My #IHPromise – creating a partnership with students and families that results in student success – every time. 


That was the immediate emotion that radiated from the staff at Indian Hill when I first came to the district. There was – and is – an absolute, authentic joy that exudes from our team. It is a joy that comes from genuine appreciation of the privilege of being called to help others become the very best versions of themselves – which is what defines the profession of education.

Your child is a unique individual; your child’s needs reach far beyond the academic growth I will help them to achieve, and I will be there for them as they develop socially and emotionally. Perhaps just as important – I want to do this alongside you, the parent. Together we will create a team that will ensure your child’s success.

Being a Brave means community. There is a closeness between the staff and students that is apparent. The very best part of my day always has been, and always will be, when your student walks in the door and I have the chance to greet them with a smile, and to share that authentic joy that serving them brings to my life.
