Mr. Tyson Strickler

Teacher leader grades 3-5

My name is Mr. Strickler and I am the Assistant Principal for grades 3-4-5. I have been at PCS since 2011. 

Over the past 7 years I have enjoyed teaching middle school Social Studies and coaching basketball/soccer at PCS. I graduated in 2014 from Mizzou with my Masters in Administration and have served as an Elementary School Assistant Principal for the past 3 years. Additionally I have a Masters in Teaching from National Louis University in Chicago and a Bachelors in Political Science from Indiana University. Prior to teaching, I was in banking as a branch manager for various banks in Indianapolis and Chicago most recently for JP Morgan Chase.

I am a husband and a father. I have 2 boys, Charlie who is in Kindergarten, and Sam who is 4 years old. Other than teaching, coaching, and learning my passions include all thing sports (especially the Indiana Hoosiers... yes if you call me a "Hoosier" I will say thank you)!  I am also a fan of all things Chicago - yes I'm a huge Cubs fan.  I also love dining, traveling, and always goofing around with my kids.
