Kessler

This week's spotlight is on Andrea Kessler! Mrs. Kessler is our School Counselor.

We love having Andrea Kessler with us at Graham Road ES! Let's learn more about Andrea...

Staff Member: Andrea Kessler

Years at Graham Road ES: 8 years

Years in FCPS: 26 years

Why do you love working at Graham Road? I love connecting with the students, families and staff! The commitment our staff has for our community is inspiring.

Books your are currently reading: I just finished The Boy at the Top of the Mountain, about a young boy who lived at Adolf Hitler's home and how he was influenced by him. Even though the boy admired Hitler, in the end, he realized he made a bad choice and tried to make up for the hurt he caused. It reminds me it is never too late to change and make a choice to be kind.

Hobbies/Interests: When I am home, I enjoy running and sewing. I have tackled a few half-marathons and other shorter races. My favorite race is the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. It takes place around the monuments in DC and under an umbrella of flowering trees! My mom taught me to sew when I was young and she still advises me now. I have started quilting and love the time I have on the weekends to work on projects. My three children are grown and my youngest son is graduating from FCPS this June! My daughter just got married in March. She is a science teacher in Colorado. My older son is in college. I enjoy time with my husband and our pets, a dog and cat. I keep our turtle, Bartleby in a tank at school.
