Ms. Rochelle Marbury, Principal
I am delighted to become the principal of Rydal Elementary School. I have been a member of the Abington School District since 1991. Before that I was a middle school math teacher in New England and a pharmaceutical representative. I spent my classroom years in sixth grade at Glenside Weldon and Copper Beech before becoming the Elementary Math Coach in several schools across the district. I have been an administrator for the past five years working as a Curriculum Specialist at Roslyn and Rydal.
My education includes a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University, and a Masters Degree and Principal Certification from Arcadia University. I have lived in the Huntingdon Valley community for the past thirty years, raising two sons who are now both in their twenties.
I am grateful to be surrounded by motivated, smart, and caring staff and students. I will work conscientiously to continue the strong tradition of excellence for our students and work diligently with parents and faculty to foster an atmosphere that promotes a learning community characterized by child centered instruction, academic excellence, trust, respect, community involvement, and communication. Working together as a team we will continue to foster a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment in which all Rydal students can learn at optimal levels and become responsible, contributing members of society.
I am proud of our past successes and look forward to building upon them in the future.
