Give a big #VanguardPride welcome to our new MS/HS Assistant Principal and Athletics and Activities Director, Kindra Zuberbuehler! Kindra is a resident of the village of Mazomanie and is incredibly excited to join our Wisconsin Heights MS/HS family. She grew up in Mukwonago, WI. She attended college at UW-LaCrosse and majored in ACS Chemistry and Chemistry Education. The summer after college included college graduation, finishing student teaching, getting married to her husband, Matt, and then packing their possessions into a U-Haul trailer and moving to Durham, North Carolina. There they adopted two fluffy cats, Jasmine & Rajah. 🐈 Kindra, Matt, and their two furry felines spent three wonderful years in North Carolina. However, Wisconsin is home, so in 2016 they made the journey back for good. She joined the staff at Sauk Prairie High School teaching chemistry and coaching varsity softball. Five years ago, they bought their home in Mazomanie and adopted two puppies🐕- Daisy & Bandit (yes, they still have the cats). During that time, she earned her masters in Educational Leadership along with her Principal license and Director of Instruction license. This past March, they welcomed their first baby, Zoya, into the world and are absolutely smitten with her. Outside of school she enjoys camping & hiking, being on the water, slowpitch softball, crafting, and spending time with her daughter & husband. Kindra started on July 25th. Stop by and introduce yourself!
