Hancock Middle-Senior High Principal Martin Green is retiring after serving as a principal in the Washington County Public Schools system for 10 years.

Green’s retirement, effective Aug. 1, was among the personnel moves unanimously approved Tuesday by the Board of Education.

Green started working in the school system as principal of Clear Spring High and later was principal at Boonsboro High, said Donna Newcomer, director of human resources and professional learning.

Rodney L. Gayman, who was an assistant principal at Western Heights Middle School, will now be the principal at Hancock Middle-Senior.

Matthew T. Hoffman, who was a student achievement specialist at Northern Middle School last school year, will be the new assistant principal at Western Heights, Newcomer said.

In other personnel moves, Smithsburg Middle is getting a new assistant principal: Daniel P. Brennan, who was an administrative intern at Western Heights last school year.

Brennan replaces Greg Rouse, who retired, according to an email from Newcomer.

Lincolnshire Elementary’s new assistant principal will be Josalyn A. Moskowitz, who was a student achievement specialist at Fountaindale Elementary last school year, Newcomer said.

Timothy J. Aitken, who was assistant principal at Lincolnshire Elementary School, will be principal at Hickory Elementary.

Teacher Alan Zube, who worked for the school system for 30 years, retired effective June 30, Newcomer said. Zube was a pre-engineering teacher at Washington County Technical High School.
