Andrew Cockley Principal Andrew_Cockley@hcpss.org
I am excited to be joining the Bonnie Branch Middle School community this year. My background in school administration covers 19 years in multiple school systems and levels and I enjoy getting to know new people in each of the communities I serve. At Bonnie Branch there is a rich tradition for success that I will look to build upon and I will do everything possible to help make your child's experience a positive one as they prepare for high school and beyond. I started my career in education as a middle school teacher and taught math and computer science throughout high school as well. My degrees come from Gettysburg College (Bachelor of Arts in Management and Finance), Arcadia University (Masters in Math Education), and Johns Hopkins University (Masters in School Administration and Doctorate of Education). I love to learn and hope to instill this in our students too. Being an avid runner and cyclist, I love that Bonnie Branch is located so close to some of the best trail systems around. I look forward to meeting you this year! Andrew Cockley, Ed.D.

Shawn Hastings-Hauf Assistant Principal shawn_hastings@hcpss.org
I am Shawn Hastings-Hauf and I am thrilled to be a Shark! School year 2019-2020 marks my 22nd year in education and my 21st in Howard County. Prior to coming to Bonnie Branch I taught English at Adirondack Senior High School in New York and Centennial High School here in Howard County. I have had the great fortune of serving as an Assistant Principal at Centennial High School, Long Reach High School, and Howard High School. In my years at both Long Reach and Howard I have witnessed the care and dedication that Bonnie Branch has for our students as well as the hard work that takes place within the classrooms preparing them for High School, College, Career, and life beyond. I am not only enthusiastic, but honored to be a part of this outstanding learning community.

Jonathan Dupski

Jonathan Dupski Leadership Intern jonathan_dupski@hcpss.org
I am Jon Dupski and I am excited to join the Bonnie Branch Community! This is my eleventh year working for HCPSS. I spent my first ten years as a math teacher, math instructional team leader, varsity baseball coach and chair of the School Improvement Team at Atholton High School. In addition, I served as a math teacher and assistant principal for Innovative Pathways Summer School. Last summer, I was promoted to Leadership Intern at Mt. Hebron High School. Although my experience at the middle school level has only been as a substitute teacher, my mother was a HCPSS middle school FACS teacher for 38 years. It was her passion for education that inspired me to pursue my career. I look forward to getting to know everyone and feel lucky to be a Shark!
