About Mrs. Fitzgerald

I began my teaching career 20 years ago after earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Clarke University. I have been a classroom leader for nearly every elementary grade, and served as an instructional coach in the Kenosha Unified School District for five years. I joined Salem two years ago from my last post as Dean of Students at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha. 

I hold a Master's Degree in School Administration and Supervision. My husband, Ryan, and I live in Salem with our two sons, Brody, a student and Air Force ROTC cadet at UW-Milwaukee, and Isaac, a student at Wilmot Union High School. 

The students, families, and staff make Salem such a wonderful place to learn. I look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence that Salem has earned, and building an even stronger community of learners.
