Mr. Paul Croghan
Mr. Gerry Miller
6-12 Principal


Welcome to Nodaway Valley! I joined the Nodaway Valley Community School District in 2019. Previously, I was the shared superintendent for East Mills and Essex.

As an educator, I am committed to excellence. I am willing to do whatever is necessary to ensure success for all NV students and will work hard to improve processes and to collaborate with community members, administrators, staff and students.

I joined the Nodaway Valley School District in 2020. I was formerly a high school associate principal and coach.


My duties will include serving as the principal of the middle school and high school as well as the 7-12 activities director. I believe participation in extracurricular activities is directly related to academic success.

Mr. James Larson
PK-5 Principal

Prior to becoming the Elementary Principal at Nodaway Valley in 2021, I was a sixth grade ELA instructor and mentor teacher at Nodaway Valley Middle School.

We work hard at Nodaway Valley Elementary to do what is best for our students.  We continue to focus on reading strategies to help all students become skillful, proficient and motivated readers.
