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.

I have been an assistant principal in Howard County for the last 7 years. Prior to being an administrator, I worked as an elementary and middle school special educator. I received my undergraduate degree from Towson University and earned my master's degree from Johns Hopkins in Administration and Supervision. I am looking forward to the new school year and working with the students, staff, and parents of the Bonnie Branch community.

I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Bonnie Branch community! I’ve proudly taught in the Howard County Public School System for the past 18 years. Originally from Syracuse, N.Y., I received my undergraduate degree from Towson University and later earned my master’s degree with a certification in Administration and Supervision from McDaniel College. I strongly value the power of connection and believe that everyone is deserving of respect. I hope to bring my love for educating the whole child, and every child, to the BBMS community.
