Trish Lannon, Principal Trish_Lannon@hcpss.org
I am very happy to be a part of the FRES community! I am a product of Howard County schools, having attended Phelps Luck ES, Ellicott City MS (now called Ellicott Mills MS), and Howard HS. I have 2 degrees from Towson University - the first was in Art with a focus on graphic design and photography and the second degree was in elementary education. I taught 1st grade at Clemens Crossing ES for 3 years and completed my Master's degree in Administration & Supervision during that time. I then moved to Ilchester ES for 7 years, where I taught 2nd grade, Media and then 5th grade. It was my pleasure to serve as the 5th grade team leader for 4 years before being promoted to Assistant Principal. During my 15 years as an AP, I served the communities at West Friendship ES, Stevens Forest ES, Pointers Run ES and Guilford ES. After 3 years as an AP at Guilford ES, I was promoted to principal and served in that role there for 2 years before coming to FRES. When I am not at FRES, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, and doing arts & crafts. My biggest passion is giving back, and I spend a lot of time doing advocacy work for colorectal cancer helping survivors, caregivers, and their families. I love that I am able to apply what I have learned from my work in advocacy to serving the community of Forest Ridge ES.

Hello Forest Ridge Community! I am excited to begin my sixth year at Forest Ridge. I look forward to developing a partnership with Mrs. Lannon to make Forest Ridge the best year yet. This will be my 10th year as an administrator and my 26th year in Howard County. I began my career at Deep Run Elementary teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades before being promoted to Assistant Principal at both Deep Run and Ducketts Lane Elementary School. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Maryland and my Master’s Degree from Johns Hopkins University. During my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and visiting family in CA. I am an avid sports fan and attend as many University of Maryland football and basketball games as possible. I look forward to continuing to build relationships here at FRES.

Forest Ridge: By the Numbers!

1992- The year Forest Ridge opened its doors to the first group of students. Originally, the school was designed to eventually become a community center in case population growth in the area didn’t reach projections. Instead, population growth in the area has exceeded expectations leading to the need for other schools in the area to be built.
