Michael Halstead, former regular and special education teacher, secondary alternative school principal, director of special education / pupil services, and interim superintendent of schools has devoted his career to providing services to all children, including those most difficult to teach. He has an extensive background in both urban and suburban schools and has been a leader in many school improvement initiatives including the Effective Schools process.
Mr. Halstead retired from a rich career in public education several years ago. The vast majority of his service in public education was in an administrative capacity. Shortly after retirement from public education Mr. Halstead accepted a position as an elementary school principal within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He has spent over six years as a principal within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and has found those years to be the most rewarding of his career.
