Principal's Message

Dwon Bush
Principal Monticello


Dear Monticello Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself, Mrs. Dwon Bush, as the new principal of Monticello Elementary School. I hear that Monticello has the best and brightest students in the district and I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve as their principal!  I am committed to ensuring your child is receiving top notch academic instruction daily.  This is a responsibility that I take seriously!  Being a principal, in my opinion, is a lifestyle, not just a job!

I come to Monticello with seventeen years of educational experience as a teacher, principal, and high school administrator.  After graduating from Wright State University, I started my teaching career in Mecklenburg County School District in Charlotte, North Carolina.  After a year, I returned home to family and I have spent the past sixteen years working in Dayton Public Schools. 

The Monticello staff has embraced me with open arms and I’m excited to be a Huber Heights Warrior.  Prior to the beginning of the school year, I had the pleasure of meeting a few of my students as they played on the playground or while they were riding their bikes through the parking lot.  They spoke highly of their school and their love for the staff.  I feel incredibly blessed to be the leader of Monticello staff! This group of gifted professionals are committed to the academic success of all of our students.

My vision for Monticello is to continue the successful path we are already on and to further enhance the learning environment for our students.  I believe when you walk into a school you should see a place where students are the main focus.  Their academic footprint should be apparent and you should see a reflection of them throughout the building.  This is what I looked for when my children attended school and I want nothing less for your child as well. 

 Parents, you are a vital part of your child’s school community! I encourage you to participate in our PTO, visit your child’s classroom and communicate with your child’s teacher.  Lend a hand by volunteering; participate in family events and attend school functions.  Your voice will always be heard. My door will always be open to the families of Monticello.  I look forward to working with you to make Monticello an exceptional center point of our community. 

Our door is always open; please feel free to come on in!
