Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tracy P. Sisk
Entering my fourth year as PRES Librarian I wanted to take the opportunity to share a little bit about myself with many of our new and returning parents. Being an Army wife for over 29 years I was fortunate enough to live and visit many places all over the world including Europe. For the past twenty four years I have lived in Stafford County. The last fourteen were spent teaching full time at Park Ridge Elementary in first and second grade classrooms and now the library. This marks my fifteenth year here, and I'm very excited to continue my tenure with Stafford County in the library!
This school holds a very special place in my heart—not only is it a wonderful school full of great colleagues and amazing students, but all three of my children attended here in the past. My younger two actually attended here for their full Elementary school experience, starting as wide-eyed Kindergarteners and graduating from fifth grade moving on to middle school. Such a solid foundation to their educations encouraged all of them to apply themselves not just in the upper grades of education, but to college as well. Presently, my eldest, Jennifer, a very talented artist and novelist lives here in Stafford along with her husband, Adam. My oldest son, Jason, is currently in the U.S. Army and living in North Carolina with his beautiful wife, Kathleen, 8 year old daughter, Juliann and 2 year old son, Keaton. Being my only grandchildren at present, they are the subject of all the photos on the"Grandbabies Wall" in my office. My youngest son, Andrew, graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y five years ago and recently relocated back to Virginia from Colorado to further his education.
As for me, when I am not at the school, furthering the education of the students and encouraging reading, I enjoy collecting Longaberger baskets and antiques, reading, swimming, and spending time with my family. My teaching experience spans the last 35+ years and includes full, part time, and subbing, from Kindergarten thru Fifth grade as well as the Library.
I am looking forward to my fourth year as the PRES Librarian, to seeing old faces and meeting new students. I have many things planned for this upcoming year and have highlighted a few in my welcome letter. As always if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at the school (1-540-658-6320) or through my email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
