Angie Cross began working at Loudoun Country Day School in 2002. She is a native of the area and was born and raised on a beef cattle farm in Lovettsville. She received her B.S. in Early Childhood Education and MaED in Education, Curriculum, and Instruction from Virginia Tech. During her study there, she was a member of the University Honors Program and wrote the first undergraduate “In-Honors” thesis for the College of Human Resources and Education. She also studied abroad in Italy twice, learning about their approach to early childhood education. Angie still has close contact with the Education Department at VT and assists with research projects each year. On a personal note, she now lives in Leesburg with her husband, Josh, and her two daughters. When there is time (and there really is very little of it), she enjoys attending concerts, photography and rooting for the Hokies during football season!
