Dana Bolojan - Technology Assistant Mrs. Bolojan comes to us from Virginia Academy where she worked with preschool children. She has a teaching degree in Music Education from Emanuel University in Oradea, Romania. She taught music to K-12 students in Zalau, Romania, for six years. After her move to the US she worked as a music director in an Ohioan church. During that assignment she arranged music using different music notation software. She heard about the music composition endeavors that Ms. Iodice and Mrs. Popa started for Loudoun County Public Schools and became very interested in working with them. Dana loves technology and is using it in her every day life as it helps her get organized and become more efficient in her activities. She is very excited to be a Steuart Weller member as she looks forward to using her experience to help bring excellence to our school.
