Jeron Blood, Principal


Hello, Niles community!  I look forward to continuing to serve in the Niles school district this year and beyond. I am currently serving as the Principal at Northside Child Development Center, Principal at Southside School, and as the Assistant Director of Special Education and Social Emotional Learning. Prior to my current role, I spent two years as the Principal at Ballard Elementary. Before my time in Niles, I resided in Champaign, Illinois where I began teaching in 2010. I was a Special Education Teacher at Centennial High School for 4 years before becoming the Assistant Principal at Edison Middle School. I was Assistant Principal and then Associate Principal at Edison for almost 4 years before relocating to Michigan and joining the Niles schools team.

I currently reside in the Southwest Michigan area with my wife, Sarah, my daughter, Minnie, my son, Charlie, and goldendoodle, Popcorn.

Although I am an administrator and no longer have a classroom, I still have a strong passion for interacting daily with students and helping them grow. It is my goal to work with teachers, students, families, and the community to provide a safe, equitable, and rigorous learning environment in our schools.  I encourage parents to contact me with any celebrations, concerns, or questions. While I wear many hats, please do not hesitate to reach out to me-I want to help any way I can to create a successful school experience for all children. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and discussing how we might work together to meet the needs of students.
