Mr. Steve Rembusch, Assistant Principal - Mr. Rembusch previously served as an Assistant Principal at Chatham Elementary School beginning in 2013. Prior to that, he was an elementary teacher for nine years. He began his career in Eagar, Arizona where he taught fifth grade. From there he came home to Chatham to teach fourth grade and coach varsity football. He has been employed by the District for 12 years, but has been a part of the district since he was in second grade.
Mr. Rembusch graduated from Glenwood High School in 1998, and says he is very excited to continue being a part of such a wonderful district. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education through Eastern Illinois University, and earned his Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership through The American College of Education.
His wife, Holly, is the Assistant Principal at Ball Elementary School. Together they have two daughters, Kaley and Kinsley. In his free time he enjoys fishing, hunting, camping, and spending time with his family. "I look forward to my new position as an Assistant Principal at Glenwood Middle School, and I am very excited for the upcoming school year," he says.
Ryan Green, Assistant Principal at Glenwood Middle School and Glenwood High School - On July 1, 2019 Mr. Ryan Green began serving as an Assistant Principal at both Glenwood Middle School and Glenwood High School.
