Get to know Principal John Leininger

Welcome to the Matoska International website! I hope you will find the site a helpful tool in helping support your child in all ways.


Matoska International was authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School in December 2010. We have a rich tradition of providing a quality education for all children in a setting that provides a local curriculum with a world view.


My journey to this position includes many stops along the way. Having taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade in various capacities and combinations lends to a great perspective on a day to day basis. I have degrees from the University of Minnesota, University of St. Thomas and Hamline University. Outside of school, my wife Jennifer and sons Alex and Tyler enjoy traveling to new places and exploring different corners of the world. We are active in the YMCA and also enjoy coaching youth Lacrosse.



It is a privilege to be principal here at Matoska. I look forward to working together with you  in making this an outstanding learning and growing experience for the children at Matoska.




Sincerely,
John Leininger
Principal
