Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Katie Baron
I am very excited to be joining the Trailside Middle School team as a 7th grade Family and Consumer Science teacher! I received a B.S. in Family and Child Development from Virginia Tech, "Go Hokies!' and gained my teaching licensure through Shenandoah University with an endorsement in Family and Consumer Science.
My husband and I are both Loudoun County natives and are thrilled to be raising our two boys here as well. Our oldest son will be a freshman at Briar Woods High School and our youngest will be in 5th grade at Hillside Elementary. When I am not teaching you'll likely see me on a soccer field, a basketball court or a swim meet cheering on our kiddos!
While this is my first year teaching middle school students, I do have over 20 years worth of teaching experience! For the past 10 years, I've taught Pre-K at a local preschool and loved every minute of it! I will certainly miss the little guys, but I am genuinely looking forward to working with older students in the next phase of my career!
I can't wait to utilize my education and teaching experience to help my students learn the critical life skills needed to become successful members of tomorrow's workplaces, families and communities! And I'm even more excited to be doing that for the next generation of Loudoun County students!
