Brian SchoenHi Everyone,

It is truly my honor to serve the Southland School District as your Middle School, Elementary and Early Childhood Principal.  I am very fortunate to work with dedicated and creative facility who work tirelessly for what is best for students.  I am also impressed with the level of parent, community and business support that exists to enhance the learning process.  Thank you for allowing me to work with your children each day. 

A little bit about myself so you can know who is working in your schools.  I have taught for over 20 years in general education and specialized programs. Most recently, I have been an educational leader for 9 years, 7 of which have been at Southland.  I received my teaching certifications from Minnesota State University, Mankato and my Educational Leadership from the University of Minnesota.  In working on an Indian Reservation, Special Education, ALC Programming and General Education at multiple educational levels, I believe I have a diverse background to lead and work with students at all levels.   My educational background is nothing compared to what I learn each and everyday in working with your children and the committed staff of Independent School District 500.  Go Rebels!

As for my personal life, I have a wife of 25 years, named Erin who teaches in the Austin School District.  I have two daughters who are also teachers.  Traveling is my passion as there is so much to see and do, both near and far.  Meeting new people and experiencing others customs and rituals are incredibility inspiring and helps me to grow not only as an educator, but personally as well.                  

 Thank you for allowing me to serve you and your children.  If you need anything don't hesitate to contact me.
