The head of St. Timothy's School, a private girls boarding and day school in Stevenson, has resigned, effective at the end of the school year. Deborah M. Cook, head of St. Timothy's for nine years, said that it was a difficult decision to leave the school, but it was time for her to explore other professional opportunities. Cook, 51, said she and her family are planning to stay in the Baltimore area for now. Cook, who said that St. Timothy's is well-positioned for new leadership, is not sure what her next career move will be, but it will be education in some form, she said.
