Her family includes her husband, Brad (who grew up in Chartwell) and two young adult children, Melinda and Jack. In her free time, Angela loves to read, watch sports, spend time with her family, and relax at the family’s vacation home in Myrtle Beach, SC.

An AACPS preschool teacher for 33 years, she says she’s found her new home here at “Snoopy School.” She has three daughters; two are in college and one is a junior at SPHS. She loves walking her dog, Camden, going to the beach, and cheering for our Baltimore teams.
