Hello Prairie Creek!
Hello Prairie Creek Intermediate parents, students, and staff! My name is John Netty and I am happy to introduce myself as your new principal.
I was born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa. I attended UNI where I earned a BA in English Secondary Education in 1990. I taught English and Reading for 16 years while coaching football, basketball, and baseball on both the high school and middle school levels. I was the head baseball coach at Waterloo East from 1998-2007.
While teaching and coaching at East High School I returned to UNI and earned my Master's in Educational Administration. I have been a middle school principal for the past eight years. Most recently I served as the head principal at Central Middle School in Waterloo.
I am married and have two daughters. My wife is Math instructor at Kirkwood Community College.
My hobbies include watching my two favorite teams, the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Chicago Cubs. I also love to fish and travel to northern Minnesota each summer for vacation.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to take on this new challenge. It was an honor to be chosen as principal of Prairie Creek Intermediate. I look forward to working with all of you.
