Beth Kwakkel - Business Education Teacher
I live in Ripon with my husband John, daughter Lily (7), and son JD (4). I have worked in Human Resources for the past 13 years and have been an Adjunct Instructor at MPTC for two years.
After high school, I went to UW Oshkosh and completed a Bachelor of Business Administration degree majoring in Human Resources. After graduation, I began working at General Beverages Sales Co. – Oshkosh in Human Resources. I worked full-time while completing my Masters in Organizational Leadership from Marian University. In 2011, I began as the Institution HR Director for Waupun Correctional Institution where I worked until July 2017.
During college, I became inspired to teach. Education built my self-confidence, inspired me to do more, and taught me that nothing is out of reach if you work hard. I want to help students reach their full potential.
I hope to provide the students of Rosendale-Brandon School District a better understanding of the real-world work environment. I hope to assist them in gaining valuable transferable skills that will be of value in the workforce from their first job all the way to their future long-term career.
