Bridgette Joskow is a Fairfax County Public Schools 5th grade teacher. She is originally from New York, which is where she received her undergraduate degree in Early Childhood and Childhood from SUNY New Paltz. After moving to Fairfax County Virginia, she began teaching 5th grade, which she has taught for the last 8 years.
Once she got her feet in the classroom and began working with a diverse range of students, she became enthralled with the idea that technology can bring students with learning disabilities to the same level as their General Education peer. This led Bridgette to go on and graduate with her Masters Degree in Blended and Online Learning from George Mason University. In 2021 Bridgette was nominated for the Fairfax County Public Schools Outstanding Teacher Award. Bridgette's current goals are to help her students rise into being collaborative and independent learners as well as support other educators in engaging and building blended learning communities in their classrooms. She enjoys creating new and engaging projects that give students choice and ownership over their learning.
