Mrs. Kittrell has been a gifted specialist in Loudoun County Public Schools for 10 years. She has taught both the SEARCH (K-3) and FUTURA (4-5) gifted programs and is excited to provide challenges and enrichment to the students at the middle school level. In addition to being a gifted specialist for 10 years, Mrs. Kittrell also taught 3rd - 6th grades and worked as a Math Consultant in Jersey City Schools. She earned a Bachelor's of Science in Education Degree at Clarion University of Pennsylvania and a Gifted endorsement from University of Virginia and Shenandoah University. This year marks 22 years of teaching experience for Mrs. Kittrell.
Mrs. Kittrell embraces life-long and engaged learning. She believes that students get excited and retain more with real-life/authentic and hands-on learning experiences. Most recently, Mrs. Kittrell completed a crash course on coding and robotics (Robot C) and taught the 2014 NOVA Summer Robotics Camp at Tuscarora HS and Signal Hill Campus. The interest in robotics came from her FUTURA students during this past school year.
In her free time, Mrs. Kittrell enjoys taking long brisk walks with her husband and 3 dogs, knitting, and spinning alpaca fiber from her beautiful herd of alpacas in Lovettsville.
