Two of Menomonee Falls School District employees have been promoted to leadership positions in the district.
Dr. Gary Kiltz, high school principal, will become the Director of Curriculum and Learning starting next school year, and North science and social studies teacher and athletic and activities director Ryan Anderson will become the high school’s Director of Athletics and Activities.
Kiltz replaces Mary Dohmeier, who is leaving the state due to her husband’s promotion. Anderson replaces Dave Petroff, who is retiring this year.
“We are excited to welcome these rising stars to their new leadership posts. The community can be proud it has such a depth of talent and dedication on its school district’s staff,” said Superintendent Dr. Patricia Greco. “We thank Mary and Dave for their years of impeccable commitment and service, and wish them the very best in future endeavors.”
The district has begun the search for a new high school principal and North athletic director and teacher.
Kiltz, in his second year with the district, is already familiar with district leadership from serving as principal. He holds a Ph.D. in educational leadership from Arizona State University, a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a bachelor’s degree in social studies and alternative education from UW-Madison.
“I’m excited to join the administrative team in my new role,” he said. “We are implementing several innovative programs to help students better learn at every level, and I’m elated for the opportunity to become a leader in that process. I look forward to following up on the brilliant work Mary has started.”
