Mrs. Nina Neal

I am from Maryland. I went to the University of Maryland, College Park (Go Terps!), that is where I got my B.S. in Family Studies. I have lived in Virginia for the last 10 years. I have 2 kids that go to school in Loudoun County and I have really loved working and having kids in this county.

I have always worked with children. I was a preschool/Pre K teacher for 7 years. After teaching for a few years I was promoted to Director of Finance for the school I was working at, but I missed teaching after 3 years. I decided to make a small career change into the public school system. I received my teaching license from Shenandoah University in EL. This is my second year at Sully and it has been like a second home. The students and families have been great to work with. I look forward to many years teaching your students and helping them become the best they can be!

I have worked with Kindergarten the last year and this year. I believe that young children learn through hands-on activities, especially when they are learning a new language. I strive to provide that for all my English Language students. If you have any questions or would like to reach out to me, my email is nina.neal@lcps.org. You can also find me in room 404 & 405. I am looking forward to having a wonderful year of learning and growing in Kindergarten!

Mr. Seth Stahler

I am the EL teacher for the first grade.  I earned a BA from JMU and have a MAT as well as an EL teaching endorsement.  I have worked in Title l schools my entire career.  I am drawn to schools and coworkers who want to make a difference and help guide students.  I love the diversity of cultures, languages, and backgrounds of the students at Sully.  They have rich backgrounds, are hard working, and always strive to better themselves every day.  

I am originally from Vermont, but have made Virginia my home for many years.  I like to be outside getting my hands dirty working on the land!  I love to exercies, MTB, climb, run, play guitar, DIY projects, and run machinery.  Most of all, I love spending time with my family and showing my son the ways of the world through hard work, play, and kindness.

Welcome to Sully!

Sincerely, 

Seth Stahler
