Welcome to Talbott Springs Elementary School! It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to serve the students and families in our school community. I am a parent, a wife, and a learner who is committed to excellence. After 10 years as a Registered Nurse, I chose to return to school to receive my Masters in Instructional Systems Design from UMBC. I then spent 12 years teaching 4th and 5th grade with the Howard County Public School System. I really loved this time of my career! I was an assistant principal at Stevens Forest Elementary for 4 years and am now entering my 12th year as principal of Talbott Springs Elementary. I have found my home in our school community as I continue to learn about more children and their families. It is my profound desire to address the learning needs of each child while supporting the professional growth and engagement of our staff members. I enjoy hearing the stories that staff and families bring to our midst and hope to continue hearing more wonderful stories as the school year progresses.
I appreciate the support of our families, the TSES PTA and the Oakland Mills and Owen Brown communities as we work together to provide our shared children with guidance in learning and hope for the future. Please feel free to contact me by phone or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share your thoughts.
