Meet the Associate Principal - Jon Schubel
Hello! I am honored and privileged to join the Bobcat family as an Associate Principal for the 2021/2022 school year. Although this will be my first year in the MUSD district, it is my 10th year in education overall in the state of Arizona. Prior to joining the Bobcat team, I spent 4 years teaching science in the 9th grade, 2 years as a Dean of Students, and 3 years as an Assistant Principal.
I was born and raised in a small town outside of Buffalo, New York. After graduating from high school, I enlisted in the United States Air Force and served as an F-16 Crew Chief before being honorably discharged in 2006. It was my love of the southwest that landed me at the University of Arizona where I earned my degree in education and met my wife, Amanda, of 8 years. Over those 8 years I have been a resident of the Gladden Farms community, been blessed with two boys, and earned a graduate degree from NAU in school leadership.
I strongly believe in the partnership between families and the school which serves them. It is my commitment to ensure your child receives a positive learning experience that Gladden Farms Elementary is known for. I am passionate about working collaboratively, fostering relationships, and helping children shape their future.
