Dear Students and Parent/Guardians,

My name is Mr. Troy Kuhn and I am your Clintonville Middle School Principal. As principal at CMS, I will work with faculty, parents, and students in helping students learn and achieve their dreams. Student focus will be placed on the whole person, academic, emotional, mental, etc. CMS will help guide students in “finding themselves” and help guide and support them so they can be lifelong learners and contributing citizens.

Personally, I am a 1999 graduate of Plymouth High School and a four Sport varsity letter recipient (Football, Basketball, Track, Baseball). I attended my undergraduate at St. Norbert College majoring in Biology/Broadfield Science and 6-12 education. I received my Masters of Arts in Education from Marian University and am currently enrolled in their Doctorate of Education Studies. I am very experienced in technology (former technology director), anti-bullying, building caring communities, restorative practices, trauma informed care, and understanding the diversity of student demographics/cultures.

I am a proud father of two children. My wife Danielle is an accountant at Kerber Rose and Associates. We enjoy being outdoors, especially deer and bear hunting. Other activities that we participate in are: four-wheeling, snowmobiling, family board game nights, or working at the farm (food plots, checking deer cameras, pumpkin patch). We love to learn about the world, therefore, the History and Discovery Channels are regularly watched.

My stress relieving down time is spent in the outdoors, sitting in a hunting stand with my family, or watching the fish and corals in my saltwater fish tank.

I hope that by working together we can improve each other, and most importantly improve our students, academically, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Let us together focus on student growth and success and to allow them to achieve their dreams!
