• Hello Riviera Beach Community!!!

    I wanted to reach out to introduce myself as the new principal of RBES. My name is Jason Anderson and I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to serve the families and community of Riviera Beach. I have spent the last 22 years working in education as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, supervisor and Executive Director of the Frederick County Public School System. Most recently I had the privilege of working for the global learning company, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt where I served many school districts across the country in effort to increase student achievement. I’m looking forward to serving you while using my past experiences to build on the already positive direction of Riviera Beach Elementary.

    Personally, I reside here in Anne Arundel County with my family. Lindsay is a teacher at Marley Middle School in Glen Burnie and my son, Kai, is a 3-month old who finds amazement in simple daily activities! I find enjoyment in running, biking, swimming, paddle boarding, fishing, gardening and serving the community where I can be of assistance. My goal is to become a part of the Riviera Beach Community and I look forward to meeting all of you in the next several weeks and months.

    I wanted to share that I’m going to try to get out into the community this summer! I may stop by and introduce myself and quickly to say “hi” so that you can put a face with the name. I don’t want to bother anyone and if you aren’t home, I plan to leave an invitation for you to stop by the school sometime later in the summer for “Meet the Principal Night” where we can quickly connect if we haven’t done so already.

    I wish you all a very safe, relaxing and FUN summer!


    Yours in education,


    Jason Anderson
