Form Two: 2nd and 3rd grades

Collyn Capp

Collyn Capp is excited to return to teaching at Lorien Wood!  She graduated from Covenant College with a B.A. in Elementary Education in 2007 and then returned to complete her master’s degree in Integrated Curriculum and Instruction in 2017.  After graduation from undergraduate school, she taught second grade for six years at a Christian school in Olney, Maryland.  When her son was born in 2014, she was a teacher’s aide for one year and then team-taught first grade for one year.  She joined the Lorien Wood community in 2016 to teach Form 3 before taking several years off to care for her family.  

Collyn and her husband, Keith, have two children, Grant, a Form 1 student at Lorien Wood, and Hadley, a future Shire student!  Collyn enjoys being part of the music team at her church and the opportunity it provides for deep community and worship.  Her family loves to go on day trips together to explore small towns and enjoy beautiful scenery and hiking.  She and Keith continue to be thankful for sweet community they’ve found in their neighborhood, church, and Lorien Wood family!

Kayla Becker

Kayla Becker joined the Lorien Wood faculty in 2017. She graduated from Bridgewater College in 2015 with a B.A. in Music along with her teacher certification. Throughout her time in college, she helped direct the children's choir at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia, where she further developed her love of teaching and use of music as a way to help children draw closer to their Creator God. After graduation, she taught fourth grade for two years at a private Christian school outside of Harrisonburg.

Aside from teaching, Kayla enjoys all things music — singing in a choir, playing piano and guitar, attending concerts, and helping direct music programs and performances. Kayla brings her love of music and children to her teaching in the classroom.

She loves to travel and has served on three short-term mission trip teams in Oaxaca, Mexico. Kayla also enjoys sporting events, running, baking, eating anything with chocolate and peanut butter, and spending time with her family and friends.
