Hello Copperwood Community,
My name is John Wallander, and I am excited to be serving Copperwood as the assistant principal. Getting to know the students and helping them become successful, well-rounded citizens is my goal. To achieve this goal, I feel it is of utmost importance to work together with students, staff, and parents.
I have been in the district since 1999. I taught multiple grade levels and have been an assistant principal since 2016. All 3 of my children attended Peoria schools from Kindergarten all the way through Ironwood High School, and my wife, Amy, is a teacher at Cotton Boll Elementary in Peoria as well.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with your children this year!
