I'm SO excited to start yet another year at Jefferson Elementary School!  This is my 10th year here, but I've been a teacher for almost 16 years.  I started at Jefferson as a 2nd grade teacher and was given a wonderful opportunity to teach Special Education.  I absolutely LOVE my job and all the children I am able to work with!  Jefferson is truly a special place :-)  This past summer, I finished my graduate program which only took me 11 months!  It was a lot of work, but wonderful work.  I was able to acquire a license in Principalship and Curriculum & Instruction.  Sometimes Ms. Cihlar may ask me to step in for her when she's not there, so this is another opportunity to work with even more amazing students!

I reside in Green Bay and enjoy it since I am a Packer fan!  My parents still live in the house that we grew up in and have been married for 41 years!  My sister is married with 3 children and my brother is also married with 4 children.  I am truly blessed to have all those nieces and nephews.  Our family has so much fun together and with that, get to share this with Eric as well.  We love to ride our Harley with friends and family, sit around a campfire, travel to various destinations, and of course laugh as often as we can!

Ms. A is the one Paraprofessional that I work directly with and does amazing work with the students.  She's energetic and her passion for children is impeccable!  Mrs. Hoefner is another Paraprofessional that your child/children may also talk about.  She is truly passionate to help all children and loves coming to work every day.  Mrs. Hoefner also works within our JCLC Program after school.

If you EVER need to get in touch with me for any reason, please feel free to contact me at 663-9377 or email me at
foytikt@mpsd.k12.wi.us. The best time(s) to reach me are before or after school.  If you try to contact me during the school day and I don't answer, just leave me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.  Sending an email is something that I check throughout the day, even after hours.  Our room is Room 111 which is diagonally across from the Music Room.

Here's to a fantastic 2016-17 school year!
