Dear Spooner Middle School Families and the Spooner Community,

I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve as the Spooner Middle School principal over the past two years.  It truly has been a pleasure getting to know the students and their families.  After evaluating the needs of my own family, I have made the difficult, yet exciting, decision to transition back to the classroom.  I am looking forward to serving the Spooner Area School District and bringing my passion for supporting the youth of Spooner to my new role as a 5th grade classroom teacher.

The search process for the next SMS Principal will begin immediately. The District anticipates that the new principal will be in place mid to late summer.
