Jennifer O'Reilly knew that she would be a music teacher since she was nine years old. Her love of school, singing, dancing, playing the French horn, and acting has always been a part of her life. She is currently in her 27th year of teaching elementary music in Loudoun County, having opened the music room doors of Arcola 17 years ago. She received her Bachelors in Music Education from West Chester University, her Masters in Administration from the University of Phoenix, and her Orff-Schulwerk and Kodaly certification from George Mason University.
When Ms. O'Reilly is not teaching music, you can find her teaching dance (ballet, tap, musical theatre) at Rhythm & Arts Center of Virginia, as well as directing & choreographing for the children's theatre ensemble, the Stone Springs Showmakers. She is an active member of the Arcola United Methodist Church Music Ministry, singing in the choir, playing handbells, playing French horn, and directing & choreographing the Elevation Dance Ensemble as well as children's & youth musicals.
During her offstage time, you can find Jennifer spreading pixie dust in her favorite place, Walt Disney World! She is a HUGE Disney fan, and she travels often to make memories with her three beautiful daughters. You will also see her walking around Arcola with her 3 adorably cute (and incredibly loud) beagles, Bentley, Bonnie, & Baeleigh.
