Mrs. Theresa Farnell

My name is Theresa Farnell and I am the Principal of Centreville Elementary School.  This is my 30th year in education.  I was an elementary school teacher in Talbot County for 12 years before moving to Queen Anne's County in 2004-2005.  I was the Teacher Specialist at Sudlersville Elementary for five years, before moving to Sudlersville Middle School as the Assistant Principal.  I was there for four years and then became the Assistant Principal at Centreville Middle School - where I served for three years.

This is my sixth (6th) year as principal of CES!  I work with great teachers, assistants, custodial engineers, specialists, secretaries, volunteers, students, and families!  My focus this year is on Relationships, Rigor, Relevance, and Reflective Practices that enhance student learning each and every day.

On a personal note, I have two boys, Zack and Josh, and a husband, Mark.  Zack now lives in Florida and works for Enterprise and Josh is working on his Master's Degree in Business, so I am trying to adjust to an "empty nest".  I love to spend time with my family, at the beach (or anywhere with water),  and I like to run and lift weights.  

CES is truly a magical place and I hope that your child enjoys his/her time here.  At CES, we make it happen! 



Five of my favorite things are:

1. Exercising (running and lifting weights) 

2. The Green Bay Packers

3. Food (coffee, dark chocolate, pizza)

4. Shopping - Anywhere

5. The Beach
