• Mr. Huber  

    From the Principal



    My name is Zach Huber and I am extremely excited to be starting my third year as principal at Pine.  This year we welcome eight new classroom teachers and several support staff. I have no doubt that this year we will continue our rise to the top.  

    I have been married for 14 years and have three amazing daughters.  I was born and raised in LaPorte, graduated from Bethel College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and most recently earned my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Indiana University Northwest. This is my 8th year with the district. Previously I taught at Joy Elementary and served as the Instructional Coach at both Niemann and Marsh.  Prior to my time in Michigan City I spent nine years teaching in the Gary Community School Corporation. I have had the privilege and joy of teaching grades two through six.

    I remain passionate about the educational process and reaching all young people.  As an educational leader, I believe my ultimate goal is to improve instruction in order to increase student learning. With the amazing staff and strong parent and community partnerships, I believe that Pine School will continue to excel, motivating and empowering students to become successful in learning and in life.
