Tucker Birkhead is excited to be the very first Vice Principal at the Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center. He earned his undergraduate degree at New York University and his Masters from Cabrini College, and he is currently on hiatus from the doctoral program at Neumann University.

Tucker began his educational career by completing his student teaching experience at Downingtown High School. He then went on to teach Reading and Writing at St. Gabriel’s Home for Court-Adjudicated Youth followed by six years as an English teacher at Upper Darby High School. In 2003, he returned to his educational roots and became an English teacher at Downingtown West. In 2009, he entered into Administration as an assistant principal at Lionville Middle School. He loved his job there but could not turn down the opportunity to open a brand new and truly cutting edge school.

Tucker and his wife, Danielle, have two dogs, three cats, and two guinea pigs—oh and they also have three children who all attended Downingtown schools.  Their youngest, Catie, currently attends Downingtown East High School. 

Tucker is a huge fan of Game of Thrones, loves to read all kinds of books, and watches a lot of British police dramas with his wife.
