We are proud to announce that we have hired Nicolle R. Schroeder to be the new principal of Wauwatosa Catholic School. Mrs. Schroeder, a Wauwatosa resident, comes to us with 20+ years’ experience as an educator.
Her impressive resume includes:
Mrs. Schroeder offered the following about herself: “Building relationships with all stakeholders comes naturally to me which is vital to helping students achieve their academic, personal, and post-secondary goals. I take great pride in my visionary outlook and effective organizational abilities….”
The search committee was comprised of a trustee from each of our supporting parishes, two former principals (parishioners), a WCS teacher, who is also a WCS parent and a WCS administrator. There were a number of quality candidates for the position. All members of the committee ranked Mrs. Schroeder their top choice after two rounds of interviews. We believe that she will be a great leader and will provide stability and growth for our school. A sampling of comments from members of the search committee:
Mrs Schroeder is extremely well organized, smart, experienced, a good communicator, is invested in the Tosa neighborhood, prayerful, an honest and sincere commitment to continuous growth for students and staff, calm and thoughtful demeanor, approachable, positive energy, wants to be here and is excited about this opportunity…
We wish to honor Mrs. Schroeder’s current contracted employment, so she will not officially start at WCS until July 1st. However, between now and then she will be interacting with Dr. Burdick and members of the staff to get “up to speed” as much as possible before she starts.
We will be setting up meetings for you all to have an opportunity to meet and interact with Mrs. Schroeder. Please join us in welcoming her to our Wauwatosa Catholic community.
Greetings and blessings! I am delighted to be joining the Wauwatosa Catholic community as Principal. Pope Francis said, “In education dwells the seed of hope, a hope of peace and justice, a hope of beauty, of goodness; a hope of social harmony.” Hope is one of the main reasons I love working in education. Children’s futures are so full of promise and possibility! I look forward to meeting you all in the upcoming months. Till then, I wish you a Spring filled with hope and gratitude.
