Maywood Public Schools Principal
My name is Lucas McCain. My family and I live in Maywood. Olivia and I welcomed Parker Jill into the world on April 11, 2015. It is fun watching her grow and learn. We added Brooks to our family on May 5, 2017. He is a healthy, growing boy.
Family is a big part of our life. We spend our free time with them. My parents are Scott and Shari McCain, who live in Fremont, Nebraska. My older sister, Lindsey, and her husband, Mike, live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Olivia's parents live in Moorefield, Nebraska. Her brother, Austin, lives there as well. Her sister, Candace, lives in Bridgeport, Nebraska.
In December of 2011, I graduated with my bachelor's degree in K-12 Special Education with an endorsement in coaching. In the fall of 2012, I taught ninth through twelfth grade special education at Arlington High School. In my third year at Arlington I taught fifth through eighth grade special education. In the fall of 2015, I moved to Logan View Elementary School to teach with my wife who was the fourth grade teacher. I taught fourth through sixth grade special education at Logan View Elementary School.
In May of 2018, I graduated from Doane University with a degree in Educational Leadership. I have learned that you have to know your own morals and values in order to lead others. Leaders need to build relationships with everyone involved in order to build success. Those relationships allow the leader to identify others' strengths and work more efficiently toward a common goal.
My family and I are looking forward to becoming a part of the Maywood Public Schools community.
