Staff Member: MARY WIDMANN
My name is Mary Katherine Widmann and I am very excited to be the new principal and be part of the team/family at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School in Sheboygan!
I have a BS in Early Childhood Education, 1-8 licensure with a minor in English, Reading Teacher and Reading Specialist licensure, MS in Curriculum & Instruction, and a Master’s in Director of Curriculum & Instructional and Administrative Leadership (Principal). My passion is reading and I have most recently served as a District Reading Specialist in the Northshore area. I have taught in urban, suburban, private and public schools and I understand the importance of building community and fostering strong partnerships with families to work together on behalf of all students for advancing achievement and success.
I am a Bella Via dance and North Shore United soccer mom for Emma (17), Ben (15) and Abby (12). We are parish members at St. Joseph Parish in Grafton where I have been a Religious Education teacher, VBS volunteer, and serve as the trainer and schedule coordinator for acolytes. As well, I was blessed to be married to the most loving, and brilliant man named Jarrod for 17 years before he lost his brave fight to leukemia about two years ago... from that my family learned to always trust God, be thankful for all your blessings, be the feet and hands of Christ for others, and live everyday to the fullest!
Other facts about me: I grew up in Franklin, Wisconsin; lived in Connecticut, and worked at Yale University; I run 10 miles each and every day; I love to vacation in Florida (Disney is magical!); HUGE Harry Potter fan; Tom Brady New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers supporter; J and I met Giannis Antetokounmpo mid-court with my son before a game about a year and a half ago!
