St. Mary School’s Administrative Team

Nikki Ford, Principal

I am honored and blessed to be the principal at St. Mary School.  I have been at St. Mary School for the past 10 years and taught grades, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades.  I have earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Sociology from The Ohio State University in 1998, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University in 2011 and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Ohio Dominican University in 2018.  I have also obtained my Principal’s License and have assisted in various administrative duties throughout the years.  I have been married for 18 years and have a son and daughter that both have attended St. Mary School for elementary education and are now attending Bishop Watterson High School.  I enjoy sports, especially the Buckeyes, and Cleveland teams where I am originally from.  I also enjoy outdoor activities and  gathering with my large Italian family.

I am looking forward to continuing to work with such an amazing, dedicated group of teachers and staff and to continue on our traditions of faith and academic excellence.  St. Mary Community is a close-knit family that truly shows the love of Mary and our Catholic faith.  I welcome you to become a member of this wonderful community!
