Mrs. Andrea Zimmerman Named Principal of NDA

Andrea (Zobler) Zimmerman ‘96, current Dean of Academics, will rise to the position of Principal of Notre Dame Academy on July 1. Mrs. Zimmerman has been a teacher for 18 years and has been leading academics at NDA since 2013. A lifelong Toledo resident, she holds a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Lourdes University and a Bachelors in Education from The University of Toledo. With her teaching experience and 7 years as Dean of Academics, Zimmerman is exceptionally qualified to ensure Notre Dame Academy continues to be the area’s premier academic choice for girls.
As a 1996 alumna of Notre Dame Academy, she knows firsthand the “plaid sisterhood” felt by anyone who has attended Notre Dame Academy. Additionally, she personally understands what it is like to be an NDA parent, because her daughter currently attends NDA. With this rich background, Mrs. Zimmerman will bring a personal understanding of the dreams and needs of students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumnae of NDA.
“I think continuity and stability is particularly important this year,” said Zimmerman. “Notre Dame Academy and Catholic Education are in my blood so I’m excited to continue fulfilling NDA’s mission in a new role.”
Mrs. Zimmerman feels it is important to act as a faith and work-life balance role model for NDA students. She and her husband Michael are parents of four children. She has served on the Advisory Council for All Saints Catholic School. She also serves as a catechist at All Saints. The Zimmermans have been members of All Saints Catholic Church since 2007.
