Brenda Shimon is the new associate principal at Pulaski Community Middle School. She replaces Erin Adams, who served seven years in the role.

“We are thrilled to have her join our PCMS family, as she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise in working with students, staff, families and curriculum,” said PCMS principal Pat Fullerton. “Brenda's dedication and passion for education are truly commendable, and we are excited to witness the positive impact she will have on our school community.”

She has worked for the Southern Door School District for 25 years starting as a middle school science teacher and then transitioning to director of Pupil Services. Her last five years were spent as middle school principal and PK-12 curriculum director.

“Brenda’s experiences with curriculum, instruction, assessment and student services will be a great addition to both at the middle school and district level. She has a passion to meet each and every student’s needs and will carry on our work with Professional Learning Communities. We are eager to bring her on board in PCSD,” said Jenny Gracyalny, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning.

Shimon is a 1992 graduate of Southern Door High School. She graduated from St. Norbert College with a bachelor's degree in science and education. Her master’s program for licensure in principalship, curriculum and pupil services were all through Viterbo University.

She has been married to Jason Shimon for 24 years, and they have three children. Hailey is a junior at the University of St. Thomas studying pre-dental and neurology.  She also competes on the university’s track team throwing discus, hammer, shot put and weights.  Kendra and Alaina are twins and will be juniors in high school.  They are highly involved with club volleyball at FC Elite and also compete in track. They have a dog, Oakley, who is 2.  The Shimon family currently lives in Door County but plans to relocate to Suamico.

She enjoys spending time at their cabin in Crivitz, boating, and sitting by the campfire. She also loves to travel.

“I was attracted to PCMS because of the focus on students and PCMS having inclusive connections with the community,” Shimon said.
