Hello, my name is JoAnn Kowalski.This is my fifth year in Loudoun County,
but my 31st year of teaching. I was a reading teacher for eight years in a western suburb of Illinois. I attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois for my Bachelors degree. I obtained my Master's degree from Northern Illinois University. I eagerly look forward to working with Liberty Elementary School teachers and eagles. Presently I live in Berryville, VA with my husband, one weimaraner and three horses. Our new grandbabies, Auggie and Isaac, prompted our move here. In addition to teaching I enjoy trail riding, quilting and spending time with my family.
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! My name is Jennifer Heidary and I am one of the reading specialists here at Liberty. This will be my third year here at Liberty. I previously taught in Loudoun County at Cedar Lane Elementary back in 2002 as a special education teacher for two years and at Brentsville Middle/High School in Prince William County for five years. I earned my post-graduate degree in reading from George Mason University, as well as, my graduate degree in special education. My undergraduate degree is in special education from Lock Haven University. I live in Ashburn, with my husband and two boys, ages eight and ten. When I am not at Liberty I enjoy reading, exercising and spending time with my family. I am looking forward to working with the Liberty students, parents and staff this coming school year.
