Butterfield-Odin Principal

Greg Ewing

Hello, my name is Greg Ewing and I would like to share with you a little information about who I am and where I come from. I graduated from St. Anthony Village High School in NE Minneapolis and went on to attend college at Hamline University in St. Paul, MN. I graduated from Hamline with a degree in Secondary Social Studies Education and went out into the workforce. During the next few years I worked at a variety of jobs at 2 important Minnesota companies, 3M and Target. I then accepted a position as the Youth and Family Ministries Director for large congregation in Hutchinson, MN. It was during the time shortly after college that I was married and while working for the church my family began to grow. My wife is Brenda and my two sons are Peter and Jackson. While working at the church the opportunity presented itself for me to transition back to education.

During my time as a teacher, I taught Psychology, American History and World History at Hutchinson High School. I also coached both football and baseball from the Jr. High level through Varsity teams. During those years I also continued my education by adding a Master in Education from St. Mary’s University in Winona and obtaining my K – 12 Principal Licensure from Hamline University. Upon obtaining my administrative license I accepted the position of Dean of Students at Kennedy Elementary School in Willmar, MN, where I have been working until accepting the Principal position for the Butterfield – Odin school.

Some of the things that I enjoy doing when not at school are spending time watching local sports teams, reading, walking my dog and spending time with my family at the lake. One other passion I have is for high school wrestling. I have been a high school wrestling official for 25 years and have been selected to officiate at the state wrestling tournament 10 times. I am very excited to begin this new challenge as the Principal for the Butterfield – Odin school.
