Please join us in welcoming Amanda Dorr, acting assistant principal, in Mr. Gerstner’s absence. Mrs. Dorr is very excited to be a part of the Floris family over the next few weeks. She was born and raised in West Virginia and moved to the Northern Virginia area fourteen years ago. Mrs. Dorr began working with Fairfax County Public Schools in 2004, serving in various roles such as: an Employment Transition Representative, a high school and middle school special education teacher- math and science, and as an ESY DHOH teacher and administrator.  She earned her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Fairmont State College, a master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling from WVU, a master’s in special education from GMU, and recently finished her Administrative Certificate through ACC/UVA. Some personal things about Mrs. Dorr: She has two children, Julian (9) and Jamison (6), and two fur babies Nala and Jack. As a family, they enjoy swimming at camp, going for walks/runs, and fishing. Mrs. Dorr just ran her first 5K in November and looks forward to trying another one in the spring. She is fluent in sign language and loves crafting. Organizing spaces and event planning are Mrs. Dorr’s hobbies. Welcome, Mrs. Dorr!
