Read below to learn more about our newest member of the Lion Nation Teaching TEAM:

He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass: environment is but his looking glass.
James Allen

In 2004 Mason earned a BA in Visual Art/Secondary Education from Shepherd University. In 2015, Mason achieved National Board Certification in Early/Middle Childhood Art as well as a MS in Educational Leadership in 2017.

Interesting Tidbits:

Why teaching?:
Mason chose teaching art as means to stay connected to a creative and expressive lifestyle. Mason believes we are the writer, the pen, and the paper at once; instilling in his students that, as they create, it is they who are the actual work of art.

After 18 years teaching in WV mason is extremely excited to become a creative part of the Cedar Lane Elementary Lion’s family!

Good Monday morning, Lion Nation! I am thrilled to introduce to you a member of our TEAM who really needs no introduction at all, as she has been an incredibly valuable member of our school community throughout my tenure here at Cedar Lane. Mrs. Jenn Thomas has served as our Cedar Lane PTA President and Vice President, she has served as a PALS Tutor in LCPS, Kindergarten Teaching Assistant and a First Grade Teaching Assistant, a dedicated volunteer and now I am honored to introduce her as a First Grade Teacher here at the Lane! Mrs. Thomas has teaching experience both in Fairfax County and Montgomery County, Maryland. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Thomas to our First Grade TEAM!

Below is information to assist our community in getting to know Mrs. Thomas:

Favorite Literature:
Children’s Book: The Giving Tree
Adult Literature: Any books by Nicholas Sparks or Colleen Hoover

Favorite Quote:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

Jennifer grew up in Gaithersburg, MD and attended Gaithersburg High School. She went to college at Towson University and graduated in 1998, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. After graduating college, Jennifer taught 2nd grade for 2 years in Montgomery County and taught 1st grade for 7 years in Fairfax County. After she stopped working full time to stay home with her kids, she tutored elementary students in the evenings. When Jennifer decided to go back to work, she became a PALS tutor at Discovery Elementary for 4 years. She then became a First Grade Assistant at Cedar Lane and last year she was a Kindergarten Assistant at Cedar Lane.

Some Interesting Tidbits:
When Jennifer is not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and all her pets. She especially loves spending time with her husband Jason, and their 4 children, Brooke, Savannah, Kaylee and Colin. Brooke is 20 years old and will be a junior in college at JMU. Savannah is 17 years old and will be a senior in high school at Stone Bridge. Kaylee is 15 years old and will be a sophomore in high school at Stone Bridge. Colin is 14 years old and will be in 8th grade at Trailside Middle School. Jennifer loves animals and has lots of pets at her house. She has 4 dogs, 2 cats, a fish, a turtle and a gecko. The turtle is one that her oldest daughter got when she was a 2nd grader here at Cedar Lane. Jennifer loves to travel and is always up for going anywhere. She is trying to visit all 50 states before she turns 50…she has 10 states left! She loves going to the beach, especially the Outer Banks. Jennifer also loves football and you will find her cheering on The Stone Bridge Bulldogs on Friday nights and the Washington Commanders on Sundays, as well as on the sidelines for all her kids sporting events. Jennifer also enjoys cooking, reading and taking her dogs on walks.

Why She Wanted to Become a Teacher:
Jennifer has always wanted to be a teacher, from the time she was a child playing school with her dolls. After being in school all day, she would always rush home to copy what her teachers did that day, but with her dolls. Jennifer had so many wonderful teachers growing up that encouraged her to pursue her dreams and gave her the confidence that she could do anything she put her mind to. Seeing the positive influence that educators had on her and other students in her classes made her want to pursue her dream of being a teacher. They played such an important role in her life in so many ways and she wanted to be able to do that same thing for other children. She has always loved children and has enjoyed working with them in many capacities throughout her life from babysitting, VBS at church, summer camps, Sunday School, tutoring, etc. Jennifer knew that she wanted to make an impact in the lives of children and there’s no better way than to teach them and be involved in the learning process. Each day she works with them, she has the potential to make a lasting impression.

Things to Look Forward To:
Jennifer is looking forward to going back to the classroom and teaching first grade this year! First graders have always held a special place in her heart. It is going to be extra special being at Cedar Lane as she will be teaching at the same school as
all 4 of her kids attended from Kindergarten to 5th Grade. Jennifer has been a part of Cedar Lane and the community for the past 16 years in many different roles. As a parent, she was the PTA president and served on the PTA Board for many years while her kids were going to school here. Now that her kids have gotten older and no longer attend Cedar Lane, she is so excited to come back and take on a different role as a teacher. She can’t wait to meet her first graders that will be in her class this year. She is looking forward to getting to know each of her students and building a relationship with them and their families. She loves the excitement, enthusiasm and love for learning that first graders have. She is so excited to provide meaningful learning opportunities which engage the students in lots of fun and creative hands-on activities. Jennifer is excited to be able to watch them grow throughout the year. Jennifer is excited to continue working with the Cedar Lane family and first grade team to create a classroom and school environment that values the success of each child.

What an awesome group! Today we welcomed our new TEAM members! They walked the red carpet and we all cheered them on! We are blessed to have a great group, I am super excited to begin our journey together!


Good morning, Lion Nation! Happy Friday! I am excited to introduce you to Mrs. Richelle King! Mrs. King will be joining our TEAM as an English Language Teacher and will be with us half time as she will also be working with students at Belmont Station. Please see below some biographical information on our new EL Teacher:

Favorite Literature
Children’s book: The Jungle Book (when I was a child)
Gerald & Piggie books (now)
Adult literature: suspense & historical fiction

Favorite Quote:
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” John Wooden

Richelle grew up in Indiana, PA and attended high school there. She attended Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA to play basketball and obtained a degree in Psychology and Elementary Education.

Some interesting tidbits
Richelle has two human children and two furry children. Sarah is 21 & attends Florida Gulf Coast University. Luke is 15 & attends Independence High School. She has a dog, Jedi and a cat, Ross. She enjoys walking with her dog, lifting weights and doing yoga. She enjoys being outside as much as possible except when the weather is cold. 🥶 She enjoys spending time with her family, friends & neighbors and watching her son play football & basketball.

Why She Wanted to Become a Teacher
During high school, she always gravitated towards children, finding them amusing, sweet, innocent and endearing. Any chance to volunteer with children was a taken opportunity. All her summer jobs involved children somehow: camps, babysitting, swimming lessons, etc. She began college as a Psychology major only and after taking Educational Psychology was intrigued with how learning takes place. She then added Elementary education as a minor and decided to pursue that career.

Things to look forward to
Richelle Spent 12 years teaching general education: 6 years teaching fourth grade and 6 years teaching third grade. Last year, she decided to take a leap and change what was comfortable to her and become an EL teacher. She worked with first graders and it was a challenge (very welcomed one) to switch her brain from teaching children “reading to learn” to “learning to read.” She is looking forward to continuing this and implementing the new UFLI program & helping her EL students in other content areas and watching them grow and learn throughout the school year. She is looking forward to meeting and building relationships with her colleagues at Cedar Lane.


Good Wednesday afternoon Lion Nation! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this beautiful summer day! I am super excited to introduce you to a new 2nd Grade Teacher here at Cedar Lane, Mrs. Erin McNamara! Mrs. McNamara is not totally new to the Lane, as she served as a Teaching Assistant in our MD program last school year and did a wonderful job! She is also an engaged member of our PTA as she has two outstanding Cedar Lane Lions that attend school with her each day! I am thrilled to have Erin join our instructional TEAM, as she brings great experiences in a variety of roles in education, as well as energy, enthusiasm, and a passion for students and learning! Please take this opportunity to learn a bit more about our wonderful addition to 2nd Grade:

Favorite Literature:
Children’s Book: A Perfectly Messed-Up Story by Patrick McDonnell
Adult Literature: Way too hard to commit to just one!

Favorite Quote: “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.” Dr. Rita Pierson

Education: Erin graduated from Gettysburg College in 2007, with a degree in English and Elementary Education. She also received her Reading Recovery Certification from Lesley University in 2016.

Some Interesting Tidbits: Erin is considered a true Jersey Girl, living and working in New Jersey for most of her life. Her favorite place is Ocean City, New Jersey, where she likes to spend part of her summer with her family.

GO BILLS!

Why She Wanted to Become a Teacher: Erin cannot remember a time in her life when she didn’t want to become a teacher, and that is largely due to all of the amazing educators that she has had in her life. Because of HER teachers growing up, she knows that teaching truly is a vocation, one that has lasting impacts far beyond a school year. Teaching is not just about the content. It’s about hearts and minds and awakening a lifelong love of learning that one can carry with them forever.

Things to Look Forward To: Before moving to Ashburn with her family in 2021, Erin taught in New Jersey for 14 years where she taught 5th grade, 3-4th grade Gifted and Talented, K-2 Reading Recovery and Support, Kindergarten and 1st grade. Last year, she assisted in the Classroom for Multiple Disabilities at Cedar Lane, and she is so excited to be joining the 2nd grade team!

She likes to make learning fun, creative, interactive, and accessible for all of her students. She also enjoys building relationships with her students and their families. She can’t wait to welcome her new crew of 2nd grade Lions!

Mrs. Durkin will be teaching 4th Grade with us here at the Lane and I am thrilled to have her return! Some of you may remember that Mrs. Durkin (then Ms. Powell) previously worked here at the Lane as a 4th Grade Teacher. I know our students, families and staff are going to absolutely LOVE Jamie! Below is some information to help our Lion Nation get to know Mrs. Durkin:

Favorite Literature:

Good Morning Lion Nation!
Two Cedar Lane Lions and Mrs. Bergstrom sharing an amazing experience together yesterday! Former Cedar Lane Lion, Parker Nyhuis (yes, our Mrs. Nyhuis’ firefighting son) visited another Cedar Lane Lion, Gil to speak with him about being a Firefighter. Gil had many curious questions for Parker. We all learned a lot about the challenges and training that our Firefighters endure to keep us safe. It was an awesome experience!

🦁Cedar Lane Lions taking care of each other! 🥰

Good Friday morning Lion Nation! What an awesome close to the school year! It has been busy, but I am so proud of this group and their continued excellence (both teachers and students)! Earlier this week, Mrs. Sharon Zeller received the SEAC (Special Education Advisory Committee) Award for her incredible work with ALL members of her classroom community! I have been blessed to work with Mrs. Zeller now for over a decade and she is so very deserving of the recognition! The love and care that goes into each lesson is truly to be commended! Thank you Mrs. Zeller for all you do each and every year cultivating a classroom community that is inclusive, joyful, and kind. You have had such a positive impact on the students and families you have served, along with the colleagues you collaborate alongside.
Best wishes to Mrs. Zeller and all of our Lion Nation for a safe, restful, and joyful summer. I think Mrs. Zeller and I are both finishing up year 27, so we will rest up and get ready for a year 28! 28 will be great!
