A new year brings new leadership to Tomahawk schoolsSubmitted: 09/10/2013
Story By Lex Gray


TOMAHAWK - The Tomahawk School District started the new school year with new leadership.

Sherry Baker took over the superintendent job in July, but now that students are back, she can get to the part of the job that she really likes.

"My stamp is to be out and about and in the classrooms and talking to the kids. Like when they're out there eating, I'm out there talking to them and talking to the teachers. I'm a teacher at heart," Baker says. "It's difficult for me to do the CEO work without being out there. I figure, there are evenings in my life, that's when I can do this paperwork."

Baker taught for more than 20 years in Rhinelander. She spent the last eight years as superintendent in Turtle Lake.

Baker doesn't plan on making major overhauls in the district, because the whole educational system is already undergoing big changes.

"My job here as the superintendent is to help the staff, to help the administration to make all of those changes doable, and yet do very well at them," she says.

One of Baker's first project is creating a new compensation plan for teachers.
