Madeira's School Board approved the hiring of a new district Treasurer and a new middle school principal at its March 18 meeting. Mrs. Emily Hauser will be the next Treasurer and Mrs. Nicole Huelsman will serve as the next Madeira Middle School Principal. “We’re excited to have both of these administrators joining our team in Madeira,” said Kenji Matsudo, Superintendent.
Mrs. Emily Hauser will join Madeira after having served at St. Bernard-Elmwood Place for the last four years. Mrs. Hauser is highly regarded in the treasurer field as a very detailed, thoughtful, and student-centered treasurer. She's knowledgeable on school finance and has also had experience advocating at the State House on behalf of how school districts are funded. “I’m extremely honored and proud to serve the students, teachers, and parents of Madeira. There is a great tradition of excellence within Madeira and I’m excited about joining that tradition,” said Hauser. Hauser officially begins her new role on August 1 but will be working with retiring Madeira Treasurer Susan Crabill through the summer to ensure a smooth transition.
Mrs. Nicole Huelsman will be the Principal at Madeira Middle School Principal for the 2019-2020 school year. Mrs. Huelsman has been the Principal at King's Jr. High School for the past 4 years. Prior to serving at Kings, Mrs. Huelsman was an Assistant Principal at Mason High School for 8 years as well as being a special education teacher prior to administration. “As a child, I spent many days visiting with my grandparents in Madeira. From those visits, I knew it was a special place. I am honored and excited to become a part of such a dedicated community and I look forward to working with MMS students, parents, and the staff,” said Huelsman.
The Board also accepted the resignations of long-time MES teacher and resident Jeanne Gulick and Assistant Superintendent Tim Weber at Monday’s meeting. Mrs. Gulick has been with the district for 29 years and will be retiring after helping many, many students over the years at MES. Assistant Superintendent Tim Weber resigned to accept a new role as Superintendent in Wyoming City Schools. “We will miss them both,” said Matsudo. “Jeanne has been an important part of our elementary school experience for many years.” Referencing Weber, Matsudo said, “Tim Weber is a charismatic leader and a trusted friend and we wish him well as he takes on his new role in Wyoming. He is no doubt going to provide outstanding leadership to an already great district.”
