Hello! My name is Brock Fulton. I was born way back in August of 1976, and raised in the small town of Bedford, PA where the Bedford Springs Hotel, famous for being the summer White House of President James Buchanan is located. While many people are named after a loved relative, I was named after Mrs. Chancellor’s son, Brock, on the Young and the Restless! Additionally, I happen to be a distant relative of John Adams, one of our nation’s founding fathers!
Growing up, I enjoyed playing baseball, riding my bike, and playing school. I lived in a rural area where there were no kids my age to play with. I had to occupy my time by entertaining myself…and there was no Wii or Xbox way back then! As a teenager, I became interested in participating in my high school’s musicals. I played the role of the Narrator in Into the Woods, the role of Mr. Bixby, Dorcus’s father, in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and the role of Eugene, the nerd, in Grease! After graduating from Bedford High School, I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, so I took a year off and worked at a fast food restaurant, which wasn’t very fun! I thought about becoming a chef at a Disney resort….and then I thought about helping hurt people by being a nurse…but then I decided that I wanted to be a teacher so that I could make a positive difference in the lives of lots and lots of kids! Building positive relationships with people is very important to me.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, PA. After graduating from UPJ in May of 2001, I interviewed for a teaching position for Calvert County Public Schools in August of the same year. After the interview, I was offered a position at Mutual Elementary School, where I taught grade 5 for two years and grade 3 for four years. I left all of my family and friends behind in Pennsylvania so that I could begin my teaching career. After my first year of teaching, I began taking classes through the College of Notre Dame of Maryland to earn my Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision. After that graduation, I interviewed for a Dean position and was selected to work at Beach Elementary and Sunderland Elementary for the 2007-2008 school year. After that wonderful experience, I transferred to Mutual Elementary and St. Leonard Elementary for the 2008-2009 school year. It was really great to work with familiar staff again. For the 2009-2010 school year, I was assigned to work at Dowell Elementary as a half time Dean and as a half time Learning Specialist, where I continued to learn and experience even more! Finally, in 2010, I was promoted to Vice Principal at Barstow Elementary School, where I served that community for four years.
I really love living in Calvert County. I think that the Southern Maryland area is a very beautiful and wonderful place to live. Living near the Chesapeake Bay and being so close to Washington DC, Annapolis, and Baltimore makes living here more enjoyable and convenient. I also love traveling to the eastern shore and visiting the beaches there. And while I’m mentioning places that I love to visit, traveling to New York City to watch a Broadway show is something I also enjoy.
So, now that you know a little bit about my background, I would like to say that I am very excited being part of the Huntingtown Elementary Staff. I am still in the process of purchasing additional green and yellow attire so that I can show my school spirit each week! I look forward to meeting and working with you this year. If there is anything that I can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask.
