• 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!
