Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Hillside Elementary families! My name is Mrs. Lapp, and I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade this year! This will be my eighth school year in Loudoun County, and my second year at Hillside. Before this school year, I have taught as a 5th grade Special Education teacher, a 2nd grade teacher, and a 5th grade general education teacher at Liberty Elementary, as well as a 1st grade teacher for two years at Ashburn Elementary. I am so happy to be returning as a Hillside Hawk!
I am originally from York, Pennsylvania and graduated from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education (Pre-K-4) and Special Education (Pre-K-8).
At the end of the school year last year and beginning of the summer, I went on maternity leave to have my son, Nolan, in late May! He is now three months old and such a happy baby! I also have an almost two year old daughter, Nora, with my husband, Ryan. It has been such a fun summer being home with Nolan, but I am definitely ready to return to work and have an amazing school year with your kiddos!
