I hope your summer break is off to a wonderful start! God has certainly blessed us with glorious weather, making outdoor time a real pleasure.
It is with much excitement that I make the following personnel announcement:
Mrs. Applegate and Mrs. Mann will switch grade levels starting with the 2019-2020 school year. Each of these amazing educators is stepping out of the box and into a new grade, looking to stretch professionally. Additionally, Mrs. Applegate and Mrs. Mann plan to bring a high level of collaboration and dynamic teaching between the two grades levels, including partnering with Mrs. Kohler and Mrs. Keusenkothen, all to benefit our students.
Mrs. Applegate has been teaching for 20 years, with 16 years experience teaching 5th grade. She earned a bachelor’s degree in behavioral and social sciences from the University of Maryland, a master of arts degree in teaching from Johns Hopkins University (MD), and she holds a VA Postgraduate Professional License in elementary education preK-6.
Mrs. Mann has 28 years teaching experience, teaching many different grades levels, spending the last 14 years teaching 4th grade. She earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Wilkes University (PA), and she holds a VA Collegiate Professional License in elementary education preK-6.
Please keep Mrs. Applegate and Mrs. Mann in your prayers as they take on this exciting challenge.
Rejoice and Be Glad!
