Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 2nd Grade! My name is Lorraine Cheng-Yip. I am so excited to be your child's second grade teacher for the 2023/2024 school year. This will be my fifth year at Countryside, and my 14th year teaching. I was born and raised in New York. I started my teaching career as a Learning Specialist in New York City, where I taught for seven years. I've worked in Catholic schools, charter schools, and independent schools. Prior to my time at Countryside, I taught first, second, and third grade Humanities at an independent school in McLean, Virginia. 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 all that Virginia has to offer!
I am excited to get to know your students and families. I know that together we can make this school year a positive one that is full of growth and learning!
