My name is Margaret McNamara, and I am blessed beyond measure to share this year with your child.  Thank you for entrusting your child to my care.

I have been teaching in Catholic schools for twenty-four years.  I graduated from the College of Saint Mary in Omaha, Nebraska with a double major in elementary education and early childhood education in 1991.  I am a teacher consultant with the Northern Virginia Writing Project. I was awarded the Arlington Diocesan Teacher of the Year in 2012 and earned the Unsung Heroes Award for Innovations in Teaching the same year.

I am humbled and honored to share the love of Christ with the families of Saint Thomas Aquinas after twelve years teaching at Holy Cross Academy in Fredericksburg.  I have taught first, third, fourth, and fifth grade as well as middle school in Nebraska, New York and now Virginia.
