Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Eileen Lau
My name is Ms. Lau and I am the 8th grade Science Learning Specialist. This is my first year at Eagle Ridge but I have been an educator for 25 years. Fostering a love of learning and empowering students with the knowledge and skills to maximize their potential is my goal for each student.
I grew up in Northern Virginia. I have a Bachelor of Science in Special Education from James Madison University, a Master's degree in Education: Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University and a second Master's degree in Education: Administration and Supervision from Marymount University. I have worked in schools in Fairfax County, Pennsylvania and Loudoun County as a teacher and as an administrator.
When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my husband and three "semi-grown" kids, Connor, Megan and James. I also enjoy my two dogs, Molly and Ziggy. I have a growth mindset so I love learning new things and traveling to new places. I love the beach, technology, photography, running, reading and (Washington) sports!
