 Getting To Know Principal Snedden

Deborah Snedden has been the Principal at Jane Ball Elementary School since the beginning of the 2013-2014 academic year.  Mrs. Snedden is a native of Crete, Illinois with a special tie to Cedar Lake.  Her husband, Mark Snedden, is a former Hanover alumni.  They are the parents of a blended family of seven and currently reside in Crown Point.

Prior to becoming the Principal of Jane Ball, Mrs. Snedden served as the Curriculum Director at Hammond Academy of Science and Technology, following fifteen years of teaching in the Crown Point schools.  She is a graduate of Crete-Monee High School with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Purdue Calumet and a Master’s in Educational Administration from Ball State.  Mrs. Snedden has been a presenter at professional development workshops and has worked with the Education Department at Purdue Calumet to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning to life at Jane Ball. 

As she walks through the halls of Jane Ball the students smile and high five’s are the norm rather than the exception.  “I’m here to make sure these kids are 21st century learners.  What they’ll need to know to succeed in life starts right here,” said Snedden.   “I have a passion for collaborating with students, teachers and parents.”
