Mr. Thomas Eichenberg, Principal

It is a pleasure to be the principal at Parkside Elementary School. This is my thirteenth year serving the students and families of Parkside Elementary School.  I was fortunate to be the administrator who opened this building in 2001 for its first year of operation. 

     I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio.  I graduated from the University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio, with a Bachelor of Science degree and began teaching in Northern Indiana.  My Masters degree and Administrative Licensure was obtained from Indiana University.  I have worked at schools in Indiana and Virginia at all levels: elementary, middle, and high. 

     While working for the Spotsylvania County Schools, I have been the principal at Salem Elementary School and at Parkside Elementary School.  My wife Janet, is an English teacher at Post Oak Middle School within our school division.  I have two adult daughters and a son-in-law.  Alyssa and Andrew live in Spotsylvania, and my younger daughter Megan, lives in Arlington, Virginia. 

     I enjoy hockey and am a big Washington Capitals fan.  Spending time with my family, reading, and gardening are also pastimes. 

     I look forward to getting to work with your family.  Please contact me if you have suggestions, questions, or comments regarding Parkside Elementary School.  Have a great year!
