Exeter-Milligan School District Personnel Changes

Exeter-Milligan school board has accepted the resignation of four teachers and the elementary principal at the end of the 2010-2011 school year.
After working in the district for 10 years Elementary Principal Mari Lyn Poppert submitted her resignation in February after her husband Jon, a former Exeter-Milligan Elementary Principal and current Superintendent at Giltner accepted the Superintendent position at St. Paul, Neb.  The family is moving to St. Paul this summer.
Also leaving the Exeter-Milligan district are Karen Kahler, the fifth grade teacher who is retiring after 28 years in the district and fourth grade teacher Susan Wait who has taught in the district for two years.  Wait is headed to Beatrice where she will be a reading specialist for the district.
At the high school level, Grant Gabel is leaving after teaching science for two years, he is headed to his hometown of Shelby, Neb.  Chris Lewandowski, secondary history teacher and technology coordinator has accepted a position at Malcolm, Neb. after coaching and teaching at Exeter-Milligan for ten years.
So far the district has filled all of the vacated positions. Mrs. Laura Kroll who has served as the reading program coordinator for the last two years will assume the duties of elementary principal.  Mrs. Shelli Mueller, an Exeter graduate who has taught in York for the past few years will be teaching the fourth grade at the Milligan campus while Mr. Brent Zoubek who comes to the district from Dorchester will be teaching fifth grade.
Joining the secondary staff will be Matt Nicholas and Jordan Marr. Superintendent Paul Sheffield "looks forward to starting the new year with some new people on board" and reminds the public of the open house at both campuses on Friday August 12th from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. where the community is invited to tour the school and visit with the current and new faculty.

Words cannot express our extreme loss when Chris Lewandowski leaves the school district. He was the kind of teacher (rare) that could command discipline yet also be loved by students. GOOD LUCK MR. LEW !
