• Principal's Message

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    I am honored to serve as the principal of Brantwood Elementary. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. 

    I grew up in Springfield, Ohio, about 30 minutes east of Dayton.  I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Wright State University in Middle Childhood Education.  After spending 9 glorious years teaching 5th grade with Mrs. Kelley at Spinning Hills, I finished my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Dayton and became an administrator.   

    My husband (Ted) and I have two daughters; we enjoy spending time together as a family and are blessed to be part of the Riverside community. As the daughter of a teacher and granddaughter of a superintendent, I come from a legacy of educators.  I wholeheartedly believe that education is of paramount importance.  I love my job and I look forward to getting to work together with you to build a community of thinkers and responsible citizens.  

    Our staff members consistently focus on helping our students grow into responsible, respectful community members who have the skills and desire to be lifelong learners and contributors. We are committed to providing highly effective instruction that leads to strong student learning and growth. We continue to innovate our instructional programs to include a STEAM focus (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math.

    A strong emphasis on literacy and math leads our instruction and professional growth throughout the school year.  In addition, we have a strong foundation in Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), which guides our approach to teaching positive behaviors and celebrating the great accomplishments of our students. 

    Thank you for visiting, and please feel free to contact us with any questions.
