Hello Glenwood! I am so pleased to be starting my 26th year with HCPSS as your principal. This is my second placement at Glenwood; I was here as assistant principal from 2003 to 2005. I am very much looking forward to renewing my relationships with staff and community members who were here before and building strong bonds with those I have not met yet. I have been a lifelong resident of Maryland and was a science teacher when I was in the classroom. I even had the honor of spending a year working in the solar physics lab at the Goddard Space Flight Center from 1998-1999 in between teaching assignments at Hammond and Wilde Lake Middle Schools. I’ve spent the last 13 years of my career as both the assistant principal and principal at Elkridge Landing Middle. My favorite events/memories from my previous time at Glenwood are Outdoor Ed and Midnight Madness. I am thrilled that the traditions associated with those two events have been kept alive for the 13 years I have been gone. I am looking forward to hearing from everyone I meet this year what you feel makes Glenwood remarkable and distinguished.

Hello Glenwood! I am so excited to be coming to Glenwood as I have heard such wonderful things about our staff and community. Ms. Cash and I started our careers together and are looking forward to partnering in the care of your children as we reunite here at GMS. Henry Adams once wrote, “A teacher affects eternity; [they] can never tell where [their] influence stops.” Every person has the ability to teach another and we endeavor to get the best from your students by maintaining high expectations and giving the best of ourselves each day. Having spent my entire career in middle school, I taught math, science, alternative education, and G/T resource before becoming an assistant principal in 2005. It is a joy and an honor to be a part of your child’s network of support. See you at school!
