Administrator leaves Northeast district

GOOSE LAKE— After eight years in the Northeast School District, Assistant Principal Phillip Borman, 31, will leave the district.

Phillip started at Northeast as an elementary teacher after completing his undergraduate education at Coe College in Cedar Rapids. He always had a passion for education.

After teaching for five years, he moved into the assistant principal position and received his masters degree from Drake University.

“I Initially got in it to make a difference in the lives of our youth,” Phillip said.

Phillip has enjoyed working with the “awesome” team of faculty and staff, as well as the students themselves.

“They’re the finest people you could ask to work with,” Phillip said. “They are committed to excellence and work continuously to improve.”

Now Phillip will move on to a new chapter of his life in Dubuque as the head principal of Mazzuchelli Middle School in the Holy Family Catholic School District. He is thrilled to have the opportunity to combine his passion for students and learning with his passion for Christ.

Currently living in Bellevue, Phillip is unsure if he will move his family closer to the district or not. He is considering making the move to Dubuque so his children can attend the Catholic school. He and his wife have three children (ages 7, 4 and 1), with one on the way.

The Northeast Board of Education officially approved Phillip’s resignation during a special meeting Tuesday. He will miss the district, even as he looks forward to his new position.

“I’m sad to leave, but excited for my future,” Phillip said.
