I grew up in Georgetown Delaware and come from a family of
six childMrs. Rogersren! Becoming an educator has been a heart’s desire of mine since I was a little girl. My Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in teaching and administration are from Salisbury University. After staying home with my girls for a number of years, I taught at Berlin Intermediate School for nine years and then served as Assistant Principal at BIS for seven years. Becoming Principal of OCES is a dream come true! I am proud to be part of a family of a fabulous staff, parents and students. I have a wonderful husband, Brooke, and two beautiful daughters, Amy (a teacher) and Emily (a nurse), who live in San Diego. My daughters are married so I have gained two wonderful sons, Tyler and Alec. It is a privilege and honor to serve all of OCES and to be part of guiding students to become whatever they want to be!



Julie Smith

It is a pleasure to be a part of the Ocean City Elementary School family!  Originally, I am from Pennsylvania where I attended Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA, home of the Little League World Series! Over 13 years ago, my husband and I moved to Maryland. We have a handsome son, Cooper, and a beautiful daughter, Ellie, who are the lights of our lives.  I began my career at Stephen Decatur High School, where I taught English. From there, I enjoyed being an assistant principal at Berlin Intermediate School for 3 year. It is exciting to work with children every day, and I am so proud to be a part of their successes. I am very fortunate to be here at OCES, and I can't wait to continue the school year with these wonderful children!



 I have been the Counselor at Ocean City Elementary School since 2003. I have a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Psychology and a Master’s in School Counseling. As your School Counselor, I work with all students to promote their academic, personal/social and career development needs. In addition to teaching class lessons, I counselor individual students and small groups.  It is a privilege to work with the wonderful faculty, staff, students and parents of Ocean City Elementary. I am grateful for the opportunity to guide our students as they work toward fulfilling their potential. Everyday at OCES is an adventure and I am delighted to be a part of it!
