Brandy Bishop has been named the next principal of Country Heights Elementary School after holding various positions at Burns Elementary School for nearly 20 years. Bishop begins her new role on July 1.
Bishop started her educational career with Burns as a 5th grade teacher and taught various grade levels over the next 11 years. She became the school’s instructional coach in 2015, and has served as assistant principal for the last 4 years.
Since becoming assistant principal in 2019, Bishop has worked to maintain an effective learning climate in the school, evaluated instructional processes, and overseen the implementation of school-wide curriculums.
Bishop said she is looking forward to serving Country Heights with the same passion and dedication she brought to her past positions.
“Each day as CHES principal, I will lead with the intent to make a positive impact in the lives of those I serve. My focus will always remain on providing a learning environment where students and staff feel safe both physically and emotionally,” she said.
Bishop noted that Country Heights is rooted in a tradition of academic excellence and builds strong leaders in their students and staff and she plans to continue that same tradition.
Dr. Amy Shutt, Assistant Superintendent of Human Services for Daviess County Public Schools, said Bishop was identified as an outstanding leader who will continue to lead the school down that path of high academic achievement.
“Ms. Bishop is a student-focused, experienced leader, and an overall well-respected educator in our district. She will be a great addition to the elementary principal group,” Shutt said. “Brandy brings a wealth of knowledge of instruction and educating the whole child.”
