Dr. Gerry Fitzpatrick-Doria


Welcome to Elkins Park School...home of the eagles!

I am Gerry Fitzpatrick-Doria, proud Principal of EP. Thank you for visiting us and for your interest in Cheltenham School District. I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about our school and the people and programs that make Elkins Park School such a great place for fifth and sixth graders to learn and grow.

Learning, reflection, and continuous growth comprise a huge part of who I am. I am a life-long learner and have been passionately committed to my work in the field of education for more than 25 years. I have proudly been an elementary and middle school teacher, a reading specialist, a school-based teacher leader, an academic coach, a staff development specialist, an elementary principal and an instructor at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

My work as Principal is supported by Elkins Park School Vice Principal, Ms. Lynn Trumbette, and a team of dedicated teachers and support staff. Together, we strive to create a safe and happy learning environment for all students. Our collaboration produces engaging instructional experiences and memorable social opportunities. Supporting us in this endeavor is a vibrant PTO and a team of dedicated volunteers. Collectively, we make Elkins Park School a special place for students to learn and grow.
