Hello Countryside Cougars!
I am so excited to start another school year, with everyone HERE. I so enjoyed getting to meet many of you last year as a full-time substitute for Countryside. Prior to last year, I subbed at several Sterling area schools, but Countryside was always my favorite. You Cougars are so kind, bright, hard-working, and fun to be with. This year I will be focused on helping just a few classes as a teacher's assistant, but always looking forward to seeing all of you as we go about our days.
When not at school, I am hanging out with my family: my hilarious husband, three almost-grown kids, and my octogenarian parents (google it!). We love long walks in the woods with Gio, our dog, Washington Nationals Games, and getting together with friends. I am almost a native Northern Virginian, having lived here since the age of four, graduated from VA TECH (BS Psychology), and now, an expert at driving in traffic.
Let's make this a great year! Mrs. Shepard
