Suring principal named Educator of Promise

MADISON — Pamela Berg, principal of Suring Public Schools, is one of 60 teachers, pupil services staff and administrators from around the state who have been named 2020 Educators of Promise by the state Department of Public Instruction, in collaboration with the Wisconsin Army National Guard and the Wisconsin Association for Middle Level Education

The group was selected for having a strong potential for educational and community leadership, according to an announcement. They were selected through a competitive process, focusing on readiness for learning and leading.

“Each of the educators named to be part of this prestigious group have such tremendous leadership potential,” State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor said. “This group of educators is dedicated to taking on the challenge of growing and using their voice and leadership ability to help Wisconsin students succeed in our schools.”

The 2020 Educators of Promise are invited to attend the 2020 Wisconsin Educator Leadership Rendezvous from July 21-23 at Fort McCoy.

The three-day leadership retreat is led by Wisconsin Army National Guard staff and teacher leaders, who serve as assistant squad leaders. With a goal of growing their ability to lead, attendees engage in hands-on learning, team-building activities and seminars.
