Please join Watersmeet Lakeguards (ISCCW) as we warmly welcome our new educator, Michelle Kanipes. Michelle’s role as ISCCW community educator aligns perfectly with her background as a professional educator. Michelle served as Principal, Curriculum and Instruction Director, and Athletic Director for the Washington Island School District in Door County, Wisconsin; she was the Principal in Ironwood, Michigan as well as the Dean of Students, Athletic/Activities Director and Literacy Coach for the Southern Door County School District in Brussels, Wisconsin. Michelle also taught special education as well as general education classes for 30+ years. These duties are merely a thumbnail sketch of what Michelle has contributed to the field of education.
Michelle’s work ethic, her organizational skills, and her professional acumen are undeniable. Her knowledge of invasive species articulated at the last board meetings and the information booth she’s set up at area lake association meetings are evidence that we are already reaping the fruits of her labor. There is no doubt that we are extremely lucky to have Michelle join our organization.
