Principal's Welcome

  • As principal of Northview Intermediate School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website. Northview Intermediate School is a fourth grade through sixth grade school serving the community of Kodak, TN. We are pleased to offer you this website as a communication tool as one of many ways in which we interact with our parents, community, or those seeking more information about our school.

    It is an honor for me to be a member of an experienced staff that works so hard at giving each student an outstanding educational experience.  We are deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. NIS has a tradition of excellence in the classroom and beyond. Our teachers and staff continue to work with conviction to provide our students an excellent educational experience.  The quality of our staff is one of the reasons for our tradition of excellence. Equally important, is we have been blessed with parents who are committed to the understanding that education is the foundation of success for their child.

    As an educational team, we at Northview Intermediate School are dedicated to academic excellence and holding high expectations to ensure that each and every student will be a successful learner.  We are committed to creating a safe and positive learning environment where staff and students promote and model responsible, respectful behavior in order to provide each student the best learning opportunity.

    I would like to invite you to join our PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization).  This organization is vital in supporting the educational need of all students.  Parent and community involvement are critical to the success of our students. We welcome your involvement in your child’s educational experience and our school activities. We have an open door policy at NIS and parents are always welcome to call, email or stop by to meet with administration. We can also be followed on our Facebook page.

    Children are our most precious resource.  As principal of NIS, I am extremely proud to be a part of the educational development of your child.  On behalf of the entire staff, we are honored to teach, love and support all of our students. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns. I can be reached at (865) 933-7985 or
