A Photo of OES Principal Laurel Dietz Anderson

 I am a long-time resident of St. Mary's County. I am a graduate of Leonardtown High School and St. Mary's College of Maryland. I joined SMCPS in 2000 and earned a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Towson University in 2010.  Through my experiences, I have learned the most important factor in ensuring student success in learning is developing a positive and nurturing community for students, staff, and families. I am committed to creating a welcoming, safe, and caring community for all who enter our doors.  Let’s get to work, otters!
