Dr. Ann Yehle has been named principal of McKinley Middle School, replacing Lori Sue Pelk, who took a job in North Carolina.
Dr. Yehle will join the district on Sept. 15. Most recently she was executive director of Educational Services for the Madison School District, where she previously was a middle school principal and special education teacher. She also worked for the Department of Public Instruction as an administrator for the Title I, principal leadership and support to the Milwaukee Public Schools.
Supt. Jim Shaw said, "Dr. Yehle's experience in urban education will provide the leadership for McKinley Middle School to improve student achievement and reach the goals of the district's North Star vision. Her experience as a school leader will help build an inclusive school community with a focus on integrated units, small teams, collaborative time, community involvement, and student voice."
