Mrs. Anida Levesque

Hello Timberwolves!  I am so excited for the 2022-2023 school year!  This is my 14th year in Loudoun County Schools but my 2nd year as a librarian. 

I am originally from San Antonio, Texas, and attended Southwest Texas State University where I majored in Communication Disorders and minored in Science.  I received my Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 1991 from the University of Texas.  Thirty years later in May 2021, I received my Master's degree in School Librarianship from Longwood University.  I have lived in Northern Virginia since late 1999 and I have two children who attend Loudoun County Public Schools.  Trailside is one of my neighborhood schools and one of my daughters is a current student here at Trailside and my other daughter attends Stone Bridge High School.  

In my spare time, I love to take nature photos, garden, crochet, and of course read books. One of my passions is raising and releasing monarch butterflies.  My favorite genre is YA Fantasy and my favorite YA authors are currently Rainbow Rowell, Elizabeth Acevedo, and Erika L. Sanchez; however, my favorite author of all time is Stephen King.  

I live in Ashburn with my husband, my two daughters, two cats, two dogs, and a parakeet named Simon.
