Introducing our new Head of Upper School/Assistant Head of School
The Village School is excited to announce that Mrs. Nikki Belmarce-Sweeney will be joining the TVS Community as our new Head of Upper School/Assistant Head of School starting July 1, 2021.
Mrs. Belmarce-Sweeney currently serves as the Director of Innovation and Educational Technology at University School of Milwaukee. With over 25 years of experience in the field of education, she has a breadth of experience that will become a valuable asset in our Upper School division and throughout the entire TVS community.
During her two decade tenure at University School of Milwaukee, Mrs. Belmarce-Sweeney played an integral part in developing several of the school’s emerging programs. She played a key role in the creation of a new innovation facility and academic program with support from an accompanying capital campaign. Her experience also includes facilitation of “Think Tank” meetings with key donors in order to support new strategic initiatives and the achievement of fundraising goals. She has contributed to and facilitated comprehensive professional development conferences and ongoing, embedded professional development opportunities for faculty and staff at University School of Milwaukee.
She holds a B.A. in Education from Cardinal Stritch University, a M.Ed. in Education in Technology from Lesley University, and a M.S. in Educational Leadership from Cardinal Stritch University. She will be relocating to Naples from the greater Milwaukee area with her husband, Joe Sweeney, who is an inspirational speaker, businessman, private equity investor, professional board member, and New York Times Best-Selling author.
“From the moment I walked through the doors at The Village School and saw “Loving and Learning since 1985,” on the wall, I felt the warmth and exuberance of a special place where students come to stretch themselves as lifelong learners and leaders with the drive and capacity to create an infinitely better and more beautiful world,” Mrs. Belmarce-Sweeney said. “I’m grateful and honored to be part of this community and to continue building on the solid foundation already in place.”
