She attended school in Loudoun County as a child, and then continued her education at James Madison University. GO DUKES! She studied Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies with a concentration in humanities, social science, and science, as well as history and elementary education. She also received her Masters of Arts in Teaching from JMU. For the past few years she has been teaching third grade in another LCPS school and she LOVES 3rd grade! Outside of school, she enjoys traveling, reading, exercising, and spending time with family, friends, and her dogs, Eli and Toby.

We are extremely excited to welcome Marissa Midgley to Discovery. She graduated from Radford Univ. with a degree in Recreation and Tourism and a M.Ed in Special Education from George Mason University. We can't wait to start the school year with her on board!

We are excited to have Ms. Elsbernd join Discovery as one of our school counselors. Ms. Elsbernd grew up in Loudoun County and she is now lucky enough to work for LCPS. She enjoys spending her time with her Corgi, Crumpet or digging in the sand at the beach! Welcome Aboard!

We are ecstatic to welcome Ms. Hoeffel to Discovery’s 3rd grade team. She has taught in Loudoun County since 2014 and recently in Kindergarten, first, and second grade. Mrs. Hoeffel is a graduate of Stone Bridge High School and a Loudoun County native. She attended Christopher Newport University for both her undergraduate degree in psychology and master's degree in teaching. Mrs. Hoeffel lives in Leesburg with her husband and two dogs, Lucy and Autumn. In her free time she enjoys reading, drinking coffee, and walking her two dogs. She considers herself a life-long learner and believes in building strong relationships with students and their families. We are confident it will be an amazing year!!

We are so excited Mrs. O’Shaughnessy is returning to Discovery after a 2 year hiatus in Florida, and she is thrilled to return to the Trailblazer family for the 2020-2021 school year! While in Florida Mrs. O’Shaughnessy and her family took advantage of living miles from the beach, being an hour from Universal Studios, and were able to camp in the Florida Keys each January!
She has been teaching since 2003 in many different roles. She has taught both general education and special education in grades ranging from preschool to 2nd grade. Mrs. O’Shaughnessy graduated from Radford University with an Early Childhood Special Education/ Early Childhood Education degree. In 2015, she completed her Masters degree in Curriculum & Instruction. Mrs. O’Shaughnessy has two children, a rising 10th grader at Broad Run and a rising 6th grader at Farmwell. The family wouldn’t be complete without their dog Jonny, whom they adopted while in Florida. Mrs. O’Shaughnessy is an avid runner and enjoys going on camping trips, sports, festivals, and the beach.

Hi Trailblazers! Our amazing and generous technology teacher Mrs Smith, has been spending her quarantine time making face shields for local health care workers. She has teamed up with a couple of other schools and they have been using 3-D printers to make these life saving face shields.

If you would like to help with this project, she is asking for you to write a thank you note, draw a picture, or just send words of encouragement. Attached below you will find a flyer with six different drop off locations in our neighborhoods. Look for a plastic tub marked “Health Care notes”. You can leave them with no contact and they will then be added to each face shield package.

Loudoun County Public Schools

Three Loudoun County Public Schools instructional facilitators of technology (IFTs), working on their own time, are using their schools’ 3D printers to produce face shields for healthcare workers, nursing homes and frontline workers.

The idea originally came to Peggy Tyree, the IFT at Belmont Station Elementary, from a school parent, Mike Werling. Werling is involved in Loudoun’s Makersmiths project to produce shields. He approached Tyree to see if the school’s printers were available, and if she might want to get involved.

Tyree’s intention was to join the Makersmiths group, but orders began pouring in from local organizations needing shields. “My phone just began ringing after I posted my prototype on Facebook. I never dreamed how much PPE (personal protective equipment) was needed in our community and how little was available.”

Hello Trailblazer Families: My colleague Peggy Tyree (also an IFT) and I have been working around the clock printing face shields for local health care workers. Due to an incredible response for the shields, Peggy has set up a GoFundMe page. As of this evening, our goal has been reached of $5,000 to purchase additional 3D printers and supplies to continue to make the face shields for our heroes.
Earlier today, Peggy and I had an emotional delivery of providing face shields to GW nurses on the COVID floor and also to an assisted living facility.
We will continue to accept donations on the GoFund Me page listed

Well, I am truly saddened... my heart hurts because I will not be able to give out free meals to those in need. Due to the current situation we were asked to not hold the event and trust me, it’s way above our heads, but that shows the amazing outpouring of help y’all gave and were going to give. I need to go for a walk to get over how I feel right now, but know that when this all is over, I will be planning an amazing event to giveaway free Red’s BBQ & Pizza. But, we will have to wait and I have to find out what to do with hundreds of pounds of meat. Thank you so much... from the bottom of my heart, y’all moved me to wanna do all I could! We made a difference, that I can promise you... my amazing hosts, Chefscape and Village at Leesburg... My promise to the community is when we are able to celebrate life in public again... I will be there waiting for you. -Red 😔
