Superintendent Steven Estepp announced on Thursday that Holly Zimmerman will be named the next Dean of Students at Mariemont Elementary School.
Zimmerman comes to Mariemont City Schools from the Milford Exempted Village School District where she served as a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) coach, helping teachers through the MTSS process with a focus on data and tier one academic skills, behaviors and targeted interventions. In this role, she coached classroom teachers on how to best meet the individual needs of students.
Prior to taking over as the MTSS coach, Zimmerman spent eight years in various school districts teaching science and social studies to students in third through eighth grade.
“We are excited to have Holly join our Mariemont Elementary School family and team,” said ME principal Ericka Simmons. “Holly’s emphasis on building positive relationships with the students, staff and parents, combined with her strong leadership skills, will be a great addition to our ME puzzle!”
Zimmerman, a native of Batavia, Ohio, earned her Bachelor of Arts from Northern Kentucky University in 2013, completed her Masters of Educational Leadership from the University of Cincinnati in 2021 and currently holds a PK-12 principal license. She resides in Milford, Ohio, with her husband, Michael, and their 10-month-old son, Krew.
"I am delighted to become a member of the Mariemont community as the Dean of Students at Mariemont Elementary,” said Zimmerman. “It is truly an honor and privilege to be entrusted with this role. My dedication lies in cultivating a collaborative and supportive learning environment, where each student's unique potential is not only acknowledged but also nurtured to its fullest extent. I look forward to building strong relationships and working closely with each teacher, student and family at Mariemont Elementary, ensuring that the educational experience of each student is nothing short of exceptional.”
Zimmerman replaces Aaron Pfeffenberger, who was announced as the new principal of Mariemont Junior High School last month.
