Faculty and Staff

We, the faculty and staff at University School of Milwaukee, put students at the front of every decision we make, every day. Our Characteristics of Professional Excellence, which is shared below the directory, were written and adopted during the 2017–18 school year. These defining characteristics are used in meaningful ways in evaluations of our work and performance, but, most importantly, guide our daily work as we seek to create meaningful learning experiences, shape ethical decision makers, and model joy and balance in life. Although these characteristics are also aspirational, they are grounded in who we are today as a faculty and staff.
