Hi, I'm Mr. Mark Overly!

  • This is my 8th year as principal at Carrcroft Elementary School, but my 13th 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. I have a fourth and first grader here at Carrcroft, and the other will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. 

    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.”
