Meet Mrs. Alicia Burton, Principal Secretary at Woodfield Elementary. Hi! I’m Alicia Burton, secretary for Woodfield Elementary! This is my 5th year working in the Woodfield Office and my 10th year total working in the Waterford Graded School District. I live in Rochester with my husband, 4 kids, and 3 rescue dogs. I love to travel with the beach being my happy place. I enjoy remodeling our home, diy furniture projects, cooking, and watching my kids do their favorite activities.

The Waterford Graded School District would like to welcome Mrs. Lisa Klass. Mrs. Klass is the principal's secretary at Fox River Middle School. Read more about Mrs. Klass below. Although this is my first year as Principal's Secretary, I have been serving Fox River Middle School students (literally) for the past four and a half years as the Lead of the Fox River dining staff. I am very excited to be transitioning to this new position! I have been taken aback by the welcoming reception I have received by both Fox River staff and parents. Our family moved to Waterford nearly six years ago and we absolutely love it here. I am still amazed by the sight of the Sandhill Cranes walking through a farmer's field or the Great Blue Herons flying overhead like Pteranodons. Listening to the frogs croak back and forth is my favorite way to fall asleep. This is truly an amazing area. I have been married for 30 years and have three grown children. The oldest is a new car dealership manager, the middle is learning the ropes of the family business, and the youngest is in her sophomore year of college studying nursing. In my spare time I love to travel. My husband and I have a goal of reaching all 50 states. I love a good road trip. Finding the best roadside oddities is my specialty. Who wouldn't pull off the highway to see the 55-foot tall Jolly Green Giant statue!
The 2021-2022 School Year is almost here! Due to movement in secretarial staff we wanted to introduce you to the secretaries in our schools.

I have lived in Waterford for 25 years with my husband, 2 boys, and our dog Murphy. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, boating, enjoying the outdoors & shopping.
