Whitewater Introduction - Brent Mansky
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the next principal of Whitewater High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of excellence in academics, the arts, and co-curricular programs in such a supportive community. I am looking forward to joining the excellent team assembled within the Whitewater School District and working with you as a partner in education to ensure a successful and enjoyable experience for all students.
My wife Alison and I currently reside in Williams Bay with our children, Brynn (8) and Braden (6). We enjoy traveling, playing sports, and spending time outdoors around the Castle Rock Lake area. I am also an avid golfer and we are proud supporters of all Wisconsin sports teams.
I am from Waunakee, WI and graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a BA in Broadfield Social Studies (Economics) and hold a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Cardinal Stritch University. I have spent the past 19 years in Wisconsin public education in a variety of roles. I began my career as a teacher at Black Hawk High School and spent fifteen years as a social studies teacher at Westosha Central High School before serving as the principal at Williams Bay Middle/High School for the past two years. Additionally, I have spent the last five years with Economics Wisconsin as an instructional coach. I have also served as a varsity-level basketball (18 years) and football (10 years) coach at all stops throughout my educational experiences at Eleva-Strum, Hudson, Black Hawk, Westosha Central, and Richmond-Burton (IL) High School.
As your principal, it is important to me that we build strong relationships to ensure that our students are actively involved in their school experience in order to benefit from all of the opportunities we offer. We will continue to develop individuals with good character, compassion, and integrity who understand the importance of citizenship and responsibility in our global society. Additionally, we will provide a variety of academic and career pathways that will allow students to individualize their course of study to meet their college and career goals. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door will always be open and I welcome your input!
I look forward to getting to know all the members of the Whitewater school community in the months ahead. I am impressed at the level of excitement, pride and commitment to excellence that is present in the entire school community and look forward to transitioning to my new role on July 1st.
Sincerely, Brent Mansky
