Meet the First Grade Team!

Mrs. Duray
I grew up in western Pennsylvania and moved to Northern Virginia in 1989.  I graduated from Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana with a degree in elementary education.  I taught Early Childhood in Arlington and Fairfax Counties before moving to Loudoun County Schools.  I am very excited to return to first grade for the upcoming school year.  I live in Potomac Station with my husband Adam.  In my spare time I enjoy shopping, taking walks and visiting family in Pennsylvania.

I graduated from Youngstown State University with a degree in Elementary Education.  My elementary teaching includes first, second, sixth and seventh grades.  I live in Leesburg with my husband, Larry.  My oldest son Brett lives and works in Charleston, South Carolina.  My son Nathan, graduated from Radford University. He lives in Sterling, Virginia. My daughter, Lauren, graduated from Virginia Tech University and now lives in Charleston, South Carolina with her husband, Paul Shockley.  Some of my favorite activities include exercising, reading, cheering for the Hokies, and visiting family in Ohio, North Carolina, and South Carolina!  I am looking forward to another great year with my first graders!

Mrs. Morsink
I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I began my college experience and attended James Madison University in the fall of 2003.  While pursuing my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education, I was a student-athlete and a four-year member of the JMU women's lacrosse team.  In May 2008, I graduated from JMU with a Master of Arts in Teaching degree.  In May 2014, I earned my second Master's degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Shenandoah University.  This August my husband and I are looking forward to welcoming our first son.  During my free time, I enjoy reading, relaxing on the beach, playing and watching sports, and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to working with your children to make this an exciting and memorable year in 1st grade! ​

Mrs. Masternick 

I grew up in Pittsburgh and moved to Ashburn in 2003.  I graduated from John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught second grade for two years in Cleveland, first grade for two years at Sanders Corner, and served as the Reading Specialist and gifted education teacher in Salem, Ohio for four years. I was previously the reading specialist at Belmont Station. I have my Master’s degree in Reading from Youngstown State University and am currently working towards my Gifted certification. I have twin girls who are eight years old. My husband and I enjoy long runs, trips to Avalon beach, and spending quality time with our girls. My goal for this year is to help your children develop a love of learning that will provide them with endless opportunities throughout their academic career… and beyond!

I grew up in nearby Warrenton, Virginia. I graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Elementary Education and finished my graduate program at JMU with a Master of Arts in Teaching in 2007. Go Dukes! My first love is the water and I enjoy any activity that takes place at the pool or on the lake. I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, my son, Landon, and friends. I am looking forward to another wonderful year with the very BeST first graders!
