Pamela Zeigler (Harford)
Black History Month Leadership & Service Honoree Principal Pamela Zeigler is a remarkable educator, who has been a champion for children for more than 30 years with Harford and Baltimore County Public Schools.
She quotes famous educator Rita Pierson to describe her core belief, “every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” At Joppatowne High School, adults do just that.
At the start of the pandemic, Principal Zeigler adapted, advocated, and assisted with organizing hundreds of laptops, school supplies, protective equipment, and messages of encouragement to support students in a digital learning environment.
What hasn’t changed is her commitment and belief in each student, which translates to community partnerships to create more learning experiences and opportunities, and personal conversations with families to help students create a roadmap for their own future and access necessary resources.
