As with Miss Boyle, I too am happy that you have visited our website and hope that you will find all of the information that you need.  I was thrilled when this opening for Assistant Principal came available as this is the place that I wanted to spend the rest of my career!

I am originally from sunny, Southern California, but moved with my parents to Northern Virginia for my high school years.  I am the youngest of three children.  I have a wonderful wife, Tracie, and son, Nathan.  We love pugs and hope to get another dog soon now that Tracie has retired.

I graduated from James Madison High School in 1982, received my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics Education from Virginia Tech in 1986, and my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Radford University in 2003.  I taught high school mathematics for 23 years prior to becoming Assistant Principal at Christiansburg Middle School.  I also served as Principal at CMS prior to coming to this awesome school!

Welcome to our school and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Mark B. Baetz, Assistant Principal
Eastern Montgomery Elementary School
