Teachers at Seton Catholic Schools include experienced teachers who have worked in Catholic education for their entire career, new teachers who are just beginning their careers, and career changers who are entering the classroom after succeeding in another profession.
We welcomed nearly 50 new educators to our schools in 2016-17, and 45% of them are first year teachers and 16% identify themselves as people of color. The most prevalent preparation programs among new teachers are Marquette University, St. Norbert College, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Wisconsin Lutheran College.
Our school leaders have experience and backgrounds that are similar to our teachers, but they have typically spent a longer time in the classroom. Many of our school leaders have, or are currently participating in, leadership development programs with the Center For Urban Teaching in Milwaukee.
