Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Kelsey Souza and I am excited to be teaching second grade at Countryside Elementary School. I recently moved to Loudoun County from Massachusetts where I taught first grade for nine years. I am delighted to be part of the Countryside community!
I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Stonehill College. My love for teaching literacy led me to earn my master’s degree as a Reading Specialist from American International College. You will soon discover that I love books! My favorite part of the school day is getting to share picture books with the class during our daily read alouds. Our classroom library is filled with a variety of books to spark the joy of reading!
Partnerships with families, open communication and building relationships are important to me as an educator. Please feel free to contact me throughout the school year. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. Together we will make this a wonderful year in second grade!
