Hi, my name is Christy Banks. I am thrilled to be a reading specialist here at Liberty Elementary! This is a wonderful school community, and I consider myself lucky to be a part of it. This year marks my 23rd year as a teacher. I taught first grade here at Liberty for five years before transitioning into the role of reading specialist. Prior to my time in Loudoun County, I taught in Bedford County, VA. I attended Radford University where I received my Bachelor's degree. In 2010, I graduated from the University of Virginia with my Master's degree in reading. My husband and I are the proud parents of four amazing kids. Our oldest son is a high school senior this year, our daughter is a sophmore, we have a son in seventh grade, and our youngest son is in sixth grade. We have two German shepherds, Kai and Belle, along with a shih tzu named Molly. Our household is a busy one, but we wouldn't have it any other way!
