Ms. Erin Skahill - Principal
Eagle Elementary is one of the largest of the seven elementary schools in our community and we are proud of the comprehensive experience and services we provide. At the present time, approximately 560 students in grades K through 5 and 36 students in Pre-K benefit from the rigorous, academic, social and emotional programs instituted in our school.
Our educational programs are designed to meet the needs of all children in a warm and safe environment. Our diverse environment promotes empowerment to learn through effective instructional leadership and we challenge our students to learn through problem solving and critical thinking skills. Our instruction is varied, and reflects the most up to date research on cognitive brain development and learning patterns. Our teachers participate in ongoing training and development that sharpens their skills and expands their base of knowledge.
Our “whole child” culture also reflects our dedication to the personal and social needs of our children. These behaviors are evidenced in our approach to SEL, extensive "special" programs and curricula, structured and unstructured play areas, and a highly effective support staff. All of these initiatives help our students to become responsible and productive members of society. At Eagle, we strive to nurture each child in ways that are unique and focused.
We are proud of the excellent teaching staff at Eagle, not only because of their high level of training and expertise, but for their commitment and dedication to the success of every child. Teachers make themselves available whenever possible for extra help, as well as formal and informal conferences with parents and the community.
I was born and raised on Long Island and I attended Dowling College where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. After I graduated, I attended Stony Brook University where I earned a Master’s Degree in Liberal Sciences. With encouragement from my principal when I taught in the Brentwood School District, I graduated with honors with my Administration and Supervision Degree from Queens College School of Education. Besides being a teacher, I was also an Assistant Principal in the Brentwood School District and have been the Principal at Eagle Elementary School for the past 11 years. I have a wonderful husband, 2 fabulous daughters who are also educators, 1 great son in law who is a Lieutenant in the Baltimore City Fire Department and our future son in law who is a Sergeant in the Army. I have 5 amazing grandchildren.
