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 as the Assistant Principal for seven years, and then as the Principal since the fall of 2015. I am honored to lead this school, and I am very committed to this community. As a graduate from HCPSS, it makes me proud to be part of the great things that are happening here. I was a classroom teacher for 20 years at Phelps Luck Elementary and Manor Woods Elementary. I am a graduate of York College of Pennsylvania, Western Maryland College, and McDaniel College. As your principal, I maintain an open door policy. Please feel free to come in to the office, call, or with any questions, comments, celebrations, or concerns you would like to share. I look forward to working with you and your children. I wish all of you a wonderful school year. THES Shines because of our students, staff, and community!

Greetings students and families and welcome back to another exciting year at Thunder Hill Elementary School. I am looking forward to working and collaborating with such wonderful students, staff, parents, and community partners this school year. This will be my third year at THES and twenty-six year with the Howard County Public School System. I’ve been fortunate to work alongside a dedicated administrative team, staff, and talented students, which has made each day at THES a blast. 2017-18 promises to be an exciting year, as we continue to showcase the wonderful happenings at THES. As always, I will continue to advocate for all students at Thunder Hill ES and remain committed to coaching and supporting our wonderful teachers and staff. Here’s to a great upcoming school year…Go Thunder Hill !!!
