Andrew Gilbert
Assistant Principal
Welcome  to our East community!  We are excited for the upcoming year and can’t wait to feel the energy of having middle school students back in school.  I have been the Assistant Principal at East for the past five school years.  I started my educational career as a social studies teacher at East, although when I started it was the only middle school in the district.. After 10 years of teaching, I earned my administrative degree and transitioned to an Administrative Dean position at Pioneer Ridge Freshman Center followed by Chaska High School. During this time, I also had the opportunity to spend two years teaching overseas at a middle school in South Korea.  During those experiences, I learned that my place is at the middle level, so I was thrilled to return to CMS East as the AP. I look forward to partnering with you and working with others to create a positive learning environment for all students.

First as an Instructional Coach for two years and now serving as Administrative Dean for the past six years. I am passionate about helping guide middle school students and families through these challenging, amazing years with us at East.
