Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Andrew Olejer

I am excited to begin my third year teaching at Woodgrove.  After teaching Gourmet Foods, Personal Finance and Introduction to Culinary Arts two years ago, the Culinary Program has grown.  I will have six classes of Introduction to Culinary Arts.   
Prior to coming to Woodgrove I was a dean for 12 years.  I spent 5 years at Blue Ridge MS, 3 years at Harmony MS, and 4 years at Harper Park.  I taught U.S. History at Harper Park MS before becoming a dean. I am certified/licensed in Family and Consumer Science, Social Studies and school administration. My wife is a music teacher at Catoctin Elementary and we have two boys Andy age 13 and Aiden age 11.  I coach for both ULYFL and ULLL.  We have an adorable Goldador named Nixie and we live in Hillsboro.  I am an avid cook and baker and plan to utilize my culinary skills with my classes.  I believe in utilizing fresh ingredients whenever possible.  I have an expansive garden that provides an abundance of fresh produce.  My hobbies include, saltwater fish keeping, gardening and when I have time, golf. 
 I truly enjoy getting to know students and parents.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  My email can be found by clicking my name on the main school page or you can always call the school.
