Mosser is currently an assistant principal at Lake Middle School. He will be replacing Connha Classon who will serve as the new principal at Valley Crossing Elementary School. Mosser will begin his new role on August 12, and will go before the board for approval at the August 15 School Board Meeting.

Mosser has served as the assistant principal at Lake Middle School since 2015 where he worked closely with staff, students and families to ensure the success of each student. Before joining District 833, Mosser served as a science teacher and later instructional coach at Minnetonka Public Schools from 2000-2015. He began his career in education as a science teacher at Coppell Public Schools in Coppell, Texas in 1997.

During his time at Lake Middle School, Mosser has gone above and beyond his role to serve on the district strategic planning team. In this work, he helped district leaders find ways to meet one of the district’s strategic objectives of engaging, motivating and empowering each student through personal instruction, creating shared ownership of learning. In addition, Mosser has been a part of the system leaders group as it addresses plans to improve the climate and culture for students and staff.

“Tony has been actively engaged in district initiatives and brings a depth of knowledge around high-quality instruction,” said Julie Nielsen, Assistant Superintendent. “We are excited that Tony will be continuing to do this work in his new role as Principal of Woodbury Elementary School.”

“I’m honored and excited to join Woodbury Elementary School’s learning community. I’m looking forward to collaborating with our students, families, community members, and staff to provide a quality learning environment, and to ignite a passion for lifelong learning in all of our stakeholders,” said Mosser. “I would like to express my gratitude toward Lake Middle School’s students, families, and staff for opening up their community and allowing me to learn and grow with them. Lake will always have a special place in my heart.”

Mosser earned his K-12 Education Administration Licensure from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota in 2015. He earned his Masters in Science Education from Bemidji State University in 2011 and his Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Bemidji State University in 1996.
