Our Principal & Grade 5/6/7 Teacher:  John Haeussler

Mr. Haeussler has been our principal for the past seven years.  His career began in Kitchener, Ontario where he taught grade 6 at Christ Lutheran School.  From there he moved on to Plattsville Christian School in Plattsville, Ontario where he taught grades 3 & 4, 7 & 8, and eventually served as their principal for three years.  He is excited to be entering his 21st year in the teaching profession.  Throughout his career, John has become a passionate advocate for Christian education.  He is thoroughly enjoying living in Prince George where he can take advantage of all the outdoor activities available to him.  You can contact Mr. Haeussler at principal@zlcs.com.  He loves showing people around Zion and talking about all of things God is doing there!
