After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Elementary Education from Western Maryland College in 1999, Mrs. Lori Billman returned to McDaniel College where she earned her Master’s in Educational Administration.
Mrs. Billman began her educational career in Maryland’s Carroll County Public Schools in 2000 as a fifth grade teacher at Linton Springs Elementary School. She spent a year and half teaching within the county school system where she experienced the practice of team teaching. Upon returning to Pennsylvania, Mrs. Billman taught in a private school system over the next two years and began to explore an interest in school systems beyond the classroom.
In 2003, Mrs. Billman joined South Western School District as a sixth grade teacher at Emory H. Markle Intermediate School. A commitment to the middle school learner and a curiosity for educational leadership grew during her tenure as an educator at Emory H. Markle Intermediate School. Through continuing studies and experiences beyond the classroom, Mrs. Billman earned the opportunity to serve South Western School District and the community as an assistant principal of Emory H. Markle Intermediate School in 2014. Since that time, she has remained dedicated to helping the middle school learner develop socially, emotionally and academically in order to meet the demands of their future world.
