Hello! My name is Deanne Edlefsen and I am proud to be the Principal here at Malone Elementary School.  As the new administrator of your child’s school, I think it’s important that you know a little bit about my background. I received a BA degree in Interdisciplinary Studies/Anthropology from St. Cloud State University (1989) and a MSEd in Leadership K-12 Programs from Capella University (2005 & 2015).  I also received National Board Teacher Certification (2004) which means I have successfully participated in a rigorous process of developing teacher pedagogy.  I recently completed courses through Edgewood College for certification as Director of Instruction and through the University of Oshkosh for Educator Effectiveness Training.

I have been an educator for eighteen years in Minnesota, South Carolina and Wisconsin.  I have served as a teacher for ten of those years and an administrator for eight years. I participated and led in programs such as International Baccalaureate (IB) and leadership in the development and implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) as well as curriculum development. The past two years I have been the Principal of Roosevelt Elementary School in Janesville, WI. Last year Roosevelt was named a National Blue Ribbon School, only one of eight in all of Wisconsin!

I have two children, Casey (19) and Jack (22) as well as a cat (Nino) and a Golden Retriever (Murphy). I am very proud of my children, Casey is starting her second year at UW -Madison and Jack is working as a Special Education Aide in Oshkosh and plans on becoming a Special Education Teacher.

I have a high standard of excellence for students and staff with a desire for all to succeed.  I look forward to serving the staff, students and parents of Malone Elementary School.  I will strive to build positive relationships with the families of our students, all students and staff members.  Malone Elementary School continually looks for improvement and is driven by a school improvement plan that focuses on student achievement and positive student behavior and interactions with an emphasis on building relationships with all students.

I look forward to leading an incredibly dedicated and skilled staff here at Malone.  I am committed to providing your child with a quality education in a caring environment. I thank you for sharing your child with us and look forward to working with you to make this a successful school year.  Malone is a wonderful school and your child is in great hands. Please feel free to contact the school at #262-5463 if you have any questions or concerns, or to share thanks and appreciations.  I look forward to having open communication and a great working relationship with each and every one of you. It is my hope that you will always feel welcome to visit our school.
