Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Ockrymiek (Oh-kri-mick), but I’m happy to go by “Ms. Miek.” I am very excited to join Potowmack Elementary. I grew up just down the road in Herndon, and then I attended Longwood University where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, and a minor in Theatre Arts. This will be my eighth year teaching, and my sixth with Loudoun County. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, and I love having fun and being creative in the classroom.
Right now, I am excited to be working on my Master of Education degree through the University of Virginia. Being in the school again, and learning about the newest research is inspiring. When I am not in the classroom, I love spending time with my family and my dog, working out, reading books, and watching movies.
I’m excited to meet everyone and start an amazing year on the 2nd grade team at Potowmack Elementary!
