Tania grew up in Loudoun County and graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in Communications.  She spent 12 years in the corporate world where training company and client employees was one of her main responsibilities. When her children were born in 2002 and 2005, she decided to take a break from the corporate world to be a stay-at-home mom. When she returned to the workforce, she realized that while she had enjoyed the teaching aspect of her previous jobs, teaching children rather than adults would be a better fit to her nurturing nature. She initially became a substitute teacher for Loudoun County Public Schools, then in 2014 she became a substitute teacher at LCDS. In 2016, LCDS offered her the Preschool Assistant position. She was thrilled to follow in the footsteps of her mother, who was also a preschool teacher. Tania enjoys reading, spending time with her husband, their children Kelli and Jack, and their 2 cats. Her family loves lake life, the beach, snow skiing, and the Washington Capitals.
