This school year, CHS welcomes a new face to the administration: Roger Christopher Wilde. Mr. Wilde is substituting for assistant principal Anne Kress, who will be out on maternity leave for two months and return in November. 

Mr. Wilde has worked for BCPS for thirty-two years as a teacher, department chair, and administrator. For thirty years he worked at Lansdowne High. He retired and now works as a substitute assistant principal. 

“This is the fifth school where I have substituted,” Mr. Wilde said. 

His role is different than that of a regular substitute teacher since he doesn’t teach lessons for his two months here. Instead, he does the jobs of Mrs. Kress, many of which include managing the senior class.  

“She is responsible for their attendance and helping to make sure they graduate on time,” Mr. Wilde explained. 

Observing Social Studies and English teachers and participating in committee meetings are also in his job description. Clearly, there’s a lot of work in filling Mrs. Kress’ shoes; and Mr. Wilde does it all while enjoying his time here.   

“This is the largest building I’ve been in,” explained Mr. Wilde, “But it doesn’t feel like that. It feels like a small community”.    

Specifically, he has noticed the bonds between members of CHS. 

“The students and teachers get along; they hug each other in the hallway, and they care about each other. You don’t always find that in every school,” he noted.
