Roland Park Educator Among Maryland Teacher of the Year Finalists


By Ethan McLeod, Baltimore Fishbowl

Justin Holbrook is now representing Baltimore City Public Schools as a finalist for 2017-18 Maryland Teacher of the Year.

Holbrook, a fourth-grade math and science instructor at Roland Park Elementary/Middle, is one of seven teacher picked for the annual state award. A Maryland Department of Education press release says Holbrook is “inspired to enhance professional learning through teacher story-telling and classroom experiences.” He holds a master’s degree from Loyola University Maryland, which he earned earlier this year, and a bachelor’s degree from Goucher College.

He’s on something of a tear now after being named Baltimore City Public Schools’ Teacher of the Year for 2017 in May. City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises described him in a statement at the time as “a creative and energetic teacher who puts the needs of his students first and works to ensure all students have engaging learning opportunities.”
