I would like to introduce myself. My name is Shawn Poyser, and I am honored and pleased to be your new Superintendent. I have been impressed by our community, school support, and so many friendly people! Please enjoy our website and continue the outstanding support of our schools. Feel free to stop by or contact me at your convenience with any questions or comments you may have.
I am originally from Northern Indiana / Western Ohio but have been in Missouri for over 3 decades with time spent in the southwest part of the state. In 1986 I graduated from Stockton and attended SMS (Missouri State) where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance. I returned to school and earned teacher certifications in business and social studies. In 2000 I graduated with a master’s degree from MSU in educational administration. Eight years later, I earned my specialist from Lindenwood and recently earned my doctorate in March 2016 from Lindenwood.
My wife, Laurie, and I have four children, Jessica, Erica, Curtis, and Shane, as well as one granddaughter, Winnie Marie. My children are grown, except for Shane, who is in fourth grade. Laurie joined North Elementary as a fourth grade teacher. I have worn a lot of hats including Business and Social Studies Teacher, FBLA, National Honor Society, and Yearbook Sponsor. Most people call me "Coach" since I have spent 18 years coaching basketball, 10 years coaching baseball, 3 years coaching football, and am now coaching with the Warsaw Parks and Recreation.
We are proud to join the community and make Warsaw our home.
