My name is Bailey Rettmann, and I will have the privilege of serving as the new building Principal for West Elementary this coming school year. I am honored to get the opportunity to work with students in the Hutchinson school district, and am ready for the school year to get started.
I want to share a little about me to let all of you know who I am and where I am from. I have lived in Hutchinson for the past 13 years, and am married to my wife, Mandi. We have two boys who both attend Hutchinson Schools. My oldest son is Cam who will be going into 4th grade, and my youngest son is Joe who will be going into 2nd grade this year. We love living in the community and are involved in many activities. My wife is a nurse at the hospital here in town, and my boys are involved in wrestling, football, soccer, and baseball just to name a few things. We are always running around to their activities, and we enjoy every minute of it. If you see me at any events, please stop by and introduce yourself.
I have been in education for the past 13 years, and have had the opportunity to work with many different students and families. I started my career in Special Education and taught students in grades K-12 with multiple different disabilities. Six years ago, I was approached by my administrator and given the guidance to forward my career in administration. For the past six years, I have served as a Principal and Director of Special Education at SWWC Service Coop and Intermediate District 288. I am looking forward to continuing my career here in Hutchinson at West Elementary. It is a great district, and a great building to get to work in.
I am always open to talking with families and answering questions that you may have for me. Do not hesitate to reach out to me or to schedule a time to sit down and chat. I am here to work with families, and to provide the best education possible for each student that walks through the door each day. I am committed to providing an education that you and your child will be proud of.
