Principal/Director of Curricululm


Kalina

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  I am confident that it will be another exciting year of learning at Erin School. I am thrilled to have the privilege to serve  Erin School District as Middle School Principal and Curriculum Director.

Got grit?  Well if you are a student or staff member at Erin, this is a question you will be learning a lot about this year!  Our Comeback Crew, otherwise known as our teachers and support staff members look forward to modeling grit and resilience as we help our students navigate this year.  We are committed to helping each child find joy, demonstrate resilience and grow our collective grit while learning some pretty amazing content too! As always, Mr. Mueller and our Fuel Up team will have a school song and dance to help us celebrate our accomplishments!

Embracing the strengths of our staff and community, Erin teachers continue to work together to create an engaging learning environment. 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 and our one really energetic black lab.  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 the classroom.
  • 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 grow after spending time in the classrooms at ERIN school.
  • Learning should be fun and engaging!

I look forward to a year full of  teamwork, high-quality learning and building our grit along the way for each and every student at Erin School!
