Hello! My name is Jackie Wideman and this will be my fourth year working at Grewenow. I was born and raised in Kenosha and continue to live here with my husband Mark of 16 years, my 13 year old daughter Emma, and my 10 year old son, Jacob. Both my children attend schools in KUSD. We have a German Shepherd/Lab mix dog, Riley who is 7 years old. In addition to our pets, we have a turtle, Silly, and two guinea pigs, Rink and Hershey. As a family we love movie night, traveling, hiking and biking on the weekends, and just spending time outdoors as much as possible.
I received my undergraduate degree from UW-Whitewater with a major in Social Work, and minor in Sociology. I received my master’s degree at Loyola University of Chicago also in Social Work. Prior to working for KUSD, I worked 7 years for RUSD. I’ve also worked at hospitals, and hospice, just to name a few of my past careers. My favorite by far is working in education. I love the students, families, and staff at Grewenow!
