Tim East, Principal
After graduating from Ball State University in 1986, I began my teaching career at Canyon Springs High School in Moreno Valley, California. While teaching and coaching at Canyon Springs, I earned a Masters degree in school administration from California State University. In 1990, my wife (Jenni) and I began our journey back to our Midwestern roots and moved to the Harlem Consolidated School District in north central Illinois. During my eight year tenure at Harlem, I served as a middle school teacher, high school assistant principal, and principal of the B. A. Hoffman magnet T.E.C.H. Academies High School. After the birth of our second child, we returned to our Indianapolis area roots, and I was named principal of Speedway Junior High School in 1998. Prior to accepting the opportunity to lead Zionsville Community High School, I served as principal of Eagle Elementary and Zionsville West Middle School. I am looking forward to the coming year and the opportunity to reconnect with former students and form new relationships with our students I have not yet had the opportunity to serve.
