Stewart Elementary Principal Jerome Klimisch

Meet your Stewart Elementary Principal! My name is Jerome Klimisch.  I have been privileged to work in the Yankton Public Schools for the past 30 years. This is my 16th year serving as principal of Stewart Elementary.  I have spent my entire life living in Yankton County.  My elementary school days were much different than the Stewart School experience as I attended a one room country school!  From there Irene High School, Mount Marty College and masters at USD.  I started my teaching career at Lincoln Elementary teaching 5th grade and have since been the assistant principal at Yankton Middle School, principal at Webster School before coming to Stewart.  I have enjoyed every school I have been at.    

I am married to my wife Nancy who teaches math at Yankton Middle School.  Together we have four grown children.  We are so happy we can live and work so close to our family.
