Tammy Jones

Tammy Jones Principal tammy_jones@hcpss.org
I am honored to be the proud principal of Lime Kiln Middle school. It is my goal to lead a school community that values rigor, relevance, and relationships. I began my career in Howard County as a social studies teacher at Atholton High school and served as an assistant principal at Marriotts Ridge, Wilde Lake, Reservoir, and Long Reach High school. My varied experiences have afforded me an opportunity to further underscore the importance of creating a school that values diversity and commonality while maintaining a safe and welcoming learning environment for all students and staff.
