Meet The Principal

Principal Mr. Dwight Quinn

Greetings Parents and Families of GREAAT:

dQuinnMy name is Dwight Quinn Jr. and it is with great pride and privilege that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed elementary principal. My path to this appointment started in Muskegon, MI where I was born and raised. As a child, I was active in sports and more sports! Upon completion of my high school diploma, I moved to Kalamazoo, MI to attended Western Michigan University (WMU) on an academic scholarship. While at WMU, I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in elementary education as well as a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. My time at WMU afforded me multiple experiences and a variety of exceptional opportunities.

Some of these experiences and opportunities include a successful teaching tenure with Kalamazoo Public Schools and more recently administrator experience with Belding Area Schools. I’ve served varying populations of students with unique needs and challenges. However, my passion is for working with diverse student populations and leading passionate educators to meet the needs of all learners.

Recently, I married a kindergarten classmate of mine and became the stepfather of two beautiful and intelligent young girls. Our family is excited to become part of the GREAAT family and community! We anticipate an excellent school year and are looking forward to building strong relationships and partnering with each of you!

In partnership,

Mr. Quinn
