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 ninth school year in Loudoun County, and my third 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).
I have a daughter, Nora, who will be turning three in September, and a one-year-old son, Nolan, with my husband, Ryan. Spending time with my family is something I cherish very much in these early years with my kids! We love to go for walks, play at parks, and spent a lot of time exploring libraries and the pool this summer. It is going to be a great school year here at Hillside!
