Mrs. Hallett has taught for many years in the elementary school setting first at Countryside Elementary and then at Little River Elementary. This year, she decided to move to the middle school setting in Sterling, Virginia. She is teaching English 8 and Civics at Sterling Middle School, a school she truly loves and calls, “home”.
After college, Mrs. Hallett worked in Corporate America, but being a teacher was always her dream. So she said goodbye to the corporate world and joined the teaching world. Her basic teaching philosophy stems from the belief that children learn through engaging, hands-on, and fun, interactive activities. They are most successful when they have a teacher that connects with them, believes they can do anything and empowers them to believe the same thing.
When Mrs. Hallett is not teaching, she is spending time with her wonderful husband, two older sons and her youngest baby, Charlie, a 3-year old loveable black lab. She loves to read, go to art museums, garden and visit her family back in Chicago! Please do not hesitate to email her at Chris.Hallett@lcps.org or call the main school number (571) 434-4520 and leave her a message.
