Meet Mr. Renner

Spencer's Lead Learner, Chief Storyteller, and Principal


You are about to embark on a one-of-a-kind educational journey that only Brighton Area Schools can offer. This is one of the many reasons my wife and I call Brighton home and raise our children to earn a first-class education in this community.

I look forward to meeting you in person and helping make this year spectacular for you and your entire family.

As always, let me know how I can help.

Welcome Home!

Big picture
First, in order to stop Loki's newest scheme, Thor and Ant-Man go...antiquing? Then, while visiting The Amazing Spencer Elementary. Captain America runs into the nefarious Trapster! With scores of children in peril, Cap must rely on the aid of none other than Squirrel Girl! And, after Thor and Cap's difficulties, find out what the rest of the Avengers are up to on their day off hanging out with Mr.Renner and the students at Spencer. Chaos reigns as a fiendish villain makes off with one of Dr. Strange's most powerful artifacts!

A Little More About Mr. Renner

I hold an undergraduate degree, with a focus in Early Childhood Education, along with a graduate degree in Educational Leadership which were both earned from Eastern Michigan University.

I am a former Brighton educator, teaching kindergarten, first, fourth, and fifth grades. I left Brighton for a short time to begin my administrative career as a principal in the Brandon School District.

This is my fifth year at Spencer as principal, and the growth we made is AMAZING! I am excited about this year (even all of the unknowns!) as we try to connect with you on a variety of levels through social media outlets.

My wife and I have two boys, one a recent graduate from Brighton High School and our youngest a sophomore at BHS. We've found that Brighton has set up our boys for a bright future with many opportunities and hope you'll experience these same joys whether you're a returning family or new to the district.

Mr. Renner's Vision for Spencer:

At the completion of fourth grade, 100% of our students will be equipped with the skills and mindset that will allow them to thrive at Maltby.

Buckley our Therapy Dog

Imagine this...

You come to work and get to bring your dog with you!

Buckley is Spencer's therapy dog, and I am his handler. This means he comes with me to Spencer in the morning and comes home with me at the end of the day, pretty cool, huh?

We also have another surprise as far as therapy dogs at Spencer, more info to come soon!

I don't care if you laugh at me, or with me- just keep laughing! - Mr.Renner 😀
