Dear Madison Elementary Staff, Parents, and Students​:​

It is an honor to introduce Breanne Willms as the next principal at Madison Elementary School.  Mrs. Willms is a ​current special education dean with the district and prior to this role, she was a special education teacher at Wilson, and a former student of Madison Elementary. She also served Milwaukee Public Schools as a teacher for several years.

The interview panel made up of other principals in the district, parents, teachers, staff members, district leaders, and School Board members selected Mrs. Willms from a strong applicant pool.  The final decision was difficult with the final two candidates each interviewed three times.

What stood out during the interview​s was Mrs. Willms's deep understanding of effective instruction and her commitment to supporting teachers to accomplish ​their best. The panel members were also impressed with Mrs. Wilms's commitment to holding students to high academic and behavioral expectations while developing a positive and caring school culture where all students can thrive.

Mrs. Willms is a high-energy leader that is both focused and fun.  Please join me in welcoming Breanne Willms as the next principal at Madison Elementary School.

Sincerely,

Dr. Marty Lexmond
Superintendent
