Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to an exciting new year at Frederick Douglass Elementary! I am looking forward to teaching fifth grade again at Frederick Douglass. I want to do my best to ensure that the students in our class have a positive and productive year. The sooner I get to know the students, the better. So, please feel free to reach out to let me know about concerns, likes, dislikes, fears and hopes for this upcoming year.
I have always loved school. I graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Child Pychology. I received my Masters in Education from Marymount University. I began teaching in Fairfax County. This will be my 18th year teaching for Loudoun County. I taught 5th grade for 13 years then decided to give Middle School a try. I taught Math and Coding to some great 6th and 7th graders but missed the atmosphere of the 5th grade. So, I am so happy to be returning to FDE!
I have lived in Lucketts since 1995 and raised 4 children in Loudoun County. My oldest daughter is working in Austin, Texas. My second daughter is attending nursing school. My son just graduated from Virginia Tech Corp of Cadets and completing his 5th year. My youngest daughter is also attending Virginia Tech. So, I am an empty nester with just my two dogs and two cats. Mr. Bredice keeps me company too!
Once again, I am excited about our upcoming year together. My philosophy is to ignite a love of reading, inspire budding writers, motivate problem solving and thinking skill in math and science as well as creating an atmosphere of kindness and respect. Go Team Bredice! Please know that I am flexible and try to be a good communicator. Please feel free to email with any questions and/or concerns. Email
I am looking forward to productive and wonderful year with our 5th grade class,
