I have been in Perry Township since 1996 and have an undergraduate and graduate degree from Indiana University and an administrator’s license from University of Indianapolis. I’ve taught 1st and 2nd grade, Adult GED classes, worked as a media specialist, technology staff developer, and as a district supervisor for media and intervention programs. I have twin 22 year old daughters who are in their senior year of college and a 27 year old son. I enjoy traveling, reading, hiking, and spending time with my family, friends, and Izzy. I’m very proud to be a part of this wonderful program and honored to lead this dedicated and talented staff.
My real name is Israel and my friends call me Izzy. I had a career change from the Leader Dog for the Blind program and am a facility dog for the Preschool. I was trained in the Women’s Prison through the Indiana Canine Assistant Network. I know lots of commands but I’m best at being friends with everyone in the preschool. I love coming to work every day with my friend, Ms. Holtzman and spending time with all my preschool friends.
This is my 2nd school year with Perry Township Preschool as the treasurer. I’ve previously worked in accounting, sales and purchasing which has helped prepare me for my position here. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 2 children and 2 granddaughters. They are the age of our preschoolers here and the joy of my life. I love the simple things with them like going to the park, baking cupcakes or watching their favorite movies. (Moana over and over again!)
