My name is Mrs. Opseth and I am the Itinerant Reading Specialist here at Frederick Douglass Elementary. This year I will be spending my mornings at Frederick Douglass, and my afternoons at Catoctin. I graduated from Shepherd University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and received my Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist through Shenandoah University. Instilling a love of reading in children is my passion!!
This is my 3rd year as a Reading Specialist. Prior to becoming a Reading Specialist, I taught 1st Grade for 5 years, 4 years in Frederick County, Va and 1 year in Loudoun County.
My husband and I live in West Virginia. We love the mountains! In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling, and anything outdoors. Some of my favorite hobbies are: kayaking, fishing, hammock camping, disc golfing, hiking, and Geocaching. I am looking forward to another GREAT year working with the students and families of Frederick Douglass!
