Deer Park Schools Hires Assistant Principal at Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School
Madeira Middle School’s Shane Hartley to start in August 2016
The Deer Park Community City School District (DPCCSD) Board of Education today announced Mr. Shane Hartley, teacher at Madeira Middle School, as the new assistant principal at Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School.
"Shane comes to Deer Park with over 15 years of classroom experience, which gives him the unique ability to empathize with and encourage our junior and senior high school students and staff. With Shane’s leadership roles both inside the classroom and on the field, he will have no problem connecting with the staff and students at Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School. I am pleased to introduce Shane Hartley to the Deer Park family," said Jeff Langdon, Superintendent of Deer Park Community City School District.
After receiving his Bachelor of Science in mathematics from Centre College and a Masters of Educational Leadership from the University of Cincinnati, Hartley spent the next 15 years a seventh grade math teacher for both Madeira Middle School and Finneytown Secondary Campus. In addition to his middle school teaching responsibilities, Hartley served as the Madeira Middle School Math Department Instructional Leader, he was the varsity football defensive coordinator at Madeira High School, and he is the chairman of the “That’s My Boy” award for Southwest Ohio Football Coaches Association.
“I'm thankful and excited for the opportunity to join the Deer Park team. Deer Park has always been a community that rallies around its schools, and I'm looking forward to serve the Wildcats in meaningful ways,” said Shane Hartley.
As the new assistant principal, Hartley will take on roles in instructional leadership, student services, and student engagement. Hartley’s proven commitment to academic excellence and teamwork will ease his transition from the classroom to the assistant principal’s office. As Hartley moves into the assistant principal role, he will not have to go far for advice as his father, Terry Hartley, served the district for 35 years as a mathematics teacher, football coach, and athletic director.
“Shane will be a great addition to the Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School staff, which is already a phenomenal group of educators and leaders. I know Shane will be welcomed with open arms and I’m excited to see what his experiences will bring to the table,” said Dr. Stace Orso, principal at Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School.
Achieving Excellence Together!
