My name is Lori Palmer and I am beginning my eleventh year as a gifted resource teacher in LCPS. I previously served as a SEARCH and FUTURA teacher at numerous schools in Loudoun County Public Schools, most recently for two years at Rosa Lee Carter Elementary where I was honored to be a member of the 'First Flock' at Cardinal tasked with launching a new learning community.
This year I will be the SEARCH teacher for Ashburn and Sanders Corner Elementary Schools. I am excited to begin a new adventure much closer home!.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Physical Education with a science endorsement from David Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, a gifted endorsement from the University of Virginia and a MEd from Liberty University in Teaching/Learning with a gifted education emphasis. I expect to complete graduate course work for certification in School Leadership in May 2017. Prior to moving to Loudoun County in 2006, I spent 18 years moving with my husband and two sons to various military assignments in eight different states. I have worked in many public and Department of Defense schools as well as home-schooled my children during that time.
My husband and I have two boys, both very proud Stone Bridge High School graduates….Go Bulldogs! When not traveling to visit family, we spend lots of time outdoors, at the gym, antique shopping, playing with our two dogs or attempting some type of challenging mud run!
I am certainly looking forward to getting to know the fantastic Ashburn and Sanders Corner families
