Nathan Anderson started as the new assistant principal at Lowell Elementary Oct. 24.

"Lowell is an incredible and unique school because of its diversity of students, families, staff, and programming options, and Lowell has a tradition of educational excellence that is student-centered, Anderson said. "All of this made Lowell an appealing school for me to begin my principal journey. 22+ years in education have prepared me for this role."

Anderson received a Master's in special education and teaching licensure in emotional behavioral disorders and learning disabled from Bemidji State University. He also received a Master's of Science in education administration from the University of Wisconsin. Anderson comes to Duluth Public Schools from Cloquet.

"Most of my career has been in Cloquet as a special education teacher, but in the last few years I've held leadership roles as an instructional coach and as a restorative practice & equity coordinator," Anderson said. "I am very fortunate to begin my role as assistant principal under the mentorship of Principal Hessler, who is a very respected leader. I look forward to supporting the efforts that continue to make Lowell a caring school that provides the best learning opportunities for all of our students."

"Duluth is very fortunate to have Nathan join our team. He has a wealth of knowledge and great experience that will really benefit the Lowell community," said Brenda Spartz, director of elementary education.

Please welcome Mr. Anderson to the district!
