The following is from Joplin Schools' website from earlier in the month.
Joplin Schools is pleased to announce Mr. Nathan Stewart as the new assistant principal for Cecil Floyd Elementary.
Stewart grew up in Lamar, Missouri, and has been an educator for the last nine years. His career began in the North Kansas City School District, where he taught second and third grade before moving back to the Joplin area to be closer to family. He most recently comes to us as a fifth grade teacher from the Carl Junction School District. Throughout his career, Stewart has been able to quickly build and foster strong relationships with staff, students, and parents. He not only values the importance of relationships but also fosters the significance of meeting needs of diverse learners. Stewart and his family are proud to be part of the Joplin community and look forward to continuing the great work at Cecil Floyd.
“Mr. Stewart is a wonderful addition to the Cecil Floyd family. His commitment to relationships and student growth are a perfect fit for Joplin Schools,” said Chris Bozarth, Cecil Floyd principal.
Stewart earned his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri. In 2014, he completed his master’s degree in administration at the University of Central Missouri.
