A Welcome from Mrs. Goettl

Dear Elementary School Families and Cadott Community:

It is a tremendous honor to serve our community in the role of Elementary Principal.  My husband and I have proudly raised our two boys in this loving community.   We have enjoyed participating in many community activities from music theatre to coaching youth baseball, and will forever be enthusiastic Cadott Hornets!  I aim to work diligently with district staff, families, community members, and our students to uphold our community values, strengthen our schools, and continue the tradition of Hornet pride.

I am coming to Cadott with over 25 years of educational experience, teaching students with and without disabilities in small and large school systems.  Over the years I’ve migrated to school leadership roles including facilitating adult professional development, overseeing special education programs, mentoring teachers, supervising summer school, teaching at the University level, and most recently as an interim principal.  These responsibilities have helped me to become a strong, impactful, and passionate school leader.  Overall, I believe strong families, safe schools, and high quality education are key to student success. 

I am excited to work with our elementary and district staff, but especially with the students and families of Cadott Elementary.  I am humbled to step into this role, one that has been a dream of mine for many years.  I will serve you with optimism, intelligence, fairness, and a drive for continuous improvement.  I aspire to the words of Henry Ford "coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, working together is success".  May we "come together, stay together, and work together" for the success of the students of Cadott Elementary and the community as a whole!
