Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Darell Eldridge and this will be my 15th year teaching in Loudoun County. I joined the Round Hill family last year as a 5th grade teacher and taught DL for the entire year. I previously taught 3rd grade at Meadowland Elementary for five years and most recently taught 4th grdae at Seldens Landing for 8 years. I am originally from Michigan, but currently reside in the Wild and Wonderful state of West Virginia. I grdauated from the University of Valley Forge with a bachelor's degree in Elemenetary Education and also completed a master's degree with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My family and I live in Falling Waters, WV where my wife teaches. I have a daughter, Zoe, who is entering the 7th grade and a son, Logan, who is starting 4th grade. My family and I also have a dog named Coco. In my free time I love to fish, work on cars, spend time with my family at Hershey Park, and also travel. This summer my family and I spent two weeks in Africa working at a school/orphanage.
It's going to feel so good to be back at school in-person with students this year. I am believing this will be the best year ever.
