Early Learning Center
Dear Lakewood Creek Families,
My name is David Brusak and I would like to welcome you to Lakewood Creek School! I assumed the Principalship at Lakewood Creek during the 2008 school year. Prior to accepting the position, I served as the Principal of Goodwin Elementary school in West Aurora District 129 for a period of 8 years. Two years prior to my stay at Goodwin I served as a Dean at Washington Middle School in District 129 and taught at Lincoln Middle School for 9 years in North Berwyn, District 99. I have received my undergraduate degree in teaching from Northeastern Illinois University and an Educational Leadership graduate degree from Aurora University.
On a personal note, I have reside in Yorkville with my family – my wife Gina, my daughters Alyssa and Madison , my son Logan , and our German Shepard, Gunner. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends camping, snowboarding/skiing, traveling, wakeboarding, and attending my children’s’ sporting events – soccer, softball, baseball, cheerleading and track. I take pleasure in every aspect of music and am an avid runner who enjoys running races ranging from 5K’s to marathons.
Lakewood Creek will focus on the District and school’s mission, beliefs and objectives to guide our School Improvement Plan. Our focus will be to incorporate best practices in the classrooms and promote good character that will ultimately foster positive student achievement. Professional development revolving around best practices in reading, creating opportunities for staff to collaborate and discuss student achievement, interventions, data, etc., and furthering our efforts on creating an even stronger Character Counts program building wide are a few means that will lead us to our goals.
We look forward to working with our fabulous HSO and community to provide the students of Lakewood Creek with the best learning experience possible!
I am proud to be part of Lakewood Creek Elementary. As assistant principal, I look forward to working with such a dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.
