It is with great pleasure and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Legacy Elementary School. I have worked in the field of elementary education for the last sixteen years.
My most recent role as an Assistant Principal at Hillside Elementary has provided me with invaluable administrative experience. It gave me the tools, capability, and necessary training to step into the role of Principal at Legacy Elementary School. Prior to serving as Assistant Principal of Hillside Elementary, I served Loudoun County as an Administrative Intern, Reading Specialist, and Teacher for over eight years. I have worked as a Summer School Principal for various Loudoun County elementary schools for 4 years of that time. I started my career in education teaching full-‐day kindergarten and second grade for Fairfax County Public Schools.
I realize that this community is an incredible place and I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve you as your new principal.
I look forward to meeting each of you and partnering with you to ensure your child’s elementary school experience is a success. I hope that everyone enjoys the rest of the summer break.
Matt Dickersheid, M.Ed.
