Meet the Principal

Erin King

Hello, I’m Erin King and I’ve been Principal of Brookfield Elementary School since 2021. I am honored to lead an incredibly diligent, thoughtful, and caring group of teachers and staff. New students and families will love the personal approach we take to learn about and teach every child to their strengths!

I earned my Bachelors in K-12 Cross Categorical Special Education in 2006 from the University of Wisconsin. I later continued my education to earn my Masters in Educational Leadership and Principal License from Viterbo University in 2013, followed by my Director of Special Education and Pupil Services License from Cardinal Stritch University in 2017.

Prior to Brookfield Elementary, I taught for seven years across Madison, New Berlin, and Waukesha before serving as Associate Principal and Principal of Forest Park Middle School in Franklin for a total of 8 years. 

I absolutely love working with students and staff to ignite a passion for learning! I love positively impacting lives and knowing that each interaction we have with one another can positively impact the trajectory of a life. The Brookfield Elementary community is incredibly supportive, kind, and involved in the well-being of all students, staff, and the overall community. Brookfield Elementary welcomes each student each day and challenges them to learn and grow. Each day our staff is challenged to see the potential in each child, beyond what that child thinks is possible.

In 2021, I was awarded the Herb Kohl Principal Leader of the Year Award. My family and I are a part of the Elmbrook Schools community. My husband Brad along with our two children, Carter and Jayden, live in Brookfield. Our children are involved in Junior Lancer baseball, basketball, and flag football. We enjoy spending time outside and reading!

In addition to our website, we invite you to schedule a tour or contact us for further information about our school. We are proud of Brook El, and would love to show you around!
