Zack Kramer

Zachery Kraemer Principal

My name is Zack Kraemer and I have the pleasure and honor of being the principal at Lakeview Elementary School. This is my third year as an administrator at Lakeview and my third year in the district. Prior to coming to Zion, I was a music teacher for seven years at Gavin Central Elementary School in Ingleside, IL. I obtained my Bachelor’s in Music Education from Western Illinois University, a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with an English as a Second Language endorsement from Concordia University Chicago, and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Northern Illinois University. My wife and I live in McHenry with our two-year-old daughter and our dog. I look forward to working together to ensure that the students at Lakeview have a school year filled with quality instruction and great experiences.
