Ironwood's Administrative Team
Principal Russell Dunham
I am the Principal here at Ironwood High School. I was the Assistant Principal in charge of Academics here at Ironwood since 2011. I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I graduated from the University of Arizona (Bear Down) with a degree in Secondary Education/History. I always wanted to teach and coach. Before coming to Ironwood in 2011, I taught History, coached soccer, and was a Student Advisor at Centennial High School. I am very glad to be here at Ironwood and feel extremely fortunate to be working with our incredible students, parents, and staff. #IJBH
Academics - Reginna Lewis
I am the Assistant Principal in charge of Academics here at Ironwood High School. I am also the administrator for the Sophomore class. I was born and raised here in the valley for most of my life. I have had the pleasure of living in Italy and throughout the US while in the Air Force before retiring from the AF Reserves in 2014. I attended Arizona State University and received my Bachelor in Elementary Education and my Master of Education in Educational Leadership at Grand Canyon University. I have enjoyed the opportunity to work in the field of education for sixteen years. During my tenure as an educator, I have been committed to providing a quality education to students in addition to mentoring them through clubs and athletics. I was a district instructional coach at Peoria High School prior to joining the Eagle family. I look forward to serving this great community and am excited for this upcoming year. Go Eagles!
Activities - Susan Schmit
I am the Assistant Principal in charge of Activities here at Ironwood High School. I am also the administrator for the Freshman class. I knew at a very young age that I wanted to be a teacher. A native of Arizona, I grew up in the Glendale/Peoria area and graduated from Peoria High School. I received my Bachelors in Secondary Education/Social Studies from NAU and my Masters in Educational Leadership from ASU. I taught American Government and Student Government for 21 years right here at Ironwood High School. About 20 years into my teaching career, I decided that Administration would be a great direction for me. I was an Assistant Principal at Liberty High School for 6 years before returning to Ironwood in 2014. I absolutely love Ironwood! It is an amazing place to be because of our phenomenal students, our exceptional staff, and our supportive community. Ironwood is “home” to me.
Athletics - Kris Kemp
I am the Assistant Principal in charge of Athletics here at Ironwood High School. I oversee facilities, safety and am the administrator for the junior and senior classes. I was born and raised in the Chicago area where I was a collegiate athlete at Trinity International University. My family and I lived in Colorado before moving to Arizona. I have been a teacher and a varsity coach in Illinois, Colorado, and Arizona. I am excited to be a part of Ironwood as an administrator where I can support students, teachers and coaches.
