Ryan Evans, a seventh-grade social studies teacher at S.E. Gross Middle School will become the assistant principal at that institution next year. The District 95 school board unanimously voted to hire Evans who also is a member of the Brookfield Village Board.
Evans, who will be paid $60,000 in his new job, will replace Wayne Porod who is retiring after a long career in District 95. Porod has served as assistant principal at Gross School for the last two years after many years as a teacher and counselor.
"I'm excited that I can extend my role here at the school from teacher into administrator," Evans said. "I think that I can work with all the grade levels of students now, making respectful, responsible citizens and also helping staff in their craft."
