Welcome Back Letters
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
My name is Bryce Solberg and I am excited to be the principal for the upcoming school year. Previously, I taught special education for eight years, an assistant principal for three years, and a principal for one year. I received my Bachelor degree in elementary education from Northern Arizona University. Additionally, I received a Master of Education in Special Education from Grand Canyon University and a Master of Education from Northern Arizona University in Educational Leadership with a Principal emphasis.
As for my home life, I have been married for 7 years. My wife taught first grade for seven years, but now is a stay-at-home mom. We have a 7 year old son, Caden, and four year old twin daughters, Kaylee and Addison.
We enjoy riding quads, playing sports, and visiting Flagstaff as much as possible to escape the heat.
I am looking forward to an amazing year.
My name is Brett Nauta and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the EDUPRIZE community for a second year. I am originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan and graduated from Grand Valley State University. Five years ago, I decided to move to Arizona to continue my teaching career and also earned my Masters in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I firmly believe that our school is so successful due to our amazing staff as well as our incredible families that make up our EDUPRIZE community. I also understand the impact a quality educational experience can have on our children and am committed to being a part of excellence here.. Every student should feel valued and be in a position to achieve their own personal level of success on a daily basis. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my wife and daughter, playing a variety of sports, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers!
