Early Childhood Lead Teacher (Fireflies)
B.S., Human Services, Old Dominion University
Waleska McGlone joined the Congressional School family in 2019 as a lead teacher in our Early Childhood program. Waleska graduated from Old Dominion University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Services. She worked with adults with intellectual disabilities and subsequently as a special education teacher assistant before transitioning to teaching special education in 2016. Waleska taught for two years in Suffolk, VA as a kindergarten co-teacher and most recently taught special education for grades pre-K3 through 1st grade at a charter school in DC.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband, Desmond (current Congressional middle school math teacher), and puppy Apollo, cooking/baking, traveling, and swimming.
"In addition to the “ah-ha” moments, the laughter, and the growth of both the students and myself every year, I love teaching because of the relationships I build with both my students and their parents/guardians; authentic relationships are what I cherish the most!"
