The Hamilton School Board appointed Robert Scott, Ph.D., the new Instructional Services supervisor at its April 20 meeting. Scott, who has been the New Berlin School District curriculum coordinator since 2006, will begin his new post effective July 1. He replaces Margaret Bauman, Ph.D., who announced her retirement after serving as head of Instructional Services since 1989.
Scott began his career in education in 1977 as a school social worker in Niles, Mich., and then taught special education students in several Wisconsin communities including Sheboygan, Portage and Oregon. He became principal of Evansville High School in 1993, and later moved on to Oregon High School where he was principal from 1988 to 2006.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in social science education from Michigan State University, his master’s degree in exceptional education from the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Milwaukee, and his doctorate in educational administration from UW-Madison.
Scott has been active in the National Staff Development Academy and Council and helped plan and implement Cardinal Stritch University’s Principal Induction Program.
“We have big shoes to fill with the retirement of Dr. Bauman,” said Hamilton Superintendent Kathleen Cooke, Ph.D. “I believe that Dr. Scott brings excellent experiences, qualifications and interpersonal skills to help us continue promoting high student achievement as we move forward with our new strategic plan.”
