My name is Mrs. Williamson. I teach Kindergarten/ESOL at McAuliffe Elementary. I have been teaching for a long time and this is my 6th year teaching in Virginia. I have taught 1st (4 years), 2nd (3 years), 3rd (1 year), 4th (5 years), and 5th (2 years). I have also taught French in both a high school and at a summer immersion program.
I have a BA in French from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL. While I was in college there, I worked at Walt Disney World. That was a lot of fun! I also got to spend 6 months working at Disneyland Paris as a part of their opening crew (way back in 1992!). I also have my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University with an emphasis in early childhood education. I am certified to teach both elementary and ESOL. I love foreign languages and I enjoy learning about new cultures. I have been fortunate enough to have visited 11 different countries and I have lived in both France (Paris) and Canada (Quebec).
Mr. Williamson and I live in Chancellorsville with our 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 children. Heath will be 3 in September and Katie just turned 1. We love spending time in the garden, going for hikes in the woods, doing arts and crafts projects, and playing games. I also love to cook, bake, and scrapbook! We love visiting new places and hope to take a vacation to Arizona this summer. I have lived or visited every state in the USA except OR, WA, AK, and HI....which I hope to see someday!
