Mrs. Ish Lantz

Welcome to Dean Road Elementary!

Hello all, I have been a school nurse for 8 years for all ages from college to elementary.  I am just starting out here at Dean Road and come all the way from Northern Indiana!  I am here to advocate for your students so please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

My first degree is actually in biology from IU, Go Hoosiers!  Then I went to Bethel College and received my nursing degree, Go Pilots!  Since I also work for the University of Notre Dame, I am HUGE Irish fan as you will see when entering my office.

I live in Auburn with my husband, a biomedical engineer, and my two goldendoodles, Lily and Finn.  We are excited to be in the south and not have -40 degree temperatures and lake effect snow.  We love the outdoors and thankfully our son moved to Colorado so we can visit him.  We also love live sports and look forward to going to local events but our hearts will always be with the Colts, Sox, Blackhawks, and Bulls.




If your child will require medication during the 2021-2022 School year, you must contact our school nurse, Nurse Ish. A completed Medication Parent/Prescriber Authorization form must be submitted when the medication is delivered to the school nurse. Students are prohibited from delivering medications to school.
