Mr. Jason White
This is Mr. White's 29th year teaching, even though he looks and seems so young. Way back in the mists of time, Mr. White attended VA Tech, where he met his wife of 30 years. He has two adult children, and one who is a senior in college at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he plays basketball (Go Ducks!). Mr. White has three dogs, two rescues, named Tess and Gunner (oh, Mr. White also LOVES Arsenal Football Club in London), and one Great Dane, a crazy adolescent (huge) puppy named Pip.
Mr. White comes to Lightridge from Potomac Falls High School, where he taught for seventeen years. Before that, he taught at Herndon High for eight years. Before that? Well, at various times, he worked at a paint store, a grocery store, Hardee's, and McDonald's. When he was a kid, he used to cut the grass for his grandfather and his church.
Mr. White has taught almost every class an English teacher can at every level. He is most proud of his work helping students who do not believe in themselves find out how great they really are.
Mr. White also sponsors Guitar Club (he's getting better at guitar!) and Tabletop Club (he's getting better at Dungeons and Dragons!).
