Mamie J. Perkins - Interim Superintendent
Anne Arundel County Public Schools

Mamie Johns Perkins was appointed as interim superintendent of Anne Arundel County Public Schools on July 23, 2013. Her term runs from August 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014.

Background/Career & Education Highlights

Perkins has compiled a 40-year career in education, with more than 26 years spent in Howard County and 13 years in Baltimore city schools.

She began her educational career as a classroom teacher in Baltimore city in 1973, and worked there until 1986. While in Baltimore, she also served as a resource teacher for foreign-born students, a summer school principal, a supervisory teacher for student teachers, and a reading resource teacher for adult learners.

Perkins moved to Howard County Public Schools in 1986, where she worked as a teacher for gifted and talented programs, coordinator of elementary and health education, and supervisor of health education. She oversaw the system’s Human Resources department from 1999 to 2005, and was chief of staff from 2005 to 2011, when she became deputy superintendent. She was acting superintendent of the school system from June 2011 to July 2012, and retired in August 2012.

“Mamie Perkins is a passionate advocate for children who has diverse experiences over a long career that will serve our school system very well in the coming year,” Board President Teresa Milio Birge said upon Ms. Perkins’ appointment. “Our Board is confident that she will work with the dedicated team we have in place to continue the upward trajectory our school system has been on over the last seven years.”

Perkins will be paid $197,087 for the 11 months of her contract.

Perkins has also been an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Education. In April 2013, she was appointed by Governor Martin O’Malley to a six-year term on Howard Community College’s Board of Trustees, a position she intends to keep through the coming year.

Perkins holds a bachelor’s degree from Towson University and a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University. She lives in Marriottsville with her husband, Carl.
