Mr. Issac Bjerk

Hello, Conway and Spoede Elementary families! I am incredibly excited to meet and work with you this upcoming year! My goal is to make this school year one of discovery, growth, and joy as we learn and work together.

This year will be my very first as assistant principal. I spent the previous three years working as a District Facilitator in the Kirkwood School District. Before my experience in Kirkwood, I taught right here, in Ladue School District, working at Spoede Elementary and the Fifth Grade Center for the first ten years of my educational career. I’m thrilled to be back in Ladue, working with the students, teachers, and families that together make this a great place to work and learn!

As we move into and through this school year, please don’t hesitate to reach out and connect if there’s anything I can do for you and your family. Real, positive relationships are the essence of what I do and why I do it, and I can’t wait to meet and form those relationships with each of you.
