Principals of the Year

If it takes a village to raise a child, that village must include great educators. In honoring an outstanding elementary and secondary principal each year, Baltimore County Public Schools celebrates all of its principals for making a positive difference in the lives of our students.

Principal of the Year


Missy Fanshaw, principal at Rodgers Forge Elementary School, and Sandra Reid, principal at Pikesville High School, were named the Elementary and Secondary Principals of the Year at the 2016 Teacher of the Year and Principal of the Year Ceremony.

“Missy and Sandra are two of the most enthusiastic and dedicated school leaders I have ever met," said Superintendent S. Dallas Dance. “These two ladies exemplify the importance of having steadfast and committed leaders at each schoolhouse in Baltimore County. Both have created a cohesive and energetic school culture while emphasizing growth and student achievement.”

The Principal of the Year program is in its fourth year and was begun by Dr. Dance. The selection process depends upon nominations from the schools. This is the first year that BCPS has honored both an elementary and a secondary principal of the year.
