My #IHPromise – to work relentlessly with my team, and with you as our partner, to help shape your child into an outstanding scholar and incredible citizen.

 

It is my privilege to be the first to welcome you to the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District; I say that I am the “first” because Indian Hill Primary School is – for many Braves – the gateway to the district. This is the place where your child’s academic career truly begins. What I want you to know: Your child is in excellent hands. 

Our professionals authentically care about your child as if they were our own. We create a nurturing environment dedicated to innovative learning for your child, and our team is never satisfied with status quo; our educators are continuous learners – always researching different approaches to growing students both academically and socially, and always on the lookout for best practice. 

We understand that you are your child’s first teacher; at Indian Hill Primary School – you are treated as a partner in the formal education of your child. Your input is valued and sought. Being a Brave is about building these relationships, and becoming part of a community. Our parents care about all of our students, our teachers work to ensure every child in our school succeeds, and our students enjoy learning and working collaboratively with their peers.

In the 20-plus years I have dedicated to serving students in early childhood education, my favorite moment each day remains the same – when I am with your child engaged in conversation about what they are learning. Seeing their excitement … well, that makes this the best job ever. 

Welcome to the family.
