Mrs. Higgins

Welcome to my web page! I teach 7th grade math and provide support in general education classes. 

I received a Bachelor of Music Education from James Madison University, as well as completing Orff-Schulwerk certification in levels 1 and 2 at George Mason University, and Level 1 Band Instrument Repair and Steel Drum Band at Villanova University. I completed a Master of Education in Special Education from George Mason University in 2015. I attended the 2016 and 2018 JMU Content Teaching Academy for math co-teachers, as well as the VDOE ESOL and special education support. 

I have worked at MCPS for 13 years providing reading support at Weems, and Special Education services at Baldwin, Osbourn, and Metz. I also work with the Osbourn athletic department at home games. Prior to MCPS, I taught kindergarten at Manassas Baptist Preschool and music in Fauquier County Public Schools. When not at school, you can often find me gardening, attending Manassas events, or at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.

My 4 children are Osbourn High School graduates! My daughter Rachel graduated from Sweet Briar College and my son John graduated from West Virginia University. Patrick is currently a student at Virginia Military Institute, and Kevin is studying at WVU. I stay active on the parent councils for each of their schools.
