It is an honor and privilege to lead Brookfield Academy as Mrs. Sharon Koenings passes the baton to me. I sincerely thank her for the years of dedicated service, leadership, and insight. Despite a year of such uncertainty, Mrs. Koenings kept our school open and oversaw the successful completion of another year of classical, liberal arts instruction, always keeping BA’s mission and philosophy solidly intact.
During my transition to the Head’s role, Mrs. Koenings served as my mentor, providing the knowledge and confidence to do what we, as a school community, do best – prepare students for success in school and beyond through the Brookfield Academy experience. My 30-plus years as a teacher, coach, mentor, and administrator have given me the opportunity to learn from truly outstanding Heads, including Dr. Nyle Kardatzke and Dr. Bob Solsrud. It has been an amazing journey seeing our school’s growth and commitment, witnessing how we have never wavered from our Founders initial vision in 1962. It is my sincere hope that I will follow in the tradition of past leaders. I am counting on the continued support of our committed Board of Directors, team of administrators, and dedicated staff.
With this in mind, everything we do begins with the combined efforts of the Brookfield Academy community - faculty, parents, students, and alums. Our students, faculty, and programs will continue to reflect our Five Stars. I am grateful for the tremendous support of our generous graduates and parents who have faithfully demonstrated their dedication to this school. Brookfield Academy is a special place, and I am proud, yet humbled, to lead this extraordinary institution into the future.
