Principal - Spirit Lake Elementary in Spirit Lake, Iowa
Greetings, my name is Kasey Huebner, and I am starting my third year as the elementary principal in the Spirit Lake school district. My family consists of my wife, Terri, who works at Central Bank in the mortgage department, and my son, Kedrick, who just turned four years old this summer and we are also expecting our second child in September! Kedrick is sure excited to be a big brother!
This will be my eighth year teaching at Spirit Lake, and my ninth year in education. My previous teaching experiences include teaching special education in the Sioux Central school district, fourth grade in Spirit Lake, and fifth-grade science in Spirit Lake.
I will strive to make each and every child's educational experience positive. I am very passionate about finding new ways to engage students, and I strive to challenge the students to invent their own way of thinking about how the world works. Spirit Lake Elementary has great teachers to challenge our students in an authentic way that encourages every child to be creative in their own unique way. Students come to school each day eager to learn, which develops into a wonderful environment to foster learning.
Spirit Lake Elementary will continue a movement to a more personalized learning environment that is pro-student choice. We will explore different avenues on how to maintain high expectations while building a strong foundation of skills that students can apply in and outside of the classroom. Students should understand that this personalized learning model is paramount to instilling 21st century skills that our students need to be successful within our community and world.
Lastly, I am joining a team that has very high, attainable expectations. I am so excited to serve and support our students, teachers and parents to ensure that we maintain a high level of education that our community deserves.

Yours in Education,
