Mariemont City Schools Superintendent Steven Estepp announced on Monday that, pending final Board of Education approval, Ms. Courtney Miller will be named the next principal at Mariemont Elementary School. Miller, who has nearly two decades of educational experience, has spent the past 16 years as a kindergarten teacher at ME.
“I am thrilled to announce that Courtney Miller will be the next principal of Mariemont Elementary School,” said Estepp. “Courtney is a beloved and well-respected member of our Mariemont City Schools family who is well vested in the culture of ME. She has the experience and the leadership capabilities to head the staff, students and families of Mariemont Elementary and I am excited to see all that she accomplishes as our principal.”
During her time as a kindergarten teacher at ME, Miller has served several leadership roles and been a part of many district committees, including the yearlong Mariemont City Schools Emerging Leaders Fellowship, which she completed in the spring of 2024. She also has been a part of the district’s PBIS team, Instructional Leadership Team, Literacy Team and Olweus bully prevention teams. In the classroom, she has planned and implemented many programs to instruct our district’s youngest learners, including the Bridges, Fundations, Heggerty, Being a Writer and Little Spot curriculums.
Prior to joining the Mariemont City School District, she spent two years in Marblehead Public Schools in Massachusetts. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in early childhood education from Xavier University and a Master’s in teacher leadership from Concordia University of Chicago.
“Mariemont Elementary School has long been a building I have not only called home but had a deep affection for,” said Miller. “After years of teaching there, I am prepared to lead the building as its next principal. I am deeply committed to fostering a positive and inclusive school culture where all students feel valued, supported, and empowered to succeed. I believe that strong relationships with students, staff, parents, and the broader community are essential for the success of a whole school. I am keenly aware that Mariemont Elementary has a reputation for academic excellence and a strong sense of community and I am eager to contribute my leadership skills, passion for education, and dedication to student success at ME.”
Miller will be formally recommended as the principal of Mariemont Elementary to the Board of Education at its July 12 meeting. She takes over for Ericka Simmons who left the district earlier this summer to accept an assistant superintendent role with at Wyoming City Schools.
