ROSEMOUNT, Minn. – District 196 Superintendent Jane K. Berenz announced the hiring of Peter Roback as the next principal of Rosemount High School.
Roback replaces John Wollersheim, who is retiring after a 33-year career in District 196, including the last 10 years as principal of Rosemount High.
For the past three years, Roback has been the assistant principal at Falcon Ridge Middle School in Apple Valley. His career in District 196 started at Rosemount High in 2000, as a special education teacher. From 2003 to 2008, he served as ninth-grade coordinator, and in 2008 was promoted to assistant administrator, responsible for operations, scheduling and curriculum. In 2013, Roback left Rosemount to take a vice principal position at International School Bangkok in Thailand. He returned to the district in 2015 and was hired at Falcon Ridge Middle.
“I am honored and grateful to return to Rosemount High School, where I proudly served as a teacher, coach and administrator for 13 years,” Roback said. “Rosemount High is an innovative and collaborative learning community with a rich history of academic and co-curricular excellence. I am eager to work with and learn alongside the students, staff, parents and all members of the Rosemount community.”
