Mr. Joe Shimerdla


Hello! During my twenty years of educational experience, I have been a teacher and a coach at Omaha Central High School, Dean of Students at Blackburn, summer school principal at Accelere and a student support liaison at the district level.  My experiences in these different positions have helped me grow, learn to be the leader I am today, and continue to drive me to give all I can every day to every student and staff member.  My background in athletics has shown me the importance of goal setting, hard work, and dedication. These are traits that I bring to work with me every day and which I model and expect from students and staff.  As the current leader in the Omaha Public Schools, I put students, families, and staff first and do not make excuses for failure, but will continue to find ways for every student to succeed.
