August 11, 2010|By DON AINES

HANCOCK -- Teachers and staff members at Hancock Middle/Senior High School will report to work today with a new principal.

Martin Green, 59, is moving into his new post after six years as principal of Boonsboro High School. Before that, Green was principal at Clear Spring High School for three years, he said.

"I've always enjoyed working in small-town schools, community schools," where traditions have been built by families over generations, Green said. The combined middle and high school building qualifies as small, with about 350 students and a staff of about 50 teachers, administrators and support personnel, he said.

"I'm moving into a school that has been doing well for quite some time," Green said. The challenge, he said, will be maintaining the school's record of academic achievement.

A graduate of Frostburg State University, Green said he has a master's degree in Educational Administration and Supervision. He soon will be entering his 36th year in education, he said.

After graduating from Frostburg, Green said he taught for a year in Talbot County before moving to Garrett County. Green taught middle and high school for 14 years before becoming an administrator, he said.

Green's predecessor, Eric Michael, recently was named supervisor of Athletics, Health and Physical Education for Washington County Public Schools, schools spokesman Richard Wright said.
