Welcome to Trebein Elementary, Home of the Timberwolves!
Although we are a new school, Trebein has proven to be a
very special place indeed! Our 650 incredible students and enthusiastic staff
have created an environment where taking care of one another and striving for
academic excellence are the norm. As you walk the hallways at Trebein, not only
will you take note of our beautiful and energy efficient building, but you will
be truly impressed with the many hands-on activities, small group learning
experiences, and rigorous content being taught by caring professionals. You
will also notice that our students are some of the most polite and well-behaved
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!
