My name is Shawn Poyser, and I am honored and pleased to be your Superintendent. I have been impressed by our community, school support, and so many friendly people! Please enjoy our website and continue the outstanding support of our schools. Feel free to stop by or contact me at your convenience with any questions or comments you may have.
Originally from Northern Indiana / Western Ohio, I have called Missouri home for over 3 decades, with time spent in the southwest part of the state. In 1986 I graduated from Stockton and attended SMS (Missouri State) where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance. I returned to school and earned teacher certifications in business and social studies. In 2000 I graduated with a master’s degree from MSU in educational administration. Eight years later, I earned my specialist from Lindenwood and recently earned my doctorate in March 2016 from Lindenwood.
My wife, Laurie, and I have four children, Jessica, Erica, Curtis, and Shane, as well as one granddaughter, Winnie Marie. My children are grown, except for Shane, who is in fifth grade. Laurie joined North Elementary as a fourth grade teacher. I have worn many hats including Business and Social Studies teacher and FBLA, NHS, and Yearbook Sponsors. Most people call me "Coach" since I have spent 18 years coaching basketball, 10 years coaching baseball, 3 years coaching football, and am now coaching with the Warsaw Youth football and basketball leagues.
We are proud to be a part of this community and call Warsaw home.
