Principal's Message

Principal message

I hope you had a restful holiday and a happy new year! My name is Mike Robison and I have the privilege of serving as Patricksburg Elementary School’s new Principal. Mr. Norris recently accepted another position in a neighboring district and I know that we all wish him well in that endeavor. I will continue to provide your student with the same level of compassion and care that he did. I have included some information about myself below.
I  began my career in public service in 2009. After working for WorkOne as a Business Consultant, I was offered the opportunity to teach Career Information and Exploration (JAG) at Northview High School and Cumberland Academy in Brazil, Indiana.  I served as a classroom teacher from 2011-2013, before being promoted to manage the JAG program in six western Indiana counties.  In 2014, I returned to teaching when I was offered the opportunity to teach 7th and 8th grade Science and 7th grade Social Studies at Shakamak Jr./Senior High School in Jasonville, IN.  In February 2017, I accepted a position as the Assistant Principal at Owen Valley Middle School. In 2018, my role was expanded to cover 9th grade at Owen Valley High School as well.    normal;background:white'> normal;background:white'>I hold a Bachelor's degree in History, a Master’s degree in Political Science, a Specialist’s degree in Educational Leadership. Most recently, I completed a Doctorate in Education in 2018. normal;background:white'> normal;background:white'>I reside in Brazil, Indiana with my daughter, Eleanor (Ellie). Ellie is five years old. I am looking forward to working with elementary students. My background as a rural educator fills me with optimism for PES. I know that with your assistance and support that our team at Patricksburg will continue to ensure that your child receives an excellent education in a safe and nurturing environment. I am looking forward to working with the parents/guardians, students, and staff at PES.
