Today, we feature Nichole Grube, a new social worker at , and elementary schools and part of the district administrative team.

Administrative assignment: I am a School Social Worker who will be working in three elementary schools — Dixon, Burleigh and Tonawanda.

Hometown, current community: I grew up in Waterford, WI and currently reside in Franklin.

Education, experience: I attended UW-Whitewater where I earned my bachelors degree in social work (BASW) and my masters from UW-Milwaukee (MSW). I previously worked in the Oak Creek-Franklin Joint school district for nine years. Prior to starting my school social work career I worked in various social work positions that included a nursing home, rehab unit as a discharge planner and hospital social worker.

Why did you choose Elmbrook? I learned of the opportunity for the school social work position in Elmbrook and took a chance to interview as I heard many wonderful things about the school district. I am very honored that I was chosen for the position and have found the professionalism, compassion and direction to all match perfectly to my vision for education.

Hobbies: I am a bit of a health nut that likes to live a happy balance to life. Exercising regularly, spending time with family and friends, listening to music and finding time for a good book or opportunity to relax are all things I do to maintain balance and harmony outside of work.

Favorite vacation: One of my favorite vacations with my children was my son’s Make-A-Wish trip to Disney world. It was wonderful to see my son and daughter live life in every moment that vacation had to offer. (He is surviving ALL - Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia). New York was also a favorite, so much to see and experience.
