BUCYRUS NAMES NEW ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL – The Bucyrus City School District Board of Education approved Erica Dietzel as the new Elementary School Principal during their regular meeting June 25.
Dietzel returns to Ohio after serving 12 years in the 10th largest school district in the country, Orange County Public Schools in Florida, as a teacher and building administrator.
“I love curriculum and working with all staff and students to promote student success,” Dietzel said. “I believe that to have a successful building, everyone must have a centralized vision and mission to follow.”
Dietzel received her Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Heidelberg College in 2003. She earned a Master of Science in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University in 2009.
“For the past 3 years, I had the privilege of being a building site administrator for a new campus in the Orange County Public Schools,” Dietzel said. “The unique part about this particular campus was that it served as a pilot for two new curriculum programs, as well as a digital pilot for the state of Florida.”
