Form Three Teachers (4th and 5th grades)
Collyn Capp joined the Lorien Wood faculty in 2016. She holds a BA from Covenant College in Early Childhood Education and is currently working on a Masters degree from Covenant in Integrated Curriculum and Instruction.
Collyn first worked as a deejay at a local radio station in Hillsdale, Michigan. In 2008, she joined the staff of Washington Christian Academy (WCA) in Olney, Md. as a second grade teacher. In 2014, she worked as an educational assistant for grades K, 1, and 3 and co-taught first grade in 2015-16.
As a teacher, Collyn loves being part of God's story for her students' lives and witnessing them gain new knowledge. She also treasures paying attention to all the things they teach her as well! Collyn is married to Keith and has a son named Grant. Collyns enjoys "thinking big" with friends and colleagues, investing in friends and family, spending time outside (including camping with her family), creative pursuits, and being with her son while he explores everything and reading books together.
Abigail Westbrook joined the Lorien Wood faculty in 2011. Prior to that, Abigail was a Teaching Assistant in 4th-8th grades at the Bloomington Project School. She taught Kindergarten at Lorien Wood prior to becoming a Form Three teacher in 2013.
She attended Colorado Christian University before finishing her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a Reading License at Indiana University. She student-taught in her hometown of Carmel, Indiana, and then journeyed to Scotland to engage in classroom teaching, host-family living, and community affairs.
Abigail spent two summers leading a riding program at Lost Valley Ranch, a guest ranch in Colorado. Here she was able to combine all her greatest loves—the outdoors, horses, and teaching children. She is married to John Westbrook.
