Degrees and Certifications:
Hi fabulous first graders and families! My name is Kelsey Newbery and I am so excited to be your teacher this year! I grew up in Syracuse, NY where I attended Le Moyne College. I earned my degree in Psychology with Childhood and Special Education. After graduating in 2018, my sister and I decided to make the move to northern Virginia. The past two years I have been a special education assistant at Liberty Elementary in South Riding. This will be my first official year as a teacher and I can't wait to begin the adventure with all of you! I do my best to make learning fun and to make my students smile or laugh at least once throughout the day. When I am not at school, you will find me shopping, watching a Disney movie, or trying out a new recipe. I also love spending time with my family, reading, and exploring all that northern Virginia has to offer! This year is going to be really special not only because it is my first year, but also because we have never had a year like this before. Together we will make it the best that it can be!
