It would help if you had a passport to track down the stops Dr. Brett Strousland has made before arriving at Gibraltar Area Schools this month. A Wisconsin native, his teaching career actually began on a Native American reservation in New Mexico. He took on several roles at a Wisconsin school district, including elementary school principal, before he and his family moved to Croatia and Cyprus where he was a K-12 principal. Strousland and his family eventually returned to Wisconsin, where he was the superintendent for school districts in Barneveld and Germantown before landing the top spot at Gibraltar. He is excited to grow into his position at Gibraltar and bring his global experiences with him to the office.
Strousland was hired this spring to replace the retiring Tina Van Meer. He is looking forward to having the kids back in school when they begin the academic year on September 6th.
