Alex Hubing, Principal

Contact Phone:  608-789-6602

My name is Alex Hubing and I am honored to serve students and families as the principal of Lincoln Middle/SOTA II/Coulee Montessori. Prior to joining the team at Lincoln, I was the Dean of Students at Logan Middle School here in La Crosse for three years. Before working at Logan Middle, I taught 6th grade science at Onalaska Middle School for eight years. I moved to the La Crosse area in 2006 where I completed my undergraduate work at UW-La Crosse. While teaching in Onalaska, I completed my master’s degree in Educational Leadership at Viterbo University. My wife Alie and I have two boys, ages eight and four. We love spending time outdoors hiking the bluffs and fishing on the river. We feel blessed to call this beautiful area home! I firmly believe that in order to fully meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our children, we must forge strong partnerships between families and the educational community that serves them. I look forward to working with you and your family to make this a special year for your child.

My name is Garrett Fischer and I am excited to be the new the Dean of Students at Lincoln /Coulee Montessori/SOTA II Middle School. I also share Athletic Director responsibilities and help support the variety of extra curricular programs offered  at Lincoln /Coulee Montessori/SOTA II Middle School. I am eager to continue working with the students, families, staff, and community that make up these three amazing schools! I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater near my home town of Watertown Wisconsin. Upon completion of my undergraduate work, I quickly moved to La Crosse. I taught at State Road Elementary for 7 years and moved over to teach at Lincoln Middle School for another 2 years. In 2015, I earned my Masters of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Educational Leadership from Viterbo University. I am proud to work for a school that strives to ensure that all students can learn and succeed both in and out of the classroom. Communication is important to me and I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. You can contact me via district email or phone. I’m looking forward to working with you and your children this upcoming school year!
