Meet Amanda Barttelt Schermetzler

Ms. Barttelt, as she is known to her elementary students, has worked in the Sheboygan Area School District for 14 years, with 11 of those years as the Lincoln-Erdman Principal.

Ms. Barttelt’s husband also works for the SASD as a technology education teacher at North and South High Schools. He oversees the home-building project. They have two sons - one at Lincoln-Erdman and one at Urban Middle School.

What is something you look forward to each year? My favorite two events are Trunk or Treat and Grub with the Grich (formerly Santa Breakfast). They are both family fun activities that allow me to interact with kids in a different setting.

What inspired you to work in the education field? I have always wanted to work with kids. Early on, I babysat my younger cousins, and in college, I spent my summers as a camp counselor. One of my favorite teachers was my High School German Teacher. He always held us to high standards but cared deeply about all of his students. He does his best to keep in touch with all of us, even those who graduated high school 25 years ago!
