Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sandy Greene
This is my 17th year teaching at Park Ridge. I first walked through the doors of the school in 1992. I began as a parent and the following year became a paraprofessional. With the encouragement and support of my coworkers, I returned to school and in 2000, began my first year as a teacher. I have earned a History degree from Mary Washington, a Masters in Education from ODU and certification as a Math Specialist from UVA. I have 3 sons who have gone through Stafford County schools and are now married. They have blessed me with 4 grandchildren. I love the curiosity and wonder that children bring to our lives and cannot imagine myself doing any other job than this one.
I grew up in a little town in northern NJ, a place I stiil call home. I have crossed the country, living in Alabama, Georgia. California, and North Carolina before finally settling in Virginia. I have been a soccer coach, a classoom volunteer, and a den mother for Cub Scouts. I have learned to adapt to new places, meet new people and tackle the everyday challenges life has thrown my way. These experiences are all part of what I bring into the classroom with me.
