Loudoun County Public Schools
Teacher Appreciation Week 2020 is one unlike any other. Loudoun County Public Schools Teachers are not in their classrooms right now, yet their contributions to our community have never been more important. Their virtual work to provide continuity of learning and social-emotional support for students is helping families through one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history. We invite families to email their teachers this week with messages of encouragement and thanks.
For the fifth year, the Virginia Lottery is encouraging students, parents and the general public to send thank-you notes to Virginia's deserving public school teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4 – 8. With both students and teachers working hard from home, now's your chance to send a digital thank-you note to show your appreciation. Your favorite teacher could win a Virginia vacation and prizes for your school! Visit https://thankateacherva.com/ to participate.
Recognition for this year’s Loudoun County Teacher of the Year nominees has been postponed due to COVID-19, so we are using Teacher Appreciation Week to highlight the outstanding work done by these nominees.
Michelle Amend, Little River Elementary, Kindergarten Teacher
“Mrs. Amend has had a wide range of experiences with parents and in a multitude of different types of meetings and educational needs. She has served as the team leader for kindergarten for a number of years, the health and wellness ambassador for the school, organizer of the Kindergarten Orientation, the advisor for the Teacher Cadet program (student teachers), and finally as a valued member of our school community. She has the ability to smile through tough conversations, hold fast to the educational principles being presented that are based on data, and to comfort parents to understand the process and needs for the student. Mrs. Amend is consistently student focused – dedicated to doing ‘whatever it takes’ to best assist, support, and encourage all of her students.”—Kevin Murphy, Principal
Scot Braun, Belmont Ridge Middle School, Civics Teacher
“Mr. Scot Braun is an asset to the Belmont Ridge school community. His biggest contribution to the school is his ability to build strong and lasting relationships with everyone he works with. Whether it is with his peers collaborating on lesson design or professional development, or with his students in and outside of his classroom, Mr. Braun lives a life which is dedicated to the people he interacts with. Mr. Braun cares about people and his lasting legacy is to leave a trail of good experiences and good memories wherever he goes and with whomever he meets.”—Felicia Lewis, Dean
David Stephenson, Farmwell Station Middle School, Business Education Teacher
“David Stephenson is one of those teachers that epitomizes what we want from all teachers. He inspires his students through building relationships with them that make school relevant and enjoyable. In our school he teaches every single student in his keyboarding class at one time or another. As a result, students talk to him daily as they walk through the halls whether they have class with him or not. He provides opportunities for students to connect with the real world in his Young Entrepreneur’s Club and through additional activities after school such as Shark Tank contestants presenting their ideas to local business judges. He makes learning meaningful and exciting! “—Sherryl Loya, Principal
Steven Bills, Stone Bridge High School, English Teacher
“Mr. Bills is a leader in education due to his superior content knowledge and his dedication to his students. Writing is thinking and the students that he serves all demonstrate their thinking with their amazing writing ability. Mr. Bills has led the Stone Bridge Writing Center to be one of the leading writing centers at the high school level in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our students are highly prepared for the rigor of college writing because of the excellent work of Mr. Bills.”—Timothy Flynn, Principal
Megan O’Brien, Brambleton Middle School, Social Science and Global Studies Teacher
”Ms. O’Brien is an innovative teacher who is grounded in providing her students with authentic opportunities to interact with the Civics curriculum. She has led school wide service-learning activities to embed the importance of service into our students’ lives. She led this work by creating service-learning opportunities for 1500 students throughout Northern Virginia. Students worked with Arlington Cemetery, Boulder Crest Retreat, nursing homes, and our very own Brambleton Community. She is a collaborator, creator, critical thinker, contributor, and communicator in all aspects of her professional journey. As a teacher leader, she navigates change in her department with grace and a collaborative spirit.”—Renee Dawson, Principal
Tara Ballenger, Emerick Elementary, Second Grade Teacher
“Ms. Tara Ballenger inspires dreamers to become doers. She comes to school each day with the best attitude and loves each student that walks through her doors. She finds the best in each child and makes them feel loved. Her creativity leads to excitement in her classroom daily. She is a true gift to education.”—Dawn Haddock, Principal
