About Miss Boleis
This is my first year teaching 3rd Grade at Mary Williams! I am originally from East Hampton, NY and came to Virginia to go to college. Once I made it to Virginia, I knew I didn't want to leave! I graduated from The University of Mary Washington with a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and a Masters of Science in Elementary Education. I have a 16 year old cat named Pierre, and my favorite color is orange. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year!
