Mark Kirst Profile

I feel so proud and excited to be the principal at Susie C. Altmayer.  I graduated from St. Norbert College in 1997 and spent the next 3 years playing minor league baseball for the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system before starting my teaching career in fourth grade.  I earned my masters degree from Lesley University and administrative license from Silver Lake College and have been a part of the Unified School District for 11 years as a fifth grade teacher, learning support teacher, and an assistant principal.  Teaching, coaching, and motivating kids to strive to do their best, grow as individuals, and develop positive relationships are my passions in life.  My role at Altmayer is to insure that all staff and students will grow in mind, body, and I can spirit and guide our students to "Blaze their own trails."
