Welcome from Principal Bliss

Welcome to the North Tama County Community School District’s Jr. High/High School! 

My name is Jeromiah Bliss, and as your new 7-12 Principal, I am excited to become a part of the Redhawk family. Before being selected for this position, I served various educational roles: Level III Behavior Disorder Teacher, 6th/7th/8th grade Reading and Language Arts teacher, Student Advocate, Middle School Activities Director, Middle School Strength and Conditioning Coordinator, as well as a baseball and wrestling coach.

I ascribe to the philosophy that “all children can succeed'' and am eager to work with staff to fulfill that belief. It is also my strong desire to develop positive working relationships with staff, students, parents, and community members because I am a firm believer that “people do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

Outside of school, I enjoy supporting my daughters’ (Sydnee and Olivia) involvement in travel sports (volleyball and softball) and piano/vocal lessons, playing in a cover band and riding my motorcycle with my wife Melissa.

I am excited and eager to serve this upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
