Mr. Brian Schilpp Named GCPS STEM Supervisor 

Last Updated on May 19, 2020 at 9:44am

Ms. Barbara Baker, Superintendent of Schools, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Brian Schilpp to the position of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Supervisor beginning the 2020-2021 school year. Mr. Schilpp holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Liberal Arts and Technology from Stevenson University and a Master of Education Degree in Human Resource Development from Towson University. He holds a Maryland Advanced Professional Certificate with Administrator I and II endorsements. Mr. Schilpp said, "I would like to thank the Garrett County Public Schools for the opportunity to work as the first Administrator in Residence (AIR). The AIR position allowed me to work with and support all schools around our county. That experience will prove invaluable as I transition into this new role."

Superintendent Baker stated, “Mr. Schilpp joined the GCPS family approximately six years ago and immediately began to make a positive impact on our school system. He has served in a number of leadership positions, including as the first ever Administrator in Residence. He did a tremendous job in that role, working closely with principals in order to not only learn from them, but also to provide assistance with data analysis. His work with both teachers and administrators helped to identify strategies to close the achievement gap. He will be missed at Northern Middle School but will be able to use his excellent data analysis skills to improve teaching and learning at all grade levels.”

Mr. Schilpp has been employed by Garrett County Public Schools since 2014. He served as a Project Lead the Way teacher from 2014 through 2019 at Northern Middle School. For the past year, he has served as an Administrator in Residence. Before coming to Garrett County, he was an educator at the Western School of Technology in Baltimore County for 3 years and at Eastern Technical High School in Baltimore County for 9 years. While a teacher at Northern Middle School, Mr. Schilpp was the Teacher in Charge from 2015-present; a member of the Leadership Team from 2015-present; a Department Chair from 2016-present; on the Crisis Prevention Intervention Crew from 2014-present, a FIRST LEGO Mentor from 2015-2019, and Head Coach of Varsity Basketball from 2015-present. Mr. Schilpp replaces Mr. Ryan Wolf who was recently named as the principal at Southern Garrett High School. The position was previously titled as Supervisor of Mathematics and Science.
