Plaza Principal Dr. Lezlee Ivy Announces Return to Classroom in 2018-2019

Plaza Middle School Principal Dr. Lezlee Ivy announced that she plans to step down from her principal position at the end of the 2017-2018 school year and return to the classroom.

Starting with the 2018-2019 school year, she will teach at the elementary level in the Park Hill School District. She said she will miss her colleagues at Plaza, but she made this decision because it will allow her to balance her work and family commitments.

Dr. Ivy came to Park Hill in 2002 as a teacher at Graden Elementary, after teaching in the Blue Valley Schools for seven years. She became a district instructional coach in 2006, and she became assistant principal at Plaza in 2008. She became Plaza’s principal in 2011. Dr. Ivy received the Exemplary Principal Award from the Greater Kansas City Missouri Principals Association in 2009, and that group gave her its Middle School Principal of the Year award in 2013.
