Welcome to Badger's New Principal

Welcome to Badger's New Principal
Posted on 04/25/2020
We are pleased to announce that Ms. Anne Marie Werley-Gonzalez has been named as the new principal of Badger Elementary School (starting July 1, 2020). 

Ms. Werley-Gonzalez is currently the Grade 4K-8 principal in the Yorkville School District in Union Grove, Wisconsin.  In her career, she has also served as an elementary bilingual classroom teacher, interventionist, and instructional coach in the Milwaukee Public Schools and School District of Waukesha.  

Ms. Werley-Gonzalez will replace Mr. Hopfensperfger, Badger’s visionary and inspirational principal, who will step down after leading Badger for the last seven years. (Mr. Hopfensperfger has been an educator for 33 years.)

Although Ms. Werley-Gonzalez will officially begin her position on July 1, 2020, she will be participating in transition activities with Mr. Hopfensperger between now and then.

Please join us in congratulating Ms. Werley-Gonzalez on her new position and welcoming her to the Appleton Area School District!
