Mrs. Susan Tinich

I am so excited for the opportunity to be working with the Eudora Elementary staff, students, parents, and community members.  This will be my 22nd year in education.  My first 11 years were in Louisburg where I taught 4th, 1st, and 5th grades.  After that I moved to a school district in Missouri and served as their elementary principal for 10 years.  

I acquired my bachelor's degree at Ottawa University in Elementary Education.  After teaching for four years, I went back for my master's degree, which I received from Pittsburg State Univerisity in Educational Leadership.  I am currently working on the completion of my doctorate through UMKC in Educational Foundation, Policy, and Leadership.  

My husband and I live in Lenexa.  My husband is a teacher within the Shawnee Mission School District.  We have two sons.  The oldest one just graduated from Wichita State University in PreMed.  Our youngest son just graduated from high school and will be attending the Univerisity of Arkansas and plans to study International Business.  

What drives me is the growth and development of our students; academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally.  All decisions made will be based around the premise of what is best for our students.  I look forward to working with each of you as we work collaboratively to ensure the success of our students!  I am excited and honored to be a part of the Eudora Family!
