PRINCIPAL- DAWN ROGERS
I grew up in Georgetown Delaware and come from a family of six children! 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!
ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL- 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! Twelve years ago, my husband and I moved to Maryland, and I became an English 10 teacher at Stephen Decatur High School while he became a Maryland State Trooper. We have a son, Cooper, and a daughter, Ellie, who are the lights of our lives. For three years, I enjoyed being an assistant principal at Berlin Intermediate School. I feel that it is a privilege to get 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!
GUIDANCE COUNSELOR- LINDA McGEAN
I am thrilled to say that 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. Residents of Bishopville, my husband and I have raised two sons and three dogs. As a transplant to the Eastern Shore of Maryland I feel fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful place. On warm days you will find me at the beach, walking on the boardwalk or puttering in my garden. My favorite way to pass the time is to curl up and lose myself in a good book. 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!
