Matt Zavada will transition into the role over the next month in preparation for the start of the 2022-23 school year.
On July 13, the Mequon-Thiensville School District Board of Education approved the hiring of Mr. Matt Zavada as the newest assistant principal at Homestead High School. Zavada takes on the role previously held by Mr. Christopher Weiss, who transitioned away from MTSD this summer to take a principal position at John Long Middle School in the Grafton School District.
Mr. Zavada previously served in the Kohler School District, where he has held the roles of Athletic & Activities Director and Director of Community Service since 2019 and also taught physical education in Kohler since 2003.
“Throughout the interview process, Matt’s dedication to students and passion for paving the way for their success really shone through,” said Eric Ebert, principal of Homestead High School. “Notably, I appreciated the examples he gave of the ways he has worked hard to support students’ academic and social-emotional growth.”
Zavada holds a bachelor’s degree in physical education and adaptive PE and coaching from Concordia University Wisconsin as well as a master’s of education in interdisciplinary studies curriculum and instruction from National Louis University and a master’s of science in educational leadership and policy from UW-Oshkosh.
“Having the opportunity to work in a small district like Kohler has allowed me to develop strong skills that have prepared me to become a successful leader as a principal, often allowing me to wear many different hats, which suits my servant-leadership style very well,” said Zavada. “I look forward to an opportunity to use my skills and experience to positively impact the Homestead High School community.”
