Welcome to Stewartville High School!
Hello everyone! My name is Patrick Breen and I am the new principal at Stewartville High School. This is my first administrative role, having been a high school science teacher in several districts prior to this school year. This school year will be my 20th in secondary education.
I am a proud graduate of Willmar High School and St. John's University in Collegeville, MN. I earned my Masters in Education degree in Science Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and my K-12 Administrative license from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
I have been married to my wife Kay for 12 years, and we are fortunate to be chasing around our two active boys, Tommy and Joey, and our pooch Lucky.
In my spare time, I love to play golf and racquetball, read, and listen to podcasts. I am also an avid Twins, Wild, and Packers fan.
I am fortunate to have the privilege to serve as the SHS principal and look forward to the opportunity. Among the responsibilities this position brings, I view ensuring school safety, student and staff mental health, quality teaching, a challenging curriculum, and meaningful connections between staff and students as paramount.
Let's make it a great year!
