Hello! My name is Michele Law. I have been teaching at Falls Church Academy for 10 years. When I first arrived, I taught medical assisting as well as Exploring the Language of Medicine with Anatomy & Physiology. With the growth of the academy, I moved to solely teaching the medical assisting course. Before joining the academy, I taught health and medical classes at FCPS Adult and Community Education, to adults who were pursuing a career in health care. I have also taught CPR & First Aid to the community all around Fairfax. In 2001, I graduated from William Jewell College, in Liberty, Missouri, with a Bachelor's Degree in the Science of Nursing. While in nursing school. I worked as a phlebotomist at Liberty Hospital in Missouri. As a graduate nurse, I worked at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City in the same-day surgery & recovery department and was there for 3 years before choosing to stay home to raise my 2 boys who are now 21 & 17 years old! Prior to that, I worked as a medical assistant for 10 years and prior to that, I worked as a CNA in a nursing home, caring for the geriatric population as they lived out their final years – which is by far still my favorite!
I am currently taking classes towards a master’s degree in educational leadership, at Liberty University and will be finished Spring of 2022. So ‘school’ is my life, at the moment. When I am not doing school work, I enjoy time outside playing with and walking my sweet rescue dog Bruno, going on day or weekend trips with friends and/or just sitting on the couch binging on reality TV, Hulu or Netflix. I am originally from the great state of Ohio and am a Buckeye. My favorite thing to do in the Fall is watch college football. Each Saturday from September to December, I am glued in front of the TV watching THE Ohio State University Buckeyes play and many of ‘the other’ college games.
