Mr. Terry McCauley
Mission Statement: At Potomac Falls, we value building relationships, working hard, and making connections to ensure students are life, college, and career ready.
Hello everyone! My name is Mr. Terry McCauley and I am very excited that this is my first year at Potomac Falls High School! I am originally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and attended Virginia Tech from 2005 to 2012. During those amazing years in Blacksburg, I received my Bachelor's degree in History and my Master's in Secondary History and Social Science Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. This will be my 12th year teaching, all in Loudoun County Public Schools. Previously, I spent the past 11 years at Loudoun County High School teaching every level of World History in 9th and 10th grade from Academic World History I to AP World History.
I'm an avid sports fan and love all things related to Philadelphia sports (GO PHILLIES and EAGLES especially). I currently live in Leesburg with my wife of 10 years, our son who will be starting kindergarten this year, our daughter who was born in April, and our cat. This year I will continue teaching World History I and World History II. You can find my schedule by clicking on the link on the left sidebar.
If you have any questions/comments/concerns, email me Terry.McCauley@lcps.org. I will respond within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.

In addition to the guidelines in the Student’s Rights and Responsibilities handbook and other school policies, students are expected to demonstrate respect, academic responsibility, and honesty.
Potomac Falls promotes a school culture of personal responsibility and respectful habits. We feel these skills/ethics will benefit all students in all environments (family, work, school, career). We expect students to develop and maintain life and workplace readiness habits by arriving on time to school and classes, remaining in school for their full day, and maximizing effort and productivity in the classroom.
As members of the PFHS community, we are responsible for upholding and contributing to an atmosphere of respect, truthfulness, and integrity. Our Honor Code states, “On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this test, quiz, assignment, lab, or any other student-generated work.”
We embrace responsible use of technology that provides deeper, more authentic, and more personalized learning experiences. Electronic devices, such as smart phones, laptops and tablets enhance, not replace, teaching and learning. When using technology in the classroom, students are expected to follow the teacher’s expectations and directions. We expect all Panthers to be Ready, Responsible and Respectful with their personal use of technology while at school and to be aware of its impact on self and others.
