I graduated from Radford University in VA with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. Being a graduate of LCPS, I am honored to be returning as a teacher for both LCPS and the BeST school. A few of my hobbies that I enjoy in my spare time are playing and watching sports, traveling, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends. As this school year begins, I am looking forward to another amazing year at Belmont Station.

I am grateful to be teaching second grade at Belmont Station. After graduating from Virginia Tech, I taught for several years in Fairfax and Loudoun County. I had the privilege of opening Sanders Corner Elementary. My career took a detour while I stayed home to raise my children. During that time I began various reading programs involving local children. Today I'm a long time resident of Belmont Greene. I am married to my highschool sweetheart from Oakton High and together we have four fabulous children: Hannah, Abby, Mary Kate and Cole. In my not so spare time, I love to catch up with friends, read, exercise, bike with my family, and cook. I'm thrilled to nurture my passion of teaching children.
This is my 9th year teaching 2nd grade in Loudoun County, and I am very excited to start my third year here at Belmont Station. I graduated from Shippensburg University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and a Minor in Reading. I also have my Master's Degree in Special Education. I believe that each student is a unique individual with specific strengths and talents. It is my goal as a teacher to identify and foster those strengths while at the same time encouraging a love for learning. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, creating art and traveling to new places.
I am excited to be part of the 2nd grade team here at Belmont Station. Before moving to Ashburn, I lived in a small town in northern Pennsylvania called Wellsboro. While growing up, I enjoyed hiking, playing sports, skiing, and taking care of my animals. One of my favorite things to do in my free time is travel. I have traveled as far south as Venezuela. I have a wonderful family who has always been very supportive. I graduated from Mansfield University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education/Special Education. After graduation I taught 5th grade in Pennsylvania. I am looking forward to another great year here at Belmont Station!
I am very excited to be working as a teacher this year in 2nd grade. I am a graduate of James Madison University and Loudoun County Public Schools. I have worked in the county for 5 years and also coach Girls Soccer at Park View High School. In my spare time I enjoy exercising, reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I live in Sterling with my miniature potbellied pig, Bacon. I look forward to another great year at Belmont Station!
Erin Savage I am one of the original staff members of Belmont Station in 2004 and am thrilled to be supporting the first and second grade teams this year. I graduated from George Mason University with a BIS degree in Assistive Technology in Special Education and am excited to have the opportunity to provide students with the skills to be successful independent learners. My husband and I are from New York and have two grown sons. We love to travel, play golf and enjoy all that the Washington, DC area has to offer.
I am originally from Beavercreek, Ohio. I attended Ohio University for my undergrad and graduate degree in Special Education. I have spent the past 8 years teaching Preschool Special Education in Ohio and Montgomery County, MD. Currently, I reside in Ashburn with my husband and dog, Dakota. Some of my hobbies include running races, cycling, traveling all over the world, cooking, and most importantly reading! I am extremely excited to work as the Second grade Resource Teacher.
