Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Amy Damele
Hello Students and Parents,
This is my first year at Trailside Middle School, and I am very excited to be a part of the Timber Wolf community!
I am originally from Ohio where I graduated from Wittenberg University with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. I coached collegiate volleyball for several years before focusing my goals on serving and advocating for others in the social services field. I received my Master’s in Social Work from Rutgers University. Since then, I have worked with community mental health agencies, focusing on individual and group therapy, family systems, substance abuse treatment, and case management.
Being a military family (Air Force), we moved from Florida to Loudoun County last year and have enjoyed exploring and getting to know the area. In my free time, I love spending time with my son and husband, traveling, playing and watching sports (Go Buckeyes!), and visiting with family and friends.
I am so thrilled to be at Trailside and look forward to getting to know students and families throughout the school year. My goals this year are to support the social-emotional/behavioral health of all students and to act as a link between school, student, family and community. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
