Mr. Shane Gayle

Shane GayleWelcome to Pleasant Prairie Elementary School!

I hope your experiences at Pleasant Prairie reflect my true passion to create an environment where you are welcome and an active participant in your student’s learning and life.  I hold myself to a high personal standard and believe leadership is driven by integrity, communication, sincerity and a focus on the child.  I have experience being a high school teacher, an Assistant Principal at the middle school level and have been the Principal here at PP for 11 years.

I have 3 blessed children and a beautiful wife and love to spend time with family, travel, learn about history, and am a huge football fan!

It is my goal that we build a school where it is

  • An educational experience where you can form great learning memories.
  • A school that children are loved, feel important, and feel smart.
  • A school that serves its community and engages parents in a meaningful and rewarding way.
  • An environment that has the fingerprints of kids all over it…showing off what they know, learn, and create.
  • A facility that takes pride in being clean, inviting, and safe.
  • A learning location that promotes technology and prepares student and faculty to the tools at their disposal to enhance teaching and learning.
  • Finally, a culture and atmosphere centered on respect, collaboration, and shared investment in children.

I am a proud graduate of Marquette University and also received both my Master’s Degree and Administrative license from Cardinal Stritch University.

I listen. I am visible. I am approachable. I care!

With Great Expectations,

Shane Gayle
