Dr. Robert Hall
In April 2016 at its monthly meeting, Elmbrook Board of Education named Dr. Robert Hall as the Executive Director of LAUNCH – a new program opportunity for Elmbrook junior and senior students beginning in September 2017 that seeks to connect rigorous learning with real-world, hands-on projects provided by area business and industry. LAUNCH is built on the principles of profession-based learning, professional skills development, self-discovery and exploration, entrepreneurial mindsets, and responsiveness to the needs of students and businesses.
Superintendent Dr. Mark Hansen praised Hall’s “commitment to students through his support of innovation, engagement and opportunity. Dr. Hall’s leadership experience, as well as his ability to develop community partnerships and integrate design thinking, will add great value to the students and staff in Elmbrook.”
For the past seven years, Dr. Hall has served as the Principal of Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha. Prior to that Hall’s experienced ranged from a K-8 Principal to a middle and high school math teacher. Dr. Hall received both his Master’s (2002) and Doctorate (2012) degrees in Educational Leadership from Marian College. Selected from a candidate pool that included leaders from across the field of education, Dr. Hall stated, “I am excited to join Elmbrook Schools and begin the challenging work of starting a new program for high school students across the District.”
