Mr. Dustin Neyer, Academic Dean
“Hello! My name is Dustin Neyer, and I’m thrilled to be joining the Corpus Christi family as the Academic Dean. Originally from Mt. Pleasant, I grew up on a dairy farm and attended Sacred Heart Academy from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Social Studies from Alma College, and I recently completed my Master’s in Educational Leadership from Western Governors University.
Over the past five years, I have taught 3rd/4th grade as well as 6th-8th grade in multi-grade classrooms, implementing project-based learning to engage students in meaningful ways. Supporting students from diverse backgrounds and fostering a growth mindset are at the core of my educational philosophy. Outside of the classroom, I have a passion for athletics! I played college football while I was at Alma and have also been coaching middle school basketball for the past five years. One of my most memorable memories from high school was being #1 on Sportscenter Top Ten Plays for a buzzer beater shot I made in a basketball game.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, attending concerts and sporting events, lending a hand on my dad’s dairy farm, and cherishing the role of being the “cool” uncle to my 2-year-old niece, Harper. Building positive relationships with students, parents, staff, and the community is what I value most in education. I’m excited to now have the opportunity to integrate my faith into this new role and connect with the Corpus Christi family. I look forward to continuing my educational journey in Holland and getting to know the Corpus Christi community better!”
