Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! It is going to be another exciting year of learning at Erin School. I am thrilled to have the privilege to serve the Erin School District as Middle School Principal and Curriculum Director.
Our school theme this year is Erin SPACE Mission; Boldly Go Where No Learner has Gone Before. During this year-long mission, students will explore Self -Control, Perseverance, Academic Behaviors, Compassion and Everyday Integrity. Developing these character traits will take our students on new frontiers. We are excited to start this mission together!
Embracing the strengths of our staff and community, Erin teachers continue to work together to create an engaging learning environment for all. Our teachers continue to clarify our “guaranteed curriculum,” one that all students experience as they grow and learn at Erin School. It is an exciting and challenging time in education as we prepare students for a world we can only imagine.
I joined the Erin staff at the start of the 2008-09 school year. Previously, I worked as the Director of Instruction for the Kewaskum School District and was a former middle school teacher in both Brown Deer and Waunakee School District. I hold a degree in Elementary/Middle Level Education from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and have a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Cardinal Stritch University. My husband and I live in Slinger with our four energetic children. I serve the district on a part-time basis, but can be reached via e-mail at any time. I welcome your questions and comments.
Beliefs that guide my work include:
- Teachers have the most significant influence on student achievement within factors that schools control.
- Parents are important partners in helping students meet their full potential.
- While all children have different strengths and needs, they all can learn and will demonstrate growth as a result of spending time in our classrooms.
- Learning should be fun and engaging!
I look forward to an “out of this world year” full of success, teamwork and high-quality learning for all at Erin School!
