Jennie Monkelien
  • Hello Hillside Families! My name is Jennie Monkelien, and I am looking forward to another great year as the Gifted Resource Teacher for the Hawks. I work with all grade levels, kindergarten to fifth grade at Hillside. This will be my 14th year of teaching and seventh year with LCPS.  I previously taught for seven years in Fairfax County. 

    I attended George Mason University for both my Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Master's in Curriculum and Instruction.  I consider myself a lifelong learner and completed coursework through UVA for a gifted education endorsement. I am also a proud Loudoun County resident and live in Sterling with my husband and two sons, Landon and Xander. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, taking trips to the beach, reading, drinking coffee, and playing outside with my sons and dog, Zuma. I'm looking forward to a great year learning together!
