After earning a teaching certificate through Grand Valley State University’s Graduate Teacher Certification program, I began a career with West Ottawa Public Schools. I had the honor to teach English at the high school level for seven years. Following my time as a classroom teacher, I served as an Assistant Principal at West Ottawa High School for four years. I now have the privilege of serving as the Principal of Waukazoo Elementary. During all of my educational experiences, students have and will always continue to be my first priority. I love walking alongside them as they reach their goals, through fun and difficult times. Waukazoo is a special place with creative, student-first educators that truly value a balance between loving students and encouraging their academic achievement.

Waukazoo is such a great school! The staff is always helpful and friendly. The teachers strive to not only teach students but to make them the best versions of themselves that they can be! The community that they have created is truly a big family. I cannot imagine my student going anywhere else!Christina Marie Piotrowski, parent
Waukazoo provides an environment of possibilities for my kids. They know that they have no limits on what is achievable. I appreciate the way the teachers help my kids hold themselves accountable, while allowing them to make mistakes that push growth. It is a warm and welcoming place where my kids feel safe and are being prepared for the future. We are so happy to call Waukazoo our home.Kim Burmeister, parent
