Meet the Assistant Principals

I am Ginger Davis. Being a graduate from Avon High School, I have seen a lot of positive changes in our school corporation, and I am excited about the growth our community has experienced. After graduating from Butler University with my Bachelor of Music, I taught music in IPS and Plainfield Community Middle Schools. While my three boys were in school, I decided to further my education to become a school counselor. As a school counselor, I had the opportunity to come back to Avon and assist with the opening of Avon Intermediate School. A few years later, I continued my education at Indiana University to get my certification in administration. In 2009, I took the opportunity to be a part of opening Avon Middle School North where I have served as the assistant principal for 13 years. My husband and I raised our three boys on the west side, and now we are proud residents of Avon. I look forward to meeting each of you and helping your children be successful here at North and in the future.
