My name is Paul Besel. This is my 7th year as an administrator for Grand Meadow School. I spent my first six years as the PK-12 principal. As of July 1st, 2016, my role in the district changed. My role now is the Superintendent/PK-4 Principal.
My new role as a Superintendent and principal is to continue facilitating learning experiences for students and staff. It is also important to maintain fiscal responsibility when making decisions for curriculum development and have a solid staff development plan in place to keep our teachers and staff on the cutting edge of educational trends and practices.
My wife, Rhonda, is a Cosmetology instructor at Riverland Community College in Austin, MN. Rhonda and I have two children. Our son, Tucker, is a Physics and Chemistry teacher at Worthington High School in Worthington, MN. Our daughter, Mckenzie, is in her senior year at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, MN. She is pursuing a degree in secondary education focusing on Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, She is also a member of the Women’s Mustang Cross Country team. In addition to wanting to be a high school science teacher, she is looking forward to coaching Cross Country or Track, focusing on distance running.
