Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Room 19! My name is Lorraine Cheng-Yip. I am so excited to be your child's third grade teacher for the 2019/2020 school year. This is my first year at Countryside, but I have been in the education field for ten years. I started my teaching career as a Learning Specialist. For the last two years, I taught first, second, and third grade Humanities at an independent school in McLean. Prior to that, I taught kindergarten and first grade in Red Hook, Brooklyn. I have a bachelor's in Sociology and a minor in Child and Family Studies from Stony Brook University. I received a dual master's in Childhood Education and Special Education from New York University.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy traveling with my husband, going back to New York to spend time with our family and friends, and exploring Virginia!
I believe that it is a partnership between us and together we can make your child's educational experience one that is filled with positivity, growth, and learning! I look forward to getting to know your children and your families. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions or concerns you may have. Click here to send me an e-mail. Here's to a fantastic and productive year in third grade!
