Profile of Dr. Kenneth E. Mann:

Dr. Kenneth E. Mann received his BS and MS from Frostburg State College in Maryland and his EdD in Policy Planning and Administration from the University of Maryland in 1988. Dr. Mann served as president of the Washington County Association of Elementary School Administrators as well as the Maryland Association of Elementary School Principals. He taught numerous workshops for prospective administrators and facilitated the MAESP workshop entitled “Previewing the Principalship.” He served as a member of the adjunct faculty at Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College) where he taught the course entitled “The Role of the Principal” to graduate students interested in school administration. He demonstrated leadership by serving as chairman of numerous committees at the local and state levels. In 1995 he was selected by his colleagues to be “The National Distinguished Principal” of Maryland. This is the highest honor an elementary principal working in Maryland can receive. Dr. Mann strongly believed that, “students aspiring to move into teacher education must have a strong commitment and dedication toward the education of all students.” Unfortunately, Dr. Mann died from cancer in 1996.
