Principal - Sandra Crowder

Hello, Laurel Meadow Lions!  I am excited to join the Laurel Meadow family and serve the students, teachers, staff, and families.  I have been an educator for 27 years, beginning as a second grade teacher at Pearson's Corner Elementary School, serving as gifted resource teacher at Elmont Elementary School, Pearson's Corner Elementary School, and John M. Gandy Elementary School, and teaching fourth and fifth grade at both John M. Gandy Elementary School and Pearson's Corner Elementary School. I have also served as Coordinator of Gifted Programs for Hanover County Public Schools, Principal of Randolph Elementary School in Goochland County and, most recently, as Assistant Principal of Washington-Henry Elementary School in Hanover.  I have two children; Eric is a rising freshman at VCU, and Caroline is a rising  senior at Longwood University.  I live in Hanover County with my  two cats, Albus and Severus, and a Basset Hound named Lily.  I am an avid fan of the Harry Potter series, Star Wars, and other fantasy/sci-fi fiction.  I am  very excited to be a LION!  

If, at any time, you need assistance then please contact me at (804) 723-2040 or email me at  I look forward to partnering with you.

Assistant Principal - Will Brizendine

Greetings Lions!   I am proud and excited to join the Laurel Meadow family.  I am entering my 17th year in education, all of which have been previously spent in Henrico County.  My first five years as an educator were spent teaching 2nd and 3rd grade.  I then spent four years as an elementary Instructional Technology Resource Teacher, before transitioning to the middle school level, where I spent three years as the Coordinator of Assessment and Remediation at Hungary Creek Middle School. I have spent the past four years serving as Associate Principal at Pinchbeck Elementary School.  I am the proud father of two amazing children.  Jack is a sophomore attending the Advanced College Academy at J.R. Tucker High School, and Macy is a fifth grader at Jackson Davis Elementary, both in Henrico County.  I am a long suffering Washington Redskins fan and a diehard supporter of VCU basketball, my alma mater.  I also enjoy reading political thrillers, Broadway shows, and listening to live music. 

I am excited to join Hanover County Public Schools and I look forward to working with and serving the students, staff, and community of Laurel Meadow. If I can be of assistance at any time, donít hesitate to contact me.
