Linda Rosen, Wisconsin Conference Superintendent for Education, has announced her retirement effective August 1, 2019. Some of Linda’s contributions as Education Superintendent for the past nine years include establishing our Outdoor Education program for 5th and 6th graders, starting the annual Spelling Bee for 3rd and 4th graders, restructuring the Education Fair, and developing a Science Expo for 7th-10th graders. Linda has expanded the use of technology to aid teachers with reports and resources, launched literacy testing for students, began the process of Professional Learning Communities for teachers in Wisconsin, and provided mentorship for those aspiring to be in educational leadership.
Linda has taught at Sunnyside SDA School here in Wisconsin. Her experience also includes teaching in public school, tutoring, serving on North American Division and Lake Union committees, and teaching at the Lake Union Small Schools Workshop.
“I sincerely appreciate the many blessings and opportunities given me while working for the Wisconsin Conference both as a teacher and superintendent,” said Linda. “It has truly been a blessing to work with the teachers, school personnel, and the office team. I have appreciated the friendship many of you have extended to me. While I look forward to enjoying my retirement, I will miss being part of our team. Thank you for the opportunity to serve in this conference.”
Linda will be deeply missed. As a dedicated, loving, and skilled educational leader, many students and teachers have benefited from her innovative teaching style, practical wisdom and years of experience. It is with mixed feelings that we say good-bye and wish her, and her husband Dwight, all the best in retirement.

P.S. from Linda:
I would like to invite you to join the Koinz 4 Kidz movement. Church members are saving their change in Koinz 4 Kidz containers for elementary school scholarships. Here is what your church can do to participate:
1. Give Koinz 4 Kidz containers to those who want to participate
2. Set goals
3. Have members bring in the containers packed with change
Through the generosity of people who want to support Adventist education we are able to award hundreds of dollars in scholarships to elementary students.
If you would like to know more about participating in this rewarding and benevolent project contact me at email@example.com or 920-484-6555.
Thank you so much,
Linda Rosen, Superintendent of Education
