My #IHPromise – share the magic of the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District. 

 

It was love at first sight.

The top was down; Frank Sinatra was up; the sky was clear blue, and my eyes were moving in amazement across the shadows created by the canopy of tall, green trees that hugged above me. The branches – mature enough to embrace each other from a distance – created a living tunnel over the road I was traveling for the first time – a road that runs through the heart of the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District. While I am originally from the Bluegrass State, that lush green surrounding me felt strangely familiar ... almost like home.

It was magical, and a moment I will never forget.

I knew I had discovered a special place. While that first date certainly made a lasting impression, my love of this amazing district has only grown deeper since joining the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District team; the more I learn about the people who work and live here – the more it feels like I am with family.  

For me, being a Brave means being a part of a team of professionals – including teachers, secretaries, custodians, bus drivers, and cafeteria workers – who are charged with creating magical, memorable moments for the creative, curious, caring students we are each fortunate to serve. This is a place where smiles are frequent, and questions embraced. This is a place where we are all cared for, and allowed to grow. This is the story I strive to share with our supportive community. 

The best part of my day continues to be driving into work, back down those roads I first fell in love with so many years ago – knowing that I am home.
