Ms. Zerbe selected as Calvert Middle School Teacher of the Year

Ms. Zerbe is a special education teacher in the Structured Learning Environment program at Calvert Middle School, where she has worked for the past four years. Her 11 years with CCPS include teaching in the same program at Southern Middle and in the Behavior Development Programs at Plum Point Middle School and Mill Creek Middle School.

Ms. Zerbe is a wonderful teacher who has grown into a teacher leader at Calvert Middle School. She is a data-driven teacher who now leads the behavior data team at CMS.

She recently prepared and presented a presentation to the staff on our school data. Ms. Zerbe also seeks out opportunities for her own growth and is always willing to come back and share her knowledge with others.

She is a perfect mentor teacher and always helps her colleagues with various tasks. She shows tremendous dedication to her students, organizing the Best Buddies program with them, and promoting autism awareness throughout the school.

Congratulations to Heather Zerbe for being selected as the Calvert Middle School Teacher of the Year for 2018.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
