My name is Alexis Smucker.  I've been a 5th grade Special Education Teacher at Hillside for 2 years and teaching in LCPS for 5 years.  I received my undergraduate degree from James Madison University (Go Dukes!) and I have a Master's Degree from George Mason University in Special Education K-12. I am originally from Connecticut, but have lived in the Northern Virginia area since graduating from JMU.

    When I'm not teaching I am spending time with my husband, 10 month old daughter, Haleigh, and our dog Duke (who conveniently had this name when we adopted him!) I am so excited to have a wonderful and successful school year with your students!
