supervisor, for National Express bus company.
I then decided to pursue my original passion, of teaching. I decided to take the technology education praxis exam and enter the teacher's force as a technology education teacher. I have been working in Loudoun county for 3 years and it has been a great experience, at Brambleton Middle School.
