Meet the Principal

Principal Kilcoyne was born in Prince George’s County, Maryland. As a part of a military family, she frequently moved to different military bases on the East Coast. She finally settled in St. Mary’s County, and after graduation joined AmeriCorp, working with the Maryland Conservation Corps (MCC). She was inspired to become a teacher while on a trip to an elementary school in Calvert County to teach children about trees with the MCC.

Principal Kilcoyne has been an educator in Baltimore City Public Schools for 13 years. She began as a second grade teacher at Morrell Park Elementary Middle, moved on to be a librarian at Brehms Lane Elementary School and Belmont Elementary School before becoming principal of Medfield Heights Elementary School in 2014.

She attended Towson University for her bachelor's degree in elementary education, University of Phoenix for an MBA in marketing and the College of Notre Dame of Maryland for a post master’s degree (CASE) in both school administration and library media science. She enjoys spending time with her family, gardening and home improvement projects.
