Sarah LoredoGreeting Raven parents. I am Mrs. Loredo. I have been at Frances Hazel Reid since the school year 2008-2009. Since I came to work at this school, much change has happened. I was the only ELL teacher, covering grades K-ELL to 5th for 5 years. Then I worked exclusively with K-ELL, and this year I worked with the Newcomers. Prior to coming to work at FHR, I was a Guilford Gator for five years. Before that, I was a Spartan at Broad Run High School for five years as well. I graduated from Shenandoah University in 2012 with a Masters in the Science of Teaching Reading. I obtained my undergraduate and ELL Certification at George Mason University (1987/2003). I am looking forward to the school year 2017/2018 to co-teaching and working with the fifth grade ELL students. I am blessed and proud to be the mother of three beautiful daughters, and grandmother of two adorable kids. My husband and I reside in Leesburg, where in my spare time, I work on my vegetable and my bee gardens. We are highly active at our local church, where I help with interpreting and translating books into Spanish. Have an amazing summer break!Hannah HillMrs. Hill is excited to begin her second year here at FHR as an ELL teacher. She holds a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, as well as a certification in ESOL. She taught both 2nd and 3rd grade in Alabama after graduating, and as a fourth grade teacher, she most recently taught for two years in Pasco County, Florida. Although she misses being a classroom teacher, she continues to be excited about the unique opportunity to focus on ELL students here in Loudoun County. She got married last year to her husband Jordon and they relocated to Ashburn, VA a few months later. She enjoys being closer to family, cheering on her WashingtonNationals, and being a Reid Raven!Lily LindquistYen WharenMs. Yen was born in Vietnam, but grew up in Houston, Texas. While working on her MA in education, she was a science lab and remedial reading teacher in Houston for five years. Ms. Yen then moved to DC where she served as an instructional coach for eight years. During this time, she attended The George Washington University and earned her Ed.S. in Curriculum and Instruction. She has also received teaching grants and fellowships that have led her around the world. This fall, she is over the moon about joining the FHR team as an ELL teacher and serving the students of her community.
Jennifer Thompson holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from the State University of New York at Geneseo and a Master of Science in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the State University of New York at Albany. This will be her twelfth year teaching English Language Learners. She taught ELL in North Carolina for one year and then came to Virginia, where she worked for Fairfax County Public Schools before joining Loudoun County. Helping students reach their full potential is Ms. Thompson’s passion and she is looking forward to a wonderful year at Frances Hazel Reid Elementary School.
