Owings Mills Elementary’s Rebecca Eig, the 2017-18 BCPS Teacher of the Year, is shown with her Grade 2 students and her gift baskets made possible by the Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public School’s community partners.

Can you imagine …

You have just started your morning as a teacher with bright-eyed Grade 2 students.


You are entering the conference room, ready to meet with your assistant principals to review top priority agenda.


You are in the middle of an end-of-year review and … who walks in? 

The Prize Patrol with balloons, gifts and bright smiling faces, there to celebrate you as 2017-18 Teacher or Principal of the Year.  That’s what happened to Rebecca Eig teacher at Owings Mills Elementary, Aubrey Brown, Principal of Randallstown High School and Cheryl Brooks, Principal of Berkshire Elementary, on May 31.


Laura Lemon and Debbie Phelps, from the Education Foundation, and Keith Siegle from iFly, surprise Randallstown High Principal Aubrey Brown as part of the BCPS Prize Patrol.

The Prize Patrol Caravan was joined by two new ambassadors of the foundation, Brandon McMann, General Manager, and Keith Siegle, Sales Manager of iFly Indoor Skydiving. In addition, Brandon Oland, Communications Specialist, BCPS, Debbie Phelps, Executive Director and Laura Lemon Associate Director of The Education Foundation, joined in the fun.

Let’s just say Eig, Brown, and Brooks were surprised.
