The Port Washington-Saukville School Board last week approved the retirements of seven longtime employees who have more than 180 years of combined experience in the district. 

Retiring at the end of the school year are:

• Deb Anderson, a second-grade teacher at Dunwiddie Elementary School whose 41-year career includes 33 years in the district.

• Libby Allen, a sixth-grade teacher at Thomas Jefferson Middle School who has taught in the district for 19 years. Allen is the founder of the school’s forensics program and has served as its director for 17 years.

Although Allen is one year short of the experience needed to retire, the board approved her request because of her health issues. Her retirement benefits will be prorated.

• Nancy Taft, a sixth-grade teacher at the middle school who has taught in the district for nearly 30 years.

• Jane Dean, a physical therapist who has worked in the district for 25 years.

• Peggy Murphy, an occupational therapist who has worked in the district for 26 years.

• Mary Pokrop, an administrative assistant at Port Washington High School who has worked in the district for 20 years.

• Dan Scheftgen, head custodian at the middle school who has worked for the district for 32 years.

Earlier this school year, the board approved the retirement of the district’s longtime school nurse, Kymber McCutcheon. She has been replaced by Abigail Kirchen.
