Adam Herb is a fourth grade homeroom teacher who particularly loves teaching creative writing and hands-on math activities. He uses fantasy football in the classroom to hone mental math skills in the fall and he leads an after-school drum circle club in the spring. Mr. Herb also enjoys helping Gilman on the admissions committee as the host classroom for visiting fourth grade students.
Mr. Herb received his B.S. from the University of Maryland, then earned an M.A. in curriculum design. He worked for the Baltimore County Public Schools for 12 years teaching third and fifth grades before coming to Gilman in 2008.
Mr. Herb enjoys spending time with his wife and two children when they're not all at school. During his free time, he likes playing drums in the band, "Teachers for Sale," and his hobbies include mountain biking, road cycling, writing, listening to music, and playing fantasy football.

Your most memorable teacher:
Mr. Cassidy, my 6th grade science teacher. He had high expectations, but was still fair, funny, creative, and knowledgeable about his subject. I hope my students would say the same of me!
