Mrs. Katherine Chwirut is so pleased to be the new primary ESOL teacher at Braddock Elementary School. She grew up in Annandale, attending Annandale Terrace, Poe Middle School, and Annandale High School. Her first teaching position was as a third-grade teacher at Brookfield Elementary in Chantilly. Later, she decided to combine her two loves of teaching and travel by working overseas in Germany at Leipzig International School. She extended her time abroad by obtaining a position as a third grade teacher in China at the American International School of Guangzhou. After seven years out of the country, she returned to the USA to start her family. She is the proud mother of a one year old girl and a soon-to-be three year old boy. She spends her free time going to parks and other family-friendly outdoor spaces with her husband and two children.
Mrs. Chwirut holds a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Virginia Commonwealth University. She is endorsed in Elementary Education:PreK-6 and English as a Second Language: PreK-12. She would like to note that her name is easier to say than it looks. It is pronounced Cure-It. She sincerely looks forward to working with the students and families of Braddock this year.
