Whitewater Introduction - Brad Gefvert

Dear Lincoln Elementary Families, 

It is with great excitement and pride that I am joining the Lincoln family.  In my brief time getting to know Lincoln culture, I have found that there is an overwhelming love amongst our students, families and staff for the positive and supportive culture of the building and the family atmosphere.  As a team, we will make every effort to meet the needs of each and every student through academic, social and emotional development.  

I have spent a majority of my life in and around the Whitewater community.  I grew up in Delavan and have been an associate principal at Fort Atkinson High School for the past eight years.  Prior to Fort Atkinson, I was an agricultural science teacher, FFA advisor and coach in Portage.  I am a proud husband and father to five amazing children.  As a family we love to be active in the outdoors, participate in athletics and enjoy working on our hobby farm.  

My education includes a bachelor's degree from UW- Platteville in Agricultural Education. After several years teaching I completed a Masters in Science from UW- River Falls and then obtained my Educational Leadership Certificate through Viterbo University.  

I look forward to meeting the Lincoln students, families and staff and building relationships throughout the next school year. Together we will continue to build upon the already strong, positive culture and academic successes that Lincoln brings to our students each and every day!
