Mr. Hoekstra began his role as Superintendent on July 1, 2018 following the retirement of long time WPS Superintendent, Dr. Thomas Reeder.  Mr. Hoekstra has spent 27 years in Wyoming Public Schools, first as a student, then a custodian, teacher, principal, and most recently, has served as the WPS Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services (2015-2018).  He also spent three years at Hamilton Community Schools as Principal and Director of Instruction before returning to Wyoming Public Schools in 2012.

 

Mr. Hoekstra obtained his Master of the Arts degree in Educational Leadership and his Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University.  He also holds a Michigan School Administrator Certificate in Elementary & Secondary Admin K-12 as well as a Professional Education Certificate.

“I am very excited to lead this great school district. A district that I hold dearly as a proud graduate,” noted Hoekstra.  “I am looking forward to working with staff, administrators and members of the community to build on what we have established in Wyoming as we continue to provide meaningful and memorable experiences for everyone in the organization. I appreciate the Board of Education’s confidence in me and for Dr. Reeder’s strong leadership which has resulted in many accomplishments and a solid foundation to position the district for future success,” Hoekstra said.

 

Mr. Hoekstra, a lifelong west Michigan resident, and his wife, Johanna, have three (3) children.

Wyoming Public Schools

So much fun with Parkview Team 21! The students planted their school garden with their friends this week. Kids’ Food Basket joined us in planting the garden. The kids helped plant corn for a three sisters garden, several bean varieties, sunflowers, cucumber, greens and marigolds. They also found some of their worm buddies. The students also received seeds that were harvested and shared by Grandville South Elementary.
This week we finish planting and hope to get the fruit trees in.

Thank you Wyoming Public Schools for the opportunities to teach your kids how to grow food from seed to plate.
