Hello! I'm so happy to be a part of the RSES staff. I began my CCPS career in August 2006 at the Central Office working in Human Resources. I worked in HR for 9 years and then accepted a transfer to RSES to be closer to family and home and also for the opportunity to work in the school environment. I am constantly learning and growing along with the students in our school and everyday is a new and wonderful experience.

I have an amazing grandson that I enjoy spending time with along with my 2 dogs and cat. My hobbies include crocheting, reading, and watching the Hallmark Channel.

Hello everyone, I am currently working on my 11th year with Rising Sun Elementary School and have worked as a Secretary for over 26 years.  I was previously employed with Mercantile County Bank and moved to Rising Sun Elementary School when my family and I built our home here in Rising Sun, Maryland.
 
My husband and I will be celebrating our 22nd anniversary this October and we have two beautiful children.  Emily will graduate Rising Sun High this year and our son Jackson is a freshman at Rising Sun High.
 
In our spare time we are constantly on the go with our kids traveling around for soccer, lacrosse, baseball and football. I enjoy watching the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens. I also enjoy gardening and spending time with family and friends.

Hello! This is my 17th year at the front desk at Rising Sun Elementary School.  It all started while volunteering for my daughter’s class.  A job opened up and I’ve been here since.  I love watching the children from this school grow up, come back and tell us where they are now.

My husband and I just celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary.  We have two wonderful children.  Kyle is married to Sarah, lives and works for Delaware’s government and Julie will graduate this December from Towson University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. We also have two dogs we spoil rotten, Buster and Stella.

We love going to Orioles and Ravens games, as we are season ticket holders.  And when school is out we are either in the pool or on the beach in Delaware.
