Welcome to Bedford Elementary School
Home of the Bedford Bees!
Dear Bedford Elementary Families,
Hello! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of Bedford Elementary. I am very honored by this appointment and feel very lucky to be joining such a wonderful community school. It is my plan to continue the great work that has been done here at Bedford and build on that to push our students forward to meet their full potential.
My educational background includes 21 years with Baltimore County Public Schools. I began my teaching career as a fourth grade teacher and later a special educator at Scotts Branch Elementary. I spent three years in the Office of Special Education as a Resource Teacher and a Specialist before transitioning to the Assistant Principal at New Town Elementary. I have been serving as the Assistant Principal at New Town Elementary for the past 9 years. I believe this breadth of experiences has given a wonderful perspective on student learning that I can bring to my new role as Principal here at Bedford Elementary. Personally, I am married to a high school educator and we have two sons, one going into seventh grade and one beginning high school as a ninth grader. They are very active in sports and keep us very active!
Bedford has a long tradition of being a community school that supports students and families both academically and in the overall development of children. I have been so impressed with the families I have met through registration and at the two community-based Meet and Greets we had last week. I also can’t say enough about the faculty and staff I have met and how dedicated they are to the success of the student’s here.
I look forward to meeting anyone I haven’t met yet at our Open House and Back to School Night on Monday, August 25th from 3-4:30. Please enjoy the last few weeks of summer and do not hesitate to call if you have any questions. Remember….Back To School Involves YOU Too!!
