Faculty & Staff

The staff of Tuckahoe consists of certified, qualified, and caring professionals, whose aim it is to provide the finest educational opportunity for every student. Staff members work with the home to support student efforts to do their very best, and to ensure quality instruction for all.

The principal, an associate principal, two assistant principals, and three administrative aides serve as an administrative team. Tuckahoe has three student services counselors, two full-time librarians, and various resource and auxiliary personnel.

The instructional faculty is organized by departments. Through this approach Tuckahoe strives to meet individual student needs and to provide a quality learning community.

Please note the following:

  1. If the HCPS server goes “down," teachers cannot update their webpages, so students should always refer to their agenda book and/or call their “study buddies."  Teachers’ homework pages are available at tinyurl.com/TMSHomework.
