I am Mrs. Kathy Wilson and I am very proud to be part of our Lincoln School community. This is my 7th year at LINCS, and my 19th year as an educator. I wish I had discovered Whitewater and LINCS earlier! I love that our guiding question is always, "What is best for students?"
Originally from the Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, my husband and I now live in Fort Atkinson. Our family has lived in Ohio, New Hampshire and New York before returning to Wisconsin. Right now our four children all live in Minneapolis. As a family we enjoy traveling, playing trivia, biking and watching our youngest in the University of Minnesota Marching Band. Go Gophs!
For the past 6 years, I was a Special Education Teacher here at Lincoln. Before that I taught middle school math, provided in-home support and education to young families, created community based family programming, taught at an alternative high school and worked for 10 years at my family's Italian grocery store. I studied Human Development (and Civil Engineering) at Marquette University and Special Education at Alverno College.

-My favorite story is Peter Pan.
-My favorite book series are "Pig the Pug" and "The Bad Guys" by Aaron Blabey
