During the school board meeting on Monday, July 31, the board approved the appointment of Kyle Resler as the next Buffalo High School (BHS) and Phoenix Learning Center (PLC) Assistant Principal. Resler will replace Kris Thompson who stepped into the dual BHS/PLC position last school year. Thompson will continue to serve as a BHS Assistant Principal.    

What made Resler stand out above the other applicants was his broad experience working with a variety of students. From his work as a day-treatment program teacher to a special education teacher to an AP Social Studies teacher to an AVID Coordinator, Resler's experience is far reaching. Throughout the interview process words that were used to describe Resler were: sincere, humble, hard-working, supportive to the whole community, committed to growth, and a motivator. He is highly focused on learning and continuous improvement for students and staff.

"I'm extremely excited to have Mr. Resler join our BHS team," states BHS Principal Mark Mischke. "He brings tremendous experiences from a variety of positions both in a traditional high school, and in alternative school settings over the last 15 years.  He is focused on serving students and staff in their pursuit of growth.  He brings outstanding coaching skills and an internal drive that will make our team better."

Resler is excited to be working in a district he has had his sights set on for some time. "I know people who work here in BHM Schools and this district has a great reputation," comments Resler. "I want to work with students who are in need of guidance and who have a community around them for support. I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as the next BHS Assistant Principal and am excited to get started."

Resler comes to BHS from Thomas Edison High School in Minneapolis where for the last nine years he was a 9th grade administration program coordinator and building coach. He provided support to 9th grade teachers who worked to accommodate the transition and growth needs of 9th grade students. Prior to that he was a special education teacher in the Minneapolis School District and a social studies teacher for court-ordered teens at Keystone Community Services (day-treatment center). He graduated from St. Cloud State University in 2003 with a B.S. in social studies. He continued his education at the University of St. Thomas where in 2011 he earned a masters in special education, and in 2014 he earned his K-12 principal licensure from the University of St. Thomas.

Resler will begin at BHS on August 14, 2017.
