The Hamilton School Board approved the appointment May 16 of Martha Freeman as the Special Services supervisor, contingent on contract release from her current employer. Freeman replaced Charlene DeGroot who will retire in June. Freeman will begin her position July 1.
“We are pleased to be able to hire an individual whose abilities and expertise will allow her to provide strong leadership in the Special Services Department,” Hamilton Superintendent Kathleen Cooke said. “Ms. Freeman is a highly collaborative problem-solver capable of working with divergent populations and cultivating creative solutions.”
For the past four years, Freeman was the Student Services director for the Greenfield School District. She had been a program support teacher in Greenfield before assuming the administrative post. She began her career in education in the Waukesha School District where she worked for 16 years in teaching positions and as a diagnostic teacher.
Freeman earned her bachelor’s degree in 1978 from Carthage College and her master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
