What a waste for taxpayers. The Waukesha School district makes an investment in an individual and then that person leaves 7 months later. School administrators seem to be some of the biggest job hoppers around. Like their teacher counterparts, it sure seems to be all about the money and who really cares about the kids or taxpayers. I hope Shorewood enjoys employing her for the next 8-10 months.
