Third Grade Team

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.

My name is Kayla, and I am so excited to start my third year at Nottingham! I grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and moved to Arlington in 2020. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for my undergraduate degree and for my Master’s in Elementary Education. Go Heels! I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends, and read lots of books. I am thrilled to meet everyone and get started learning!

Hi! My name is Anna (Annie) Ryan, and I am really looking forward to 3rd grade at Nottingham Elementary this year. I am from Richmond, VA, and just moved to Arlington. I graduated from the University of Virginia in May, and I am a soon-to-be double-hoo as I started my master’s degree this summer in Curriculum & Instruction. In my free time, I love spending time with friends and family and exploring the Arlington area!

I started teaching at Nottingham at the start of the 2019 school year, after a 12-year hiatus as a stay-at-home. Prior to that, I provided special education support in kindergarten at McKinley Elementary School and then taught 6th-8th graders in the Life Skills program at Swanson Middle School. I have an undergraduate degree in Family/Child Development & Psychology from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and a Masters in Special Education from George Mason University. Teaching is my second career, after having worked as a social worker serving adults with intellectual disabilities in the City of Alexandria for over five years. My hobbies include cooking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. I live in Arlington with my husband, our two kids, and our adorable, fluffy mini goldendoodle. I love being part of the Nottingham team!
