    It is with great pleasure that I can introduce myself as the high school principal for Northland Community Schools. It is truly an honor to become a part of the NCS family and community. I can tell that this is a unique and special place that I am incredibly excited to be a part of.

    I come to you with 22 years of experience as an educator. However, I come from a family of educators, so I have been around this profession all of my life. I spent 20 years teaching Industrial Technology education classes at the middle and high school levels. Schools that I taught at are Hutchinson High School, Deer River High School and I actually started my teaching career here at Northland Community Schools.  I have spent the last 2 years as a principal at a local school in northern Minnesota.

    I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when the school and the families work together for the best interests of our children. With that in mind, I will be calling on all of our faculty, staff, and parents to work as a team so we can best serve our children.

    I am truly honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to immersing myself completely in our school and in our community. I believe my main responsibility is to put our teachers in the best possible position to succeed, as they will in turn put our children in the best possible position to succeed. I look forward to meeting all of you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.

    Yours in education,

    Mark Motherway
