The Spring Hill School Board hired Tammy Endecott as the new principal for Spring Hill Intermediate School on May 15.
She will start work on July 1.
Endecott replaces Rod Sprague, current Spring Hill Intermediate School principal
Sprague will replace Principal Steve Fleer at the middle school.
Fleer will then become principal at Spring Hill High School.
Endecott taught fifth grade a Prairie Creek Elementary from 2005-10.
“I am delighted to be returning to the Spring Hill School District,” she said. “From top to bottom, the focus in the district is on doing what is best for students. As an educator, that philosophy ensures students achieve academically and also grow as a whole person.”
Endecott has a bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Mary and master’s degrees in educational administration and curriculum and instruction from Emporia State University.
She started her career as a classroom teacher in the Leavenworth School District.
Her previous administration experience includes serving as principal of a preschool-grade two building in Overbrook.
“It is wonderful to have someone like Tammy return to our district,” said Superintendent Bart Georing. “Students and staff will benefit from her leadership, and she will help the district successfully move through future building transitions.”
Endecott will become principal of Spring Hill Elementary School when the new Wolf Creek Elementary opens in 2013.
At that time, Spring Hill Elementary will become a pre-school through fifth grade building and the current intermediate school will become a sixth grade building.
Michelle Toon, current principal of Spring Hill Elementary School, will transfer to Wolf Creek Elementary when it opens in 2013.
