Poolesville Elementary School, home of the Tigers! My name is Doug Robbins and
I am excited to begin my ninth year as principal at PES. During my tenure here,
I have been overwhelmed by the unwavering commitment of our staff and parent
community in providing our students with unlimited opportunities for academic
and social growth. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work and feel extremely
fortunate to be a part of such a dynamic school community.
Personally, I was
born in Pittsburgh, PA and raised in Bucks County, PA, a suburb of
Philadelphia. This fact explains my mixed allegiances to both cities as I am an
avid fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Phillies, Flyers and 76ers.
College brought me to Maryland as I studied elementary education at the
University of Maryland, College Park before receiving my master’s degree in
administration and supervision at Western Maryland College (McDaniel College).
I have worked in six elementary schools in Montgomery County serving as a 3rd
and 4th grade teacher, staff development teacher and assistant principal prior
to my current role.
I am married to my
wife Andrea and we live with our two children in Frederick County, Maryland. My
wife and I met when we taught together at Rosemont Elementary School in
Gaithersburg. She will be a second grade teacher at Little Bennett Elementary
School this year. Our son Chase, who will be in 3rd grade this school year,
loves playing, watching and talking sports, much like his father! Maggie, our
daughter, will be a first grade student and loves swimming, American Girl
dolls, drawing and writing. As a family we love to spend time together outside
and plan our schedules around whatever sporting events are going on.
those of you who are new to our community, I look forward to getting to know
you and your children and I look forward to continuing relationships with those
who are returning Poolesville Elementary School families. We all have a lot to
look forward to! This is destined to be the best year yet!
