Mrs. Bonnie Styles

Welcome to SEARCH!

My name is Mrs. Bonnie Styles and I've been a SEARCH teacher for several years  Prior to that, I taught 5th grade for a long time, in Loudoun mostly, and for a couple of years in Fairfax county.  I'm also the SEARCH teacher for Ball's Bluff ES in Leesburg.

I have three of my own children.  My older son graduated from LCPS in 2020.   My daughter will be a Senior in high school this year, and my youngest is in 6th grade.  I have three dogs (all chocolate Labrador retreivers) that bring a lot of joy to my life and I also enjoy gardening and making my yard look nice.

Teaching SEARCH allows me to share unusual, different kinds of things with students that they might not typically see during the regular school day.  We complete puzzles and play games, learn new things and explore new ways to think about things we already know to encourage deeper learning.  We learn about extraordinary people outside of mainstream history (ever heard of Horace Pippin or Roger Price?)   SEARCH encourages students to think their own way, build stamina for challenging tasks and to be creative thinkers and problem solvers.  I love to see students doing their best and discovering where their talents lie.
