Verboomen opening doors on Washington Island

Washington Island School Principal Tim Verboomen hopes to see you soon on campus. Verboomen took over the principal, curriculum director, and athletic director roles after spending his first year as a chemistry teacher. Filling multiple positions at once is nothing new for Verboomen, who has held several different roles at the elementary, middle, and high school levels as he moved across the country with his wife during her career as an Army nurse. When they finally had a chance to settle down, and after many of their kids graduated from high school in the Neenah area, the Verboomen family headed to Washington Island. With the initial worries about the pandemic behind them, Verboomen says he is looking forward to more opportunities to welcome parents back to the building and connect students with business leaders and community members.

Verboomen is excited to see some of the other opportunities that come their way. For example, science students at the school recently worked with the University of Georgia on their monarch tagging project at Plum Island.
