Ms. Kimberly M. Boldon - Principal
It is my great pleasure to welcome all of our students, staff, and parents to the 2020-2021 school year! This school year marks the 50th Anniversary of Thomas S. Wootton High School! We are excited to mark this milestone in Wootton’s history as we kick off the 2020-21 school year and throughout the school year!
It's hard to believe that I am starting my eighteenth year at Wootton High School. I began working at Wootton in 2000 as an English teacher, and during my tenure at Wootton, I have served as the English resource teacher and as an assistant principal. This year marks my sixth year as the very proud principal of Wootton. I have deep ties to the Wootton community, and I remain committed to serving this dynamic and vibrant school community.
We understand and know how challenging this time has been for our students, staff, and families. As we begin the first semester in a virtual learning environment, we remain committed to providing our school community with an engaging, connected, and kind school community. We are all here to support each other as we move through this school year together. Our SGA theme this year is Unity through Adversity.
We strive to inspire our students to pursue their interests and passions through their academics and extra-curricular endeavors. I encourage each member of our community to be involved, stay involved, and do your part in making this school year the very best. I look forward to working with our students, families, staff and community partners to ensure that we have a great year. Thank you for your continued support of Wootton and always remember: Patriots RULE!!!

Also remember, there are many caring and dedicated staff members to support you through the stress of senior year and as you make decisions about where the next chapter of your lives will take you. Continue to work hard, persevere and finish your high school career strong. I look forward to supporting you this year and remember, I am only an email or zoom call away!
Ms. Jane Cocker - Admin for Class of 2021
Welcome back Juniors, Class of 2021. I am honored and excited to continue our journey together at Wootton, and this year is promising to be another great year for us. You are a hardworking, dedicated and engaged group of students and I am proud to be your administrator. Junior year is the year to explore what you may want to do beyond high school, if you haven’t already I am encouraging you to start to look at your post high school options and discover your passion. The opportunities for you at Wootton are incredible, and I strongly encourage you to get involved with a club or a sport as well as your class activities. Junior year can be hard academically, and I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to find the balance between academics and fun. If ever you need support, don’t hesitate to reach out. Your teachers, counselors and all the staff at Wootton, along with myself, are here to support you and guide you on this journey. Come and see me in my new office which is opposite the media center if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to stop in and say hi! Can’t wait to see you all! Keep shining on, Class of 2021!
Mr. Joe Mamana - Admin for Class of 2022Welcome back Class of 2022. I am proud and excited to continue working with the Junior class. I really got to know many of you the last two years through your academic classes, lunch time chats and your extracurricular activities. You showed great work and study habits even through online learning at the end of last year. Your Junior year is an exciting year as many of you will begin visiting (virtually) colleges and universities. You will be looking at admission processes and schools that have degrees and programs that interest you. This is the year you start thinking about where you want to be as a senior and what classes interest and challenge you. I encourage students to find a healthy balance between their academics, their extracurriculars and their time with family and friends. Students and parents can contact me through email if you have a question, concern or something you would like to share that would help me or the Wootton team better support your child. Remember your teachers, counselors, Wootton staff and myself are committed to supporting you as you continue your journey here at Wootton. I look forward to a great year.
Mr. Nick Hitchens - Admin for Class of 2023
I know many of you, having served as the English Resource Teacher last year. I also know the school and its community particularly well: I was an English teacher at Wootton for 13 years and am also a Wootton graduate myself! I am a former Dufief Dragon and a Frost Eagle as well. I am committed to supporting you this year, especially as we embark on another round of distance learning together.
I would like each and every one of you to remember to be kind to yourselves, giving yourselves a bit of grace along the way. Finding a balance between academics, extra-curricular activities, friends, family and much needed personal time can be difficult, but it is a necessary aspect of navigating high school, especially now. As always, if you or your parents or guardians ever need any assistance or guidance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I can’t wait for a fantastic year!
Mr. Bradley Rohner - Admin for Class of 2024Welcome to Wootton, Class of 2024! I am excited to embark on our first year at Wootton together. I look forward to getting to know all of you virtually and hopefully in person as the year progresses. Your first year in high school is extremely important. I can still recall all of the emotions I felt my first year in high school such as fear of the unknown, stress of how much work I would have on a daily basis and the social aspects of the high school experience. I am here to support you through that experience and the challenges and obstacles that we may encounter and overcome together.
I want to share my journey with all of you. I grew up in a town called Medford, NJ and graduated from Shawnee High School and then attended Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania majoring in history and secondary education. My first year teaching was at a school called Cherokee High School in Marlton, NJ. During that time I also completed my master’s degree in school administration from The College of New Jersey. I moved to Maryland where I joined the Montgomery County Public Schools community as a Social Studies Resource Teacher and then Assistant Principal at the high school level. Now I am a proud Wootton Patriot!
I look forward to this year together and hope you feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
