Biographical Information

Always on the lookout for effective instructional practices, Margo Handy, principal of Pemberton Elementary School in Salisbury, participates in local, state and national reading and math conferences, takes teams of teachers and parents to visit Blue Ribbon and model elementary schools, immerses herself in a variety of educational journals, books and magazines, and accesses other pertinent resources through technology and community networking opportunities.
