Hello, my name is Chitra Kaushik. I have been a proud Algonkian Bobcat since 2005! The 2023-24 school year will be my 19th year with LCPS. I started teaching in India right after finishing college, and followed the same career in the States too. I hold a Masters degree in English Literature from M.D. University, India, and a graduate certificate in teaching Children with Autism from GMU. I live in Ashburn with my family. I enjoy dancing and listening to music. 2023-24 will be my 15th year as a lead teacher of the 3-5 Autism program at Algonkian Elementary. I am looking forward to having another great year as a BOBCAT!
