School Director

Morales is a “North County boy,” who has lived in Encinitas and Carlsbad, and graduated from San Marcos High School. After three years at Palomar College, his passion for football led him over 1,560 miles where he played at the collegiate level at Missouri Southern State University. While football was a major passion of his, Morales’ main agenda was finding his footing in the educational system.  He has a Masters in Latin American studies at UCSD.

In 2006 his leadership career began, Morales ventured to Canyon Crest Academy for two academic years as a Spanish teacher before transferring to Valley Middle School- where he would spend two years as the Assistant Principal and four as the Principal. Between 2006-2012 at Valley, Morales enjoyed observing the friendships, blooming relationships, school dances, and the growth of the middle school students. 

After spending six years in developing himself and the staff around him, however, Morales was presented with a unique opportunity. One conversation with his supervisor developed into a series of meetings about taking command of a brand-new high school opening on Cannon Road.

Fast forward to August 28, 2013 and Morales’ team was ready to welcome in 308 freshmen as the first class in Sage Creek’s history. From directing traffic in his neon green vest to greeting each student dressed in his suit and tie, Morales immediately acted to create a strong sense of community. Although many programs and processes were on a trial and error basis, he helped the school evolve into a blooming academic environment, leading the school to an enrollment growth equivalent to 4 times its opening enrollment.

We are very happy to have Mr. Morales joining KSI and the entire school community is very excited about  the new ideas, energy and leadership that he will bring to KSI Panama.

Johan Meijering has been a full-time classroom teacher for 22 years. After a period in Holland, he went to Kupang, Indonesia for 3 years. There he taught different grades at the Dutch-American school. Political circumstances made a further stay impossible and after returning to Holland in 1999, he started working in The Hague. He worked there for 17 years as a full-time classroom teacher in almost all grades. But working abroad was always something he wanted to do again and last year he had the chance to start up the Dutch school, Miraflores, in Panama. As principal/teacher of the school, he found out that he is a teacher with all his heart and soul and being a principal is not the position that gave him complete satisfaction. Johan is very grateful to be given the opportunity to follow his true passion and teach.
