Princeton Primary School Names Shannon Bruskiewicz Principal

Princeton Public Schools is excited to welcome Shannon Bruskiewicz (Brus-key-witz) as the new Principal for the Primary School, filling an opening created when Ms. Marxhausen accepted the Middle School Principal position for next school year. 

“We are excited about the experience and expertise that Ms. Bruskiewicz will bring as our newest Princeton Tiger!” shared Superintendent Barton. “Shannon has served as an elementary assistant principal in St. Cloud the last three years. She started her career as an elementary classroom teacher and special education teacher, with a specialty in emotional and behavioral education. She values building relationships with families and supporting teachers in the important work they do.”

“I am really excited to meet all of the tiger cubs at Princeton Primary,”  said Ms. Bruskiewicz. “One of my favorite parts of working in an elementary school is to see the growth from year to year.  I felt very welcomed during the interview process and look forward to meeting staff, students, and families.”  

Ms. Bruskiewicz holds a Bachelor’s in Education and Psychology from Luther College (IA) and a Master's in Special Education from Bethel College. She completed her principal licensure through Hamline University. She has worked in the Robbinsdale and St. Cloud School Districts for more than twenty years and has extensive experience in Special Education, MTSS, English Language Arts, Responsive Classrooms, and Restorative Practices. Described as a calm and thoughtful leader, she was the overwhelming favorite of our interview teams. We are thrilled to welcome her as a Princeton Tiger.

In Princeton Public Schools, filling administrative positions follows an extensive process that involves many parents, teachers and leaders on interview teams. We extend our sincere appreciation to everyone who provided input and time to the interview process.
