By Kris Leonhardt
PLOVER – Lyndsey Larkin has been named as the new principal of Pacelli Catholic Elementary School-St. Bronislava (PCES-St. Bron’s) in Plover. Larkin started in her new position on July 5. She comes to the Stevens Point-Plover area from the Fox Valley area.
“My family has been in the area for many years, and growing up my sister went to UWSP. I have always loved this area and everyone is always so friendly. There is also so much offered in this area. We also spent a lot of time in the Waupaca area as kids,” said Larkin
“I have been a teacher for over 15 years, and the last five years it has been a goal to become an administrator. Once receiving my administrator license, I was open to where I would find a new position. When I saw the posting for Pacelli, I was instantly interested, especially since I have been a practicing Catholic all my life. I feel as though I have been given the best of both worlds. A place to call home as an administrator, as well as a place to practice my faith.”
“Larkin has spent over 15 years of her career teaching K-12 special education at Susie C. Altmayer Elementary School in De Pere, Langlade Elementary School in Green Bay, and Appleton West High School in Appleton. Her most recent role was serving as a K-4 Cross-Categorical Special Education Teacher at New Holstein Elementary School in New Holstein. Larkin also worked as a special education director in the Behavioral Health Unit at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton and as a progression advisor for international students at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Fox Cities Campus in Menasha,” a Pacelli release stated.
“Larkin earned her bachelor of science in education from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and her master of science in educational psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She also received a director of special education and pupil certification from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.”
She said that she is very passionate about meeting student’s needs and differentiating instruction for students.
“As a principal, I look forward to expanding my role to work with students and their families, the staff, church and community. I want everyone to know I am here to help in any way possible. My hopes are to help our school grow, and strengthen the bond even more between the school, church and community!. I have loved every minute so far, and met so many wonderful people. This has been a validation of what a great system and community I have been blessed to become a part of,” Larkin said.
