• Hello Maple Lane Family, I am Dr. Tia Wood and I am so excited to welcome you to Maple Lane Elementary School! It is an honor to move from assistant principal to principal here at Maple Lane!  My journey began as a teacher in a charter school, then to the Philadelphia School District for 9 years. I transitioned to Delaware County Christian School where I taught for 2 years. I became an assistant principal within the Chester Upland School District for 2 years and then transitioned to the Brandywine School District as an assistant principal at Maple Lane for the last four years! 

    I attended Cabrini University in Radnor, PA and earned my Bachelor of Science in Education in 2007. In 2009, I graduated from Cheyney University with a Masters in Educational Leadership. In 2015, I graduated from Saint Joseph’s University with a Masters in Education with a Special Education concentration. In 2020, I graduated from Cabrini University, earning a Doctor of Education in School Leadership! 

    As the proud principal of Maple Lane, I am committed to our mission to connect, learn, and grow together! This year we will continue to SOAR as we work together to be Safe, Owners of Our Choices, Academic Achievers and Respectful! 

    On a more personal note, my husband and I have 5 children and 3 dogs. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, shoe shopping, and ordering eyeglasses!
