Mr. Dionie Lum

Assistant Principal, 8th Grade Administrator

dionie.lum@bsd.k12.de.us

I remember being a student at Burnett middle school and the impact the teachers and administrators had on me as a student. Before attending middle school, I never gave any thought to being an educator. I honestly thought I would be a Wilmington fireman like my father. It was once relationships were established with teachers and administrators that I realized education is where I wanted to be. The opportunity to have a positive impact on students is an honor.

I have been with the Brandywine School District for over 20 years and I am excited about being here at Talley. As the 8th grade administrator, I look forward to supporting families and staff members as we encourage and prepare our students for both high school and life.

I am a proud husband, a father of three children, and a happy grandfather.

Mrs. Brittany Corrigan

Assistant Principal, 7th Grade Administrator

I was born and raised in Claymont. My early years of education were spent in the Brandywine School District. My time in Brandywine made such an impression that once I graduated from college I wanted to return to BSD as an educator. I have been a special education teacher at the elementary and middle levels, but my heart lives with Talley. I believe that schools should be at the center of the community, forming relationships with families and community members. I am excited about working with the students in a new capacity as the Assistant Principal. My goal is to help them grow developmentally and academically so they are prepared to reach their future goals.  

I can be found in the community with my husband and two children. I am extremely close to her family, who all reside in the Claymont community. I am a board member of the Ladies Auxillary at the Claymont Fire Company, was an active volleyball and softball coach for many years, and can be found on stage and behind for anything musical that happens at Talley. I am excited about beginning this new journey with my nephew as he joins the Talley family as well this year!
