Indian Valley Student and Teacher Recognized as Partners in Education Winners

A teacher and a student at Indian Valley Local Schools have been selected as November Partners in Education winners, a program run by the Ohio Lottery Commission. Fifth grader Zaron Dickey was a student All Star and seventh-grade teacher Aaron Hreha was recognized as a teacher of the month. Recipients of the program are selected each month for their hard work, dedication, and the difference they are making as students and teachers in the classroom and beyond.  


Dickey attends Port Washington Elementary School, one of the two elementary schools within the district. “Zaron has demonstrated excellence in academics, extracurricular activities, and involvement in the learning community,” said teacher Maria Demonte. “He challenges himself to reach high standards and expectations and frequently demonstrates positive behaviors inside and outside the classroom. Our learning community is a better place because of Zaron, his positive outlook and willingness to work toward reaching optimal levels of academic achievement.”


Hreha teaches seventh-grade science at Indian Valley Middle School. Jody Ditcher, Director of Learning at Indian Valley Local Schools said that Hreha is well respected and liked by his students. “When his colleagues need assistance with technology or just working through solutions to common problems teachers face on a day-to-day basis, Mr. Hreha humbly steps up and serves,” said Ditcher. “He is described as teaching a favorite class by many of his students. One student says that he is her favorite teacher because he leads ‘creative and open-ended projects.’”
