Third Grade Team

An overview of third grade at Nottingham is below, or click here to learn more about the grade 3 teachers!

Students in this grade are issued an APS-owned Apple iPad as a tool for their personalized learning – click here for more information on this initiative.

We believe that all children can learn and be successful. Each child is an individual and should be provided the opportunity to an environment to learn at his or her own pace. We believe that each child should be given the opportunity to develop his or her best potential mentally, physically, and socially so he or she can become a productive, creative, and responsible member of society. In 3rd grade, we encourage the development of responsibility, independence, and autonomy.

Students will be occupied in a variety of individual and collaborative work designed to accommodate their diverse and individual learning styles. The third-grade curriculum will combine basic skills, authentic learning, and critical thinking.

Grade 3 Teachers

Ms. Brandt

Hi there! My name is Shannon, and I am so excited to be joining Nottingham this year! This will be my 6th year teaching. I previously taught first grade for 5 years in Fairfax County. I received both my undergraduate and master’s degree from Christopher Newport University. I grew up close by in Manassas, VA, and love being so close to home. I love the beach, traveling, hiking, soaking up the sun, practicing yoga, and spending time with my husband (Brendan), family, and friends. I can’t wait to meet everyone and become a part of the Nottingham community. I look forward to a great year!

Hi everyone! My name is Teresa Foeckler (pronounced “Fek-ler”) and I am so excited to be joining the Nottingham team as one of your third grade teachers! I earned my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas where I student taught in a 2nd grade classroom and earned my first teaching license. After college, I moved to Los Angeles, obtained a California teaching license, and taught Kindergarten for three years while working on a Master’s degree in Reading Instruction/Chid and Adolescent Literacy at Loyola Marymount University. After three years on the West Coast, I decided to move back home to the East Coast to be near my family and I now live in Arlington, VA. As soon as I moved back I accepted a job teaching 5th grade in Arlington County and stayed in that position for two years before moving to 3rd Grade here at Nottingham.
