Welcome to Eisenhower Elementary School! Eisenhower is a wonderful place where students are loved, supported, and challenged. Together we work hard, practice kindness, and have fun!
It is my pleasure to be Eisenhower's Principal and to get to work with the fabulous students, staff, parents, and Ike community members. Prior to coming to Eisenhower, I was a principal and assistant principal for the Valparaiso Community Schools. Previous to my administrative roles, I taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Title 1 remediation. I have a Master's Degree in Supervision and Administration from Indiana State University and received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University.
I believe that students need to feel safe and respected in order to learn. It is my goal, as the school principal, to create a safe and effective learning environment where students are engaged and excited learners as they become college and career ready. Positive relationships between all school stakeholders is essential in maximizing student success. Please feel free to contact me to ask questions and share ideas. I look forward to partnering with you!
