Principal's Corner

Welcome to the 2014/15 school year!

Stowers Parents & Sponsors:

 I am very proud to be named as the new principal at Stowers. I have worked for DoDEA for five years, all of which were spent at Ft. Knox. With the reorganization going on there, I was relocated to Ft. Benning this summer, and have landed in a wonderful school. I have a total of 23 years in education, teaching students in grades 6-12 for fourteen years before entering administration. I have taught all four core subject areas, special education, and adult education. All of my work as a building principal has been at the elementary level. I am married, with two grown children out on their own and a very loyal Dalmatian at home.

 I was born on an Air Force base in Ohio and currently have a son serving in the Marine Corps, so I have a great appreciation for our nation's military. I am honored to work every day in a position that allows me in some small way to support the mission of our soldiers as well as prepare students to be "future ready."

 This coming school year we will continue to focus our efforts on improving our students' writing across the curriculum as well as their ability to solve problems in math. To help us reach that goal, you will see our students and staff engaged in a stronger emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities throughout the school year. We were very fortunate to secure a teaching position devoted exclusively to STEM. That teacher will not only teach STEM lessons, but she will also assist all Stowers' faculty in becoming more proficient in our STEM instruction.

 I make it a point to be available to parents & students throughout the day. Please do not hesitate to call or email me (todd.kreider@am.dodea.edu) should you have a question or concern.If I am not able to answer your question, I'll find the person that can.

I look forward to working with you and your students!
