Tara Foytik, Student Success Leader

Miss Foytik 

I'm SO excited to start yet another year at Jefferson Elementary School!  I've been an educator since the year 2000.  I started at Jefferson as a 2nd grade teacher and was given a wonderful opportunity to teach Special Education, which I have been lucky to do for 12 years.  This year my role has changed yet again.  I will be able to work with even more students, families and staff members which REALLY excites me as a Student Success Leader.  Jefferson is truly a special place :-)  I finished my graduate program which only took me 11 months in 2016!  I was able to acquire a license in Principalship and Curriculum & Instruction.  

I reside in Green Bay and enjoy it since I am a Packer fan!  My parents have been married for over 40 years and reside in Appleton.  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 excitement with Eric as well.  We love to make memories with friends and family, sit around a campfire, travel to various destinations, and of course laugh as often as we can!  I truly believe in always learning something new, so I decided to go back to school to acquire my Principalship and Curriculum & Instruction licenses.  What a journey, but something that has allowed me grow as a person and educator.  

If you EVER need to get in touch with me for any reason, please feel free to contact me at the following numbers:  office: 663-9377,  cell phone: 323-5736  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. 


Here's to a fantastic school year!
