Our 18 month old daughter’s elbow was dislocated by her teacher at Merritt Academy in a horrific act that they defend as age appropriate disciplinary action. My daughter’s teacher lifted her by her forearm from a seated position to a standing position, dislocating her elbow immediately and causing her agonizing pain. We were called (nearly 2 hrs later) to come pick her up and take her to the ER, where she had to have her elbow reset (a painful procedure). We know exactly what happened because there is video surveillance. The Department of Social Services investigated, cited Merritt for 3 violations, and provided details of their investigation in their report. Their findings against Merritt are public info:
Thank God for cameras or we never would known what actually happened. As of the date of this post, the teacher is still the lead teacher in the same classroom.

Leah is a one of a kind. Every single time I see her, it is a guarantee that I will have a good laugh & walk away with a big, big smile.
Between balancing multiple part-time jobs, being a volunteer EMT at the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department for 6 years now!), & taking graduate school classes at George Mason University, Leah leads quite a busy life.
At the moment, Leah is a supervisor for the GMU’s Office of Annual Giving's Call Center, an Athletic Instructor at Merritt Academy & a Barre-tender at Pure Barre Vienna (hopefully a soon to be instructor!).
Recently, Leah registered for her last semester of graduate school. In the Spring, she will receive her Masters of Public Health—which she can add-on to her Bachelor's in Community Health (minors in Psych & Biology). She insists that this will not be the end of learning for her. She hopes to (one day) get her PhD, & possibly go to PA School.
(Sidenote: If you know Leah in-real-life, you know that she will openly talk about subjects that one might be bashful to talk about—sex, mental health, etc. Leah truly believes these are important topics that should be openly discussed. Because she is willing to “go there” with others, GMU has made her a TA for Global & Community Health.)
Now, what I didn’t know about Leah until I approached her to be my weekly winner (which proves she doesn’t let her disease define her!)... although she is constantly out-and-about and very much involved with the community, Leah has a chronic illness — Dysautonomia: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).
Those living with this disorder have been said to have the same quality of life as people with congestive heart failure. It takes a lot of motivation, rehabilitation & medications to perform daily tasks (sometimes, simple things like bathing can be an exhausting task).
Although her condition is not near where it was a few years ago, she does occasionally suffer from issues such as dizziness/nausea/fatigue/weakness. However, she’s learned that the best way to tackle this disorder is by always having a positive outlook on life and to not let it control your life. She challenges herself everyday by just getting out of bed & everything beyond that is an accomplishment!
Leah is an inspiration. She works hard, stays strong, & proves that the sky is the limit.
When she’s not being the ultimate cool-girl-on-the-go, you can find her hanging out with her grandparents (she proudly states all four of them are her very best friends) or cuddled up at home with her sweet boyfriend who has got her hooked on Game of Thrones.

Merritt Academy’s annual Spring Fling brought bunches of excitement to our campus community!
Attendees of all ages enjoyed activities such as face painting, balloon art, pony rides, & so much more. Thank you to the Merritt Academy PTO for organizing this event & to all the families who attended!
Amazing, stupendous, fantastic! The Middle School Food Drive was a smashing success.
The students set a goal of collecting 750 food items in a little over a week and not only did they reach their goal, but they surpassed it by collecting 873 food items! When donated to Food for Others the donations weighed in at a whopping 982 pounds! The middle school students worked very hard for this food drive to be a success, but they could not have surpassed their goal without the generosity of Merritt's parents, staff and involvement of all of the students.
What a great service project to end the school year and give back to our community!
All aboard! 🚂
Did you know that Merritt Academy’s campus has a red caboose!? K2 students had a blast learning all about magnets, force & motion inside the caboose for a special STEM lesson last week!
7th and 8th Grade students took a bite out of the Big Apple on their recent class field trip to NYC. Students visited several iconic landmarks including Central Park, Times Square, Ellis Island & even the United Nations Headquarters! What a trip!

Insects, rocks & towers! Oh my! 🐞🪨
In the story, “Bring Me A Rock”, the insects try to build a tower for King Grasshopper, but it keeps falling down. Our young engineers practiced great perseverance while they investigated the principles of balance & stability to create rock structures for their (pretend) insects just like the insects did in the story!
Inspiration is everywhere! 🎨
