Ms. Minna Charland
Hello and welcome to those of you who are joining or returning to our Shark community! My name is Minna Charland and I teach the Early Childhood Special Education Two-Year old program (ECSE-2). This is my 6th year in ECSE preschool and having the opportunity to support and work with our youngest learners is truly a passion of mine. I graduated from George Mason University with a B.A in Psychology and Child Development and then went on to obtain my Masters in Special Education from University of Lynchburg. I am a Loudoun County graduate and was born and raised in Northern Virginia, so it is my pleasure to be able to continue to give back to the community that raised me!
I work alongside my partner, Beth Howard, to create an environment filled with compassionate student-teacher relationships, safety, and individualized intervention to build and strengthen foundational developmental skills.
