Meet Our Principal

Ellen Metz









When Ellen Metz was a junior at Mother McAuley High School on Chicago’s southwest side, she decided she wanted to teach history to students in Chicago one day. She earned a BA in History and Secondary Education from the University of Iowa and began her teaching career in 2001 at Farragut Career Academy in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood. After graduating her advisory at Farragut in 2005, Ms. Metz headed to Noble to teach. After teaching for two years at Noble, she moved into administration in 2007, first in the role as Dean of Students and then as the Assistant Principal for seven years.  Ms. Metz is a proud advisor to a group of young women who graduated from Noble in 2009 and a group of young men who graduated from Noble in 2013.  As a dedicated mother and wife, Ms. Metz understands that serving our students and their families is sacred work.  Every day she feels lucky to be able to live and work in the great City of Chicago, serving our Noble families.
