Marianne Traskey Kozlowski '95
Marianne Traskey Kozlowski, a graduate of the Class of 1995, is starting her 11th school year in the Archdiocese of Baltimore as the new Principal of St. Stephen School in Bradshaw, MD.
Prior to coming to St. Stephen School, she worked at Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Towson and Saint Margaret School in Bel Air. Marianne lives in Bel Air with her husband, Ted, and their two daughters, Abby and Kate.
“I went to the University of Dayton, that's also where I met my husband. We both have a very large love of Catholic schools. I think because of our collegiate experience which again, I go back to, if I didn't have that (John Carroll) high school experience, I wouldn't have the collegiate experience. I have degrees in elementary and special education from the University of Dayton. We lived in Ohio for several years and during that time my father unexpectedly passed away. I was 24 years old. And it was that faith piece, that as a 24-year-old, you didn't really know you had it till you needed it. “
“At the end of the day, you come in, you learn your academics, you end up with your report card with your diploma, but what sets any school in the Archdiocese apart from others is our Catholic faith. We should be able to feel it. We should be able to see it. We should be able to hear it. I love that when we walk into all of these schools, because that's what sets us apart, and that's such a gift that we're able to have that, because that is what makes us unique.”
Marianne lives in Bel Air with her husband, Ted, and their two daughters, Abby and Kate.
