Bushelman new principal at Ninth District Elementary

Eddy Bushelman

Teachers and coaches at St. Bernard-Elmwood Place High School in the Greater Cincinnati area influenced Eddy Bushelman to become an educator.

“They pushed me to reach new heights -- to be a better player, student and person,’’ Bushelman said. “The positive impact that these coaches and teachers had on my life created a desire for me to do the same as an adult.’’ Bushelman, who has been teaching, leading schools and coaching for 15 years, has not lost the desire to help students to become better. Bushelman is the new principal of Ninth District Elementary School. Like his teachers, Bushelman wants to push Ninth District students to reach new heights. “As a teacher, I was always very involved in coaching high school athletics because I wanted to find a way to have a positive influence on more kids,’’ he said. “Being principal allows an opportunity to have a positive influence on even more kids.’’ Bushelman has served as a high school social studies teacher, assistant principal and assistant varsity coach for basketball, baseball and football in Warren County Schools in Bowling Green, Ky. He opened South Warren Middle School, where he was principal from November 2009 through July 2017. Bushelman, who is from the Cincinnati area, wanted to be closer to family and last year took a job as assistant principal at Erpenbeck Elementary School in Boone County. His new duties at Ninth District begin July 1. Alvin Garrison, superintendent of Covington Independent Public Schools, said Bushelman is a great fit for Ninth District.

“He brings an abundance of knowledge, experience and leadership to the job,’’ Garrison said. “We look forward to working with him.’’ Bushelman holds a bachelor’s degree from Morehead State University in addition to a Master’s, Rank I and Superintendent Endorsement from Western Kentucky University.

His philosophy of school leadership is characterized by having great people working in the building; demanding high expectations for self, students and staff; providing common directions for the school that everyone is working toward; and ensuring a structured learning environment that is conducive to learning. “But most importantly, we must create many opportunities for students that prepare them to be successful in a 21st century economy,’’ he said. Bushelman replaces Scott Shepherd, who resigned to spend more time with family.
