Why Whitewater?

After living in Racine for more than a decade, we were ready for a change. My family has a lot of connections to Whitewater because of the University. I am looking forward to working within the community I live and where my 2 boys attend school.

About Me

Prior to moving to Whitewater my family lived in Racine, and I worked at Kenosha Unified School District preschool to 12th grade. I was itinerant meaning I was assigned to multiple schools, primarily Preschool - 1st and Middle School.  My family includes Dale who works at UW-Whitewater and 2 boys who live at home and attend the Whitewater schools.  I also have an older stepson, who attends UW-Whitewater.   I also have a great dog, and really want to get a kitten.  I enjoy reading, building things and walk the dog. As a family we enjoyed exploring outdoors by hiking and backpacking.  I enjoy reading, building things and walking the dog. As a family we enjoy exploring outdoors by hiking and backpacking.
