Hello Wildcat Country! I am thrilled to be a part of South Vermillion. I am married to my wife, Darby, and we have four sons, Colson, Garrett, Gibson, and Cooper. All of our boys attend South Vermillion Schools.
I graduated from Indiana State University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Middle School Mathematics. I also graduated from Indiana State University with a master's degree in Educational Administration and Supervision.
I am entering my 20th year in education. I started teaching at West Vigo Middle School as a mathematics teacher for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. While at West Vigo Middle, I also coached basketball and track. After 6 years of teaching, I transitioned into the Dean of Students role at West Vigo High School. I served as the Dean for 4 years before becoming the Assistant Principal at West Vigo High School for 1 year.
After leaving West Vigo, I made a few stops around Vigo County. I was the Assistant Principal at Chauncey Rose & Sarah Scott Middle School for one year, then the Assistant Principal at Honey Creek Middle School for 2 years and the Principal at Terre Town Elementary School for 2 years.
I have served as the Principal at South Vermillion High School for the last 3 years. It is a pleasure and a joy to serve in this community. I want South Vermillion High School to be recognized around the State of Indiana as one of the best. This will only happen if we are all working together. It is the responsibility of our staff, students, and parents to make sure SVHS is the very best!
Mr. Mark Schimmel
