As the administrative assistant at the district, Jeri has a wide range of duties. On a daily basis she trains new staff members in their Skyward system, maintains state and federal reporting, makes various master scheduling changes, sets up alerts, makes gradebook corrections, troubleshoots, corrects Skyward WISEdata errors and more. Because Jeri is the district’s go-to person for all things Skyward, the district created a special title for her: student information specialist. 

When COVID-19 hit and presented many unknowns, Jeri jumped right in to make sure Brown Deer School District was as prepared as it could be. She helped set up the district’s online registration platform with Skyward, instituting an online parent/teacher conference. Jeri also sits on committees that help lead the integration of COVID-19 standards and virtual school meshing. 
Outside of keeping the district running smoothly, Jeri spends her free time contributing to community growth. She is the adviser for the Mentoring Program and Best Buddies. She got her Mentors involved in the district’s Shop With a Cop program, which gives students with free and reduced lunch an opportunity to holiday shop for loved ones. Amazingly, she also finds the time to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House, American Heart Association, Alzheimer's Association, local church fundraisers, and opens her home to foster dogs.
