Welcome to Lincoln Elementary School!
My name is Mary Kilar, and I am so excited to be joining with you
to celebrate your child's accomplishments at Lincoln (LINCS).
We are a team!
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education from UW-Whitewater, and a Masters in Educational Leadership from National Louis University. I have over 15 years experience as a Principal, four years as the Director of the Jefferson County Early Intervention Program, and five years of hands-on teaching in both the regular education and special education classrooms.
Personally, my greatest accomplishment is being mom to my four beautiful children; and a foster mom to many.
I am a life-long learner who believes in fostering relationships with colleagues, caregivers, community members, teachers and students to increase student achievement and build positive connections. I believe all children deserve a safe, inspiring, and innovative school to learn within. All children can learn, and at Lincoln, we are committed to igniting the innate desire to discover, inquire, question, and achieve!
Originally from Milwaukee, Whitewater is now our home. My husband Mike and I have resided in this wonderful town for over twenty years. The Whitewater community cares about students, families, and creating a community of learning for a brighter future. There has been no better place to call home, and I look forward to working with all of you!
