Dear Haymarket Elementary School Community,

I am so excited to be leading Haymarket Elementary School again this year! Our students, with the direction of our teachers, made significant gains last school year. We are now known in PWCS as a school that is dedicated to excellence and continuous improvement.

Over the past 16 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community. Safety is my #1 priority each day and this was reiterated at our Family Meetings with each grade level. Besides safety, we promote responsibility, respect, and kindness in everything we do.

Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at Haymarket. And of course, I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day.

My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they may learn as much as they can. This has been my philosophy since I began my career teaching with Manassas Park City Schools back in 2003. I worked at both Cougar Elementary School and Manassas Park Elementary School during which time I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I had the wonderful opportunity to gain valuable experience teaching students with special education needs as well as English Language Learners as well. After teaching in Manassas Park for 9 years, I was fortunate to join the Bristow Run Elementary School team as their Assistant Principal in 2011. Some of my many responsibilities included crisis management coordination, transportation, safety, special education, intervention, instructional leadership, and more. I then moved to G.C. Round Elementary School in Manassas City in 2015 where I was a building principal and had the honor and privilege to support hundreds of diverse learners each day. But my greatest achievement comes not professionally, but personally, as I am the father of two beautiful girls: Reese (4) and Shay (3). Last, but certainly not least, I have been happily married to my wife, Audrey for 11 years now. She currently works as a ESOL teacher at Loch Lomond Elementary School.

Once again, I am thankful each day to have the opportunity to come to work each day to see everyone’s smiling faces. I look forward to continuing our upwards trend this school year. Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all your children have the best possible experiences while at Haymarket.

Warm Regards,

Scott Baldwin
