BEAVERCREEK – Nothing sparks excitment than a new principal to oversee learning. EG Shaw Elementary welcomed Susan Peveler as its new principal.
“I’ve been so impressed with the climate and culture of this district and the academic excellence,” said Peveler. “I’m so glad to be a part of the team. I’m looking forward to leading Shaw and getting to know all of you more. Together, we will continue the excellent traditions of Shaw Elementary School.”
She comes from White Oak Middle School in Hamilton County where she was an assistant principal. This position paved the way to her new position in Beavercreek.
She was also a gifted intervention specialist and teacher for the Monfort Heights Elementary in Cincinnati and also taught in Virginia. She began her dream of being a teacher with teaching second and sixth grade. After the events of 9/11, she moved back to Ohio and began teaching in the Northwest local school district for several years. She then moved to Monfort Heights Elementary as an administrator before White Oak Middle School.
She received her degrees from Old Dominion University and the University of Cincinnati. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in human services counseling and Master’s degree in educational leadership.
“The two areas of primary focus at Shaw are academic excellence and celebrating good character. With regard to academic excellence, I am proud to say that our school has received an Excellent rating from the Ohio Department of Education for the past 10 consecutive years,” Principal Peveler said. “Our teachers are highly qualified and our support staff is dedicated to the success of all students. For that, I’m very proud.”
In her spare time, Peveler loves photography and gardening. Occasionally, she will try to find a way to incorporate those skilled into the curriculum for fun activities. She has also previously helped with extra-activities such as swimming, drama club, power of the pen, newspaper, strategic games club, and the National Junior Honor Society.
With her career experience and her love to teach children, Principal Peveler is excited to be part of the Beavercreek family and community.
