Meet Andrea Zackery, Assistant Administrator and Principal of Riverview School. Andrea joined the Riverview Family on July 1, 2010. Andrea came to us from the Salem School District where she held a position as an upper grade Special Education teacher.
Andrea grew up in Salem, graduated from Salem Grade School and Central High School. She earned her bachelor degree from UW-Oshkosh and her Masters from Carthage.
Mrs. Zackery has 18 years experience teaching in the elementary grades. She previously taught special education at Bullen Junior High School and Wilson Elementary in Kenosha. Andrea has demonstrated through a variety of educational experiences her strengths as a leader. She has also had the opportunity to obtain experience from many leadership roles which include, but are not limited to, participating in the development of the Salem Booster Club where she took on whatever role necessary to get the job done; athletic director, volunteer coordinator, etc.
We are very fortunate to have found someone with Andrea’s educational experience, diverse background, and personal drive for excellence. She is a perfect complement to John Gendron, our new District Administrator, in driving positive change at Riverview. Andrea has an exceptional passion for students and has proven that she will not stop working until all students have found success.
Andrea has an ability to communicate and create a vision for Riverview. Her passion and energy are second to none. With her “hands on” approach and vision to foster a climate where students and staff alike are able to find success, it is clear that Andrea will help to take Riverview to the next level. Andrea's positive personality and focus on students will bring instant energy and passion to our school. She also brings expertise in special education, data analysis, best practices in teaching and learning, student discipline, and many other areas. Her strengths and talents match perfectly to what the staff and community are looking for in a principal.
Andrea, her husband Marcus and their three children currently reside in Salem. Her children are 14, 9 and 2 years of age. In her spare time, Andrea can be seen cheering on her children at any number of their sporting events or in the stands cheering on her New “Comet” Family. An avid Bear fan, Andrea loves the friendly rivalry that exists within the walls of Riverview between the Bears and Packer Fans. With a very fun loving nature, rarely do you see Andrea without a smile on her face or an amusing story to share.
Mrs. Zackery will help lead Riverview forward and make it an even better place for students, staff, and parents.
