Hi, I'm Mr. Mark Overly!

  • This is my fifth year as principal at Carrcroft Elementary School, but my 10th as an administrator at Carrcroft. Prior to becoming an administrator I was a 4th grade teacher at P.S. duPont Elementary School. My goal is to help develop the whole child. To do this, we have implemented several initiatives, including mindfulness, Bookworms, PBS, Eureka math, STEM, robotics, and many more.

    Carrcroft prides itself in being a diverse school that serves all students. I have a lovely wife who teaches at Concord High School and three wonderful children. One is a second grader here at Carrcroft, and the other two will also be attending Carrcroft.

    I have been a Brandywine School District employee through my whole career. I truly believe in the motto to “embrace, inspire and challenge every student every day.”
