GREENSBURG – Greensburg Elementary School (GES) Assistant Principal Ed Daihl has been selected as the 2013 Elementary Assistant Principal by the Indiana Association of School Principals (IASP) for District 10.
Daihl has been the assistant principal at Greensburg Elementary for 10 years, though he has worked in the Greensburg school system his entire career. He did his undergraduate work at Marion University, received his Masters of Education degree from IUPUC and his Education Specialist degree from IUPUI. His educational career began at Jerman School in 1974, where he taught sixth grade for six years. Daihl became the principal of Washington School in 1980 and was there for 22 years. He served as the principal for kindergarten and first grade at Billings School for two years before moving to GES in 2004.
“I’ve worked for Greensburg Schools for 40 years. I taught for six years and I’m now finishing my 34th year as a school administrator,” Daihl told the Daily News.
GES Principal Rock Linville seems to be thrilled with Daihl’s work in his role as a school administrator. He spoke with the Daily News Wednesday about Daihl’s upcoming award.
“Mr. Daihl has been the assistant principal at the elementary school for the last ten years and he’s just done an outstanding job. We couldn’t ask for a better candidate to represent our school,” Linville said.
It’s not just the staff at GES that appreciate all Daihl does for the school. A fourth grade student at GES wrote a letter to IASP recommending Daihl as the assistant principal of the year.
“Mr. Daihl is very nice and talks to all of the students at GES. He visits our classrooms to see what we are working on, greets students in the morning and helps with student dismissal. I have even seen him working in the cafeteria during lunch cleaning dishes. He makes our school a safe place to be,” she wrote.
