Biographies of the Governance Council
Margaret Mulqueen, KMSD
Margaret Mulqueen is an English teacher at Kettle Moraine High School. She graduated from Carroll College (University) in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and she graduated from Viterbo University in 2006 with a Master of Education. Her interest in HS2 stems from her teaching Advance Placement Language and Composition, which focuses on non-fiction. Her love of teaching non-fiction transfers to types of seminars the design team is building, and how reading, writing, and critical thinking apply to the various careers in the medical field. Her role on HS2's Governance Council not only allows her the opportunity to grow; but it also allows her to work with others on structuring a school that is so unique and inspirational.
