Welcome to Tecumseh North Learning Center! My name is Josh McDowell and I am the principal of North. I am so excited to start my first year at Tecumseh Public Schools! I have been an elementary principal for the past eight years, and before that I taught 1st and 2nd grades for five years. I have vast experience in teaching learners how to read and coaching facilitators in strategies to help learners achieve their optimal potential. Being an early elementary principal has always been a dream of mine and I look forward to helping our young learners build a solid foundation for the remaining years of their education.

North Early Learning Center educates Young 5s through first grade learners. Our focus is on educating the whole child, which includes not only the academic but also the social, emotional, and physical development of every learner. Our goal is to support and develop our learners' natural curiosity through a customized learning approach enriched with play, cooperation, imagination, and inquiry. We are proud to be Uncompromisingly Learner Centered!

Again, I am very excited to begin my journey with all of you and believe that the parent/school relationship is crucial to enhance the education of all learners. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns. I look forward to meeting all of you and to a great year!
