M.Ed., Ohio State University
In 2014, SPA welcomed Holly Fidler as the Lower School Principal. A native of Cleveland, Ms. Fidler attended St. George's School, a boarding school in Rhode Island for grades 9-12. She continued her education at Emory University where she earned a B.A. in French. After completing her undergrad, Ms. Fidler returned to her home state where she graduated from Ohio State University with a Master's degree in Elementary Education. She has since taught French, English, language arts, and social studies in both lower and middle school settings. She comes to SPA from an independent, all girls school called the Laurel School. At Laurel, Ms. Fidler was first a Grade 3 teacher and, then, the Director of the North Star Collaborative, a signature program and partnership between Laurel and the Cleveland public schools. She also served on the school's administrative leadership team. According to Head of School Bryn S. Roberts, Ms. Fidler was the unanimous choice of the search committee. "[Ms. Fidler's] extensive classroom and administrative experience will be of great benefit to the SPA community," he says.
