Who We Are
Welcome to Bay View
Dear Bay View Community,
I am very humbled and honored to introduce myself as the Principal of Bay View Middle School on an interim basis for the 2022-23 school year. I was raised in this community and was a member of the Bay Port High School Class of 1991. I returned home almost three years ago with my wife Kelly and our two sons Landon and Kellan. Landon will be an eighth grader here at Bay View and Kellan will be entering fifth grade at Lineville.
The 2022-23 school year will mark my 22nd year in education. I spent most of my career in Milwaukee Public Schools where I served as a high school mathematics teacher, mathematics coach, and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Coach. During my last two years in Milwaukee I was an administrator serving in the role of School Improvement Coordinator at South Division High School.
I firmly believe that every child can be successful and that the cooperation between home and school builds trust and provides additional clarity for students. In line with our district vision of working with families and community to ensure that our students have the knowledge and skills to succeed in a changing world, I am dedicated to continuous improvement efforts to meet the needs of all students and the adults who support them.
To our students, I am excited to see you all! I trust that by September you will be excited for this coming school year too. With construction well underway, it will be a unique and challenging year, a challenge that I know we will successfully tackle together.
I look forward to connecting with you and sincerely welcome your conversation and input during this year. Let us keep our students the primary focus of our work.
Heath Garland, M.Ed., Interim Principal
