Hello and Welcome to Phelps Luck Elementary School. At PLES, we believe children are our most valuable resources and we all work together to ensure our students’ academic achievement as well as their social and emotional growth. I am proud to be a part of the Phelps Luck learning community where students are academically challenged and supported by a positive, safe, and nurturing environment. Prior to becoming an assistant principal at PLES, I served as assistant principal at Running Brook Elementary and Elkridge Elementary schools. I was a classroom teacher for several years in grades 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I am looking forward to a year filled with learning and building new positive relationships with our students, staff, parents and community members. Please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself so we can begin building a collaborative relationship. As always, I am looking forward to partnering with you to support your child’s elementary school experience. Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Phelps Luck by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.&.
