Nancy Grasmick
Former Maryland Public Schools Superintendent

Dr. Nancy S. Grasmick was the State Superintendent of Maryland Public Schools for 20 years—from 1991 until 2011—serving 24 districts, 1,424 schools and 869,113 students. She was both the first female superintendent in Maryland history and the longest-serving appointed superintendent in U.S. history.

Throughout her career, which began as a classroom teacher at the William S. Baer School for the Deaf in Baltimore City, Dr. Grasmick has been guided by the belief that every child deserves an exceptional education. She has fought to establish high expectations for teaching and learning in every Maryland classroom, pioneering bold policies and reforms to ensure success and implementing strong accountability structures to measure it.

As a result, expectations and performance for adults, schools and children significantly improved—for five years in a row, Maryland was ranked #1 in the country by Education Week.

In 2012, Dr. Grasmick was named the Presidential Scholar for Innovation in Teacher and Leader Preparation at her alma mater, Towson University, where she collaborates with national experts and practitioners to transform the way that teachers deliver classroom instruction and engage students in learning.

She is also Vice President of the Board and a faculty member at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, co-directing an innovative fellowship program to prepare administrators as leaders in special education.

Dr. Grasmick received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Towson University, her master’s degree in deaf education from Gallaudet University, and her doctoral degree in communicative sciences from Johns Hopkins University.
