Jeremy Eltz currently serves as the Director of Rural Education at the Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning on the campus of the University of Indianapolis. He is the facilitator for Indiana’s recently formed Collaborative for Rural Education.
Jeremy began his career as a research scientist but working on mice wasn’t what it was cut out to be. So he decided to work on kids by becoming a teacher. Jeremy taught middle school science in Pike Township, Indianapolis before joining the Indiana Department of Education in 2012. During his time at the IDOE, Jeremy created the state’s first STEM plan, the STEM school certification, adopted new science standards, and added computer science standards for grades K-8. In 2016, Jeremy received his PhD in educational leadership and holds a school superintendents license.
Jeremy currently resides in Carmel, Indiana with his wife Missy and two daughters, Macy and Mallory.
