Mrs. Susan Weiderhold
We are certainly in a unique situation as we prepare to begin the 2020-2021 academic school year. However, I am confident that we will be able to work together to provide the best possible learning experience for our students. I have heard wonderful things about Hampton Oaks Elementary and I am both honored and excited to become a member of this great school community.
I come to Hampton Oaks with 26 years of educational experience. I began my teaching career in Loudoun County, Virginia as a 5th grade teacher and served in multiple leadership roles during my tenure. I then moved to Spotsylvania County Public Schools when my husband’s profession required a relocation. I taught 4th and 5th grade at the elementary level. During this time, I earned a Mathematics Specialist certification and wanted to gain experience at the middle school level. I continued on my professional journey with Spotsylvania County Schools and taught 6th grade science and 6th through 8th grade math. Four years ago I came to Stafford County and served as the Assistant Principal at Dixon-Smith Middle School.
I am very excited to start this new chapter in my career. I look forward to learning with you and from you while building new relationships with staff, students, families and community members. My goal as your principal is to guide and support our staff and to ensure that our students reach their highest potential in a safe and nurturing environment.
I look forward to a great year ahead of us and being able to meet you all in person!
