Faculty and Staff

Mrs. Connie Spadafore


I am native to Northern Virginia, Lorton area.  I have been a member of Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church all my life.   I believe and support the mission of the Catholic Schools educational and faith-filled teachings. I serve as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion for St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School masses.

I received my Bachelors of Science in Special Education K-12 and General Education from Duquesne University in 1991.  I earned a Master’s degree in Counseling and Development from George Mason University in 1996. I worked in Fairfax County Public Schools, high school and elementary levels in the Special Education field.  I tutored children for 20 years and worked with many different ages and abilities. In 2003-2005, I was the part-time Resource Teacher as Saint Thomas Aquinas Regional School.  Aside from providing academic support to my students, I represented identified students for Special Education services at their base schools. I educated parents and worked with the county schools in order to obtain educational testing, IEP’s, 504 Plans and ultimately educational services.  During my time at Aquinas, I had a wonderful opportunity to become trained as an Irlen Screener.  I have since become a Senior Irlen Screener.  I look forward to educating parents and staff about this syndrome. After having twins, I returned to being a stay at home mom.  During that time at home, I received an endorsement certificate in Autism through James Madison University.  Upon returning to work, I became one of the Options teachers at Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School for 3 years.  Currently, I am the Resource Teacher at Aquinas, happy to be with amazing faith filled community of teachers, staff, parents and students.
