Welcome to 7th Grade Main

Meet the 7th Grade Assistant Principal - Roger Hetge

Hetge Pic

 I have worked in the Alton School District for 22 years.   I started as a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Horace Mann, then taught Science and Social Studies at East Middle School.  I have been the assistant principal for the Piasa House since the establishment of Alton Middle School in 2006. 

I am dedicated to Alton and education.  I am a lifelong resident of Alton, IL and an Alton High graduate, class of 1985.  Following high school, I attended SIUE and earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  I returned to SIUE to earn a master’s degree in Instructional Technology.  I then pursued an administrative Type 75 certification for school administration.  I am currently enrolled in the specialist’s program at SIUE for educational administration to earn a superintendency endorsement.    I am committed to a lifelong pursuit of knowledge and education and want to inspire my students to do the same. 

I have two beautiful children; RJ and Gracie.  Both of my children are currently enrolled in the Alton School District.  My goal is for all of my students to ‘dream big’ and gain as much knowledge as possible to prepare themselves for their future lives.  I also have high expectations for exemplary behavior to benefit all students while at Alton Middle School and throughout the community. 

Outside of school, I enjoy time with my family, friends, and nature. I also have a passion for recycling natural resources.  I believe we should be cognizant on how our resources are used and our impact on future generations. 

AMS Jr. Redbirds are Alton Strong!
