Meet Mrs. Farnell
My name is Theresa Farnell and I am the Principal of Centreville Elementary School. This is my 26th year in education. I was an elementary school teacher in Talbot County for 12 years before moving to Queen Anne's County in 2004-2005. I was the Teacher Specialist at Sudlersville Elementary for five years, before moving to Sudlersville Middle School as the Assistant Principal. I was there for four years and then became the Assistant Principal at Centreville Middle School - where I served three years.
I am very excited to be entering my second year as principal of CES! I work with great teachers, assistants, custodial engineers, specialists, secretaries, volunteers, students and parents! My focus this year is on Relationships, Rigor, Relevance, and Reflective Practices that enhance student learning each and every day.
On a personal note, I have two boys, Zack and Josh, a husband, Mark and a Shetland Sheep Dog, Ruby. Both of my boys are now in college so I am trying to adjust to an "empty nest". I love to spend time with my family (when they come home from college) and I also like to run and exercise.
I am looking forward to a great school year! At CES, we make it happen!
Five of my favorite things are:
1. Exercising (running and lifting weights)
2. The Green Bay Packers
3. Food (coffee, dark chocolate, pizza)
4. Shopping - Anywhere
5. The Beach
