Principal - Spirit Lake Elementary in Spirit Lake, Iowa
Greetings, my name is Kasey Huebner, and I am starting my first 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 two years old this summer. He definitely keeps us on our toes!
This will be my sixth year teaching at Spirit Lake, and my seventh 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. This will be my first year leading a great group of educators within the Spirit Lake Elementary building.
I will strive to make each and every child's educational experience positive. I am very passionate in 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. Students come to school each day eager to learn, which develops into a wonderful environment to foster learning.
Technology is an integral part of our school district. While using technology, I've seen how it has positively impacted the engagement of the students. We now have information available at our fingertips with all the different devices we carry around everyday. I want the students to be able to utilize these devices efficiently to enhance the learning in the classroom. 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 in our students. 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,
