Two long-time teachers leaving

In June, English teacher Debrah Hamilton and math teacher Victoria Bracken will retire from Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS).

Last year Bracken thought about retiring, but with the state of the economy, she thought it was best to stay for an extra year. She has been teaching for over 31 years and wants to continue working but on a more flexible schedule. Bracken plans to continue with her role as an adjunct teacher at Towson University. 

Bracken is also the mathematics department chair which will leave a space that must be filled next year.

“Mr. Wynkoop will have to figure out whether he wants to hire someone from within or whether he wants to look elsewhere to hire somebody to take this position,” said Bracken.

After turning 70 and wanting to spend time with her family, Hamilton has decided that this year she will say farewell to Dulaney. Hamilton is in charge of many clubs including Christian Fellowship and Debate and already has plans for other teachers to take over. She has also considered what she will do with the extra time.

“I want to travel, spend time with my husband, I haven’t done a lot at my church the last couple decades but I plan to get a lot more involved in bible studies…it’ll just be fun to not have to do something,” said Hamilton.
