Principal's Message

Teri Crussen
Iddings Elementary Principal

Dear Iddings Families,

As the Principal of Homer Iddings Elementary School, I am both excited and honored to work with such a terrific staff. I am amazed by the shared purpose which has guided my own leadership: Every child, every day, whatever it takes!

It is our mission as a school community:

  • To empower our students to become lifelong learners who actively strive to meet the state academic standards.

  • To guide students to be responsible and to make socially acceptable decisions.

  • To encourage the development of students’ academic, creative, emotional, physical and social abilities by providing a safe, positive, respectful environment.

Ongoing communication is very important. The Merrillville Community School district utilizes a program called Skyward for communication regarding grading, discipline, and attendance. We are asking all parents to download the Skyward application and log in to access all of this information. Please check the settings so you will receive notifications. Positive communication between staff and families is essential for promoting student success. 

I look forward to working with our families this year. As a staff, we will continue to review and develop strong educational programs so that we continue to help students reach their full potential. I have been inspired by the strong collaboration and commitment to student learning at Homer Iddings Elementary School. Together, we can ensure that we are all learning and growing together.



Mrs. Crussen
