Superintendent, Woodland Park Academy
Woodland Park Academy, a K-8 charter school in Grand Blanc, serves students from the immediate surrounding area, Flint and greater Genesee County. Growing up, he was a frequent flyer in the Principal's office, and struggled in the classroom. But thanks to a special educator who showed him compassion and understanding, Jeremy realized his path to help redefine school for students like him. Beginning as a teacher and eventual Dean of Students at Holly Academy, he built his educational philosophy around forging relationships that last, investing in kids' hearts to ultimately impact their minds. Having led Woodland since 2012, Jeremy has built a team of dedicated and passionate educators, who deliver on amazing results for kids and families - and who have committed to constant improvement by implementing Professional Learning Communities, where they coach one another on supporting the evolving needs of students.
