Welcome to McDowell
Vision: McDowell Loves Learning
Be Kind, Work Together, Do your Best and Be a Leader!
My name is Beth Trivelli and I am honored to be the principal of McDowell Early Learning School which serves the preschool and kindergarten students of Hudson. My educational background includes thirty-six years of experience spanning grades PreK-3 with a specific concentration in literacy development, special education, and early enrichment opportunities for young children. I earned my undergraduate degree from Miami University in Special Education. I became National Board Certified in Early Childhood Education, as well as earning my Masters in Early Childhood Education from Kent State University with an emphasis on literacy. I earned my EdS. in Educational Administration from Kent State University with a focus on creating engaging environments for all students. Throughout my career, I have taught first, second and third grades, as well as being an intervention specialist for mild and moderate special needs students. I have been involved in staff development, mentoring, presenting on best practices and teaching classes as an adjunct professor at Kent State and Ashland University.
I live in Kent with my husband of 35 years and I have two beautiful children. My son, Michael, graduated from Miami University with a degree in finance and he currently works in New York City as a financial analyst. My daughter, Angela, graduated from The Ohio State University with a double major in dance and social work. Angela is a fourth grade teacher in Austin, Texas.
Building partnerships with families and developing strong relationships with our students and the community is very important to McDowell. The staff and I will work to continue the legacy of success established at McDowell to provide the best possible opportunities to prepare our students to be world-class citizens ready to master the challenges of the 21st century while fostering a nurturing, safe environment for all children.
As principal, my door is always open and I welcome any input on new and innovative ideas to help each child reach his or her full potential. Please feel free to contact me at 330-653-1246 or via email at email@example.com
