It wasn't Valerie Cooper's dream to become a school administrator when she was a three-sport athlete in the 1970s. But here she is today, sitting behind a desk at Aberdeen High, an assistant principal who enjoys her job and draws constantly on the lessons she learned from her experiences as a student-athlete at Bel Air. "Sports teaches real-life skills," she said. "It teaches how to cooperate with people and be respectful. It teaches you things you need in the work place, in college: to be on time, to be dependable.

Few students would complain about a snow day. But it might be a good idea to check back in with them June 18. That's the new last day of the school year in Howard County public schools as dictated by last week's winter storm, which scuttled two days of classes. The originally scheduled last day was Tuesday, June 16. The weather created an extended, unexpected break for county students, who had a half-day for testing Friday, Jan. 23, and last Monday for a scheduled professional work day. Tuesday and Wednesday's snow days, plus a two-hour delay Thursday, amounted to a gift from the gods of winter.

Susan A. Goglia, a retired Howard County teacher and principal who was as comfortable arguing for students' needs before superintendents as she was teaching reading to first-graders, died Friday of colon cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care. She was 59. "She was extremely well thought of by the administration because, as an educator, she had a clear vision. She always put her staff first and shared ways to make things happen," said Jonathan E. Davis, principal of Swansfield Elementary School in Columbia and a longtime friend.

Troy Todd has spent the summer moving, only to come right back where he started. The 36-year-old principal at Running Brook Elementary is a familiar face to students and staff. He spent the past three years there as a respected, dynamic assistant principal. It was hard for him to leave the school when he was transferred to Waterloo Elementary as an assistant principal at the beginning of the summer. But a series of transfers and promotions within the school system created an opening at his beloved Running Brook, which resulted in his returning to the school just as he had virtually completed the transition to his new assignment.
