Welcome to Thunder Hill Elementary School! As the principal of Thunder Hill, I am very proud of our students, staff, and the parents that make our school such a wonderful place to grow and learn. Together we are striving to provide the best educational experience at Thunder Hill Elementary School. I joined the staff at Thunder Hill in the fall of 2008 as the Assistant Principal, and then was the Acting Principal for one school year. I am honored to be the Principal, and I am very committed to this community. I taught in this county for 22 years at Clarksville Elementary, Phelps Luck Elementary, and Manor Woods Elementary. I am a graduate of York College of Pennsylvania, Western Maryland College, and McDaniel College. As a graduate from HCPSS, it makes me proud to be part of the great things that are happening here. I am thrilled to be part of the Thunder Hill community, and I wish all of you a wonderful school year. THES Shines!
