Catholic Education and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has been my home since I graduated from college in 1995. I spent 25 years at St. Peter in Slinger where I had the opportunity to teach in many capacities. I was able to help many students develop a love of learning. It was there that I began to seek out and gravitate to roles that placed me in leadership positions and committee involvement. I became an advocate for changes that enhanced student growth, achievement, well-being and staff production. These amazing experiences led me to further my education. My background includes a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and Exceptional Education Needs and a Masters in Educational Leadership and Curriculum Instruction and Design all from Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee.
I have been married to my husband Tom for 31 years. We have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. We are fortunate to spend a lot of time together with our family. We travel often to our cabin in Wautoma. The grandchildren get a kick out of Papa teaching them to fish and telling stories by the campfire enjoying a smore no less. We have a large vegetable garden that I enjoy taking care of and spend a lot of time canning the produce from it in Fall.
I love serving as your principal! It is both a privilege and honor. I am passionate about developing relationships, continued growth of the school, working with students as they grow, supporting teachers and staff, strengthening a connection between school and home, and fostering a positive school culture. I look so forward to this year and many more to come.
Please know that my door is always open. Feel free to stop in, call, or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this year a great one!
