• Welcome to Second Grade!


    Hello!  My name is Patricia Maher and I am very excited to join the Hillside Hawk family this year.  I have been teaching in Loudoun County Public Schools for over 15 years. Previously, I taught in Arlington County Public Schools. I have also been a teacher of  Early Childhood Education in Loudoun County and for the Department of Labor in Washington, DC.

      I received a B.S. in Education from VA Tech and an M. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with a Specialization in Early Childhood Education from George Mason University. In addition to teaching young children, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, swimming, and going to the beach.  My favorite children's book is "The Raft" by Jim LaMarche. It reminds me of my childhood spent growing up along the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia Beach where I took my first swimming lessons!

    In Second Grade we learn  read to learn. It is an amazing year of growth.  I strive to create a classroom community that is engaging, inclusive, and welcoming to all students.  If you need to contact me please email me at Patricia.Maher@lcps.org. 

    I look forward to a great year together!
