Principal's MessageWelcome to Trebein Elementary, Home of the Timberwolves!
I have lived in the Dayton area my whole life. I loved growing up in Kettering and enjoy the lifelong friends I made there. I graduated from Fairmont East High School in 1983. I went on to Miami University, where I earned a B.S. in Business with a major in Finance. I thought I wanted to be a stock broker. (Although, the fact that I tutored at the elementary school in Oxford just “for fun” should have been a clue to myself as to what I should have been studying.) Shortly after graduation, I married my high school sweetheart, Ty. I quickly realized that the world of Finance was not for me, and I decided to go back to school for a Master’s Degree. By this time I had figured out that Education was more than something “fun” for me – it was my passion. I attended The University of Dayton while raising two little ones. I earned a Master’s in Teaching and was hired by Beavercreek Schools to teach fifth grade at Valley. After teaching fifth grade for one year, I moved to sixth grade at Valley. I stayed there four more years then transitioned with sixth grade to the middle school where I continued teaching sixth grade at Ankeney Middle School for five years. During this time, I worked on another Master’s Degree – this time in Educational Leadership. I had the opportunity to serve Main Elementary School as a Principal Intern for one year. The following year, I was brought back to Valley Elementary School where I was the principal for nine years. This is my third year as Principal at Trebein Elementary School, and I absolutely love it!
Ty and I have lived in Beavercreek for 24 years now. He is an Air Reserve Technician at Wright-Patterson AFB. Our children attended Valley, Ankeney, and BHS where they both had wonderful educational experiences! Our daughter Alex is now a School Psychologist for Beavercreek Schools. Our son Casey is attending WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine. Ty and I have a beautiful granddaughter, June, who has stolen our hearts!
I truly look forward to coming to school each day. Working at Trebein is like a dream come true! When I am not at school, you will likely find me either walking my big Bloodhound Duke, running, or going to Zumba. I also sneak over to visit my little granddaughter every chance I get!
I truly feel that student success hinges on all of us working together. Please know that I value your input, and I am always happy to talk with you.
Thank you for sharing your children with us!
