Hi Westridge Families!

     My name is Mrs. Roche and I am thrilled to be your kindergarten teacher!  I am lucky enough to be starting my fifteenth year at Westridge Elementary. Previously, I taught first grade for 6 years, second grade for 3, and this will be my sixth year teaching kindergarten. Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach; it is a year full of growth, wonder, and excitement.  I am very committed to giving your child a positive, nurturing, and fun beginning to their school years. I feel extremely privileged to have the chance to spend the year with you & your child!

     I live with my husband and 6 year old son, Cooper on a little farm in Fredericksburg with our black lab (Piper) cat (Jack), 12 chickens and 2 sheep! In my free time I like to read, shop, and play outside with my family.  We love to kayak, hike, and fish together.  As a graduate of Penn State, I also spend lots of time cheering for the Nittany Lions and the Pittsburgh Steelers during football season!

     Communication is very important to me so please feel free to contact me at any time. The easiest way to reach me is by email ( or by calling Westridge at (703) 590-3711.  I can't wait to have a wonderful year together!

Mrs. Roche
