We would like to introduce Amy Beaman, Moraine Park Technical College Economic and Workforce Development department’s newest full-time instructor. Beaman comes to Moraine Park with 20 years of experience in a variety of Human Resources and Organizational Development Leadership roles in both the private and public sectors including manufacturing, healthcare, service sector, and education. She hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh and a Master of Science Degree in Management and Organizational Development from Silver Lake College.
As an instructor, Beaman enjoy providing customized training and solutions to area businesses in leadership, communication, teambuilding, human resources and customer service. Beaman states, “it is gratifying being part of a team that focuses on collaborating and building partnerships with the community and area businesses to bring economic growth, success, and learning excellence to our district.”
As Beaman put it, “I know that teaching is not a ‘one size fits all’, and that each individual learner comes to the classroom with a unique combination of work experiences, educational background, and career aspirations. I am passionate about meeting each student where they are at in their professional journey and take great pride in helping people grow and develop their communication and leadership skills and potential. By bringing real-life business examples and fruitful discussions to the classroom, each learner is able to walk away with something they can apply when they return to the work environment.”
When she’s not in the classroom, she enjoy spending time with her husband and two sons who are both in middle school. They enjoy watching the boys play soccer and baseball, going up north, boating, and crossing off places to travel on their bucket list.

It’s pretty rare that you get everything you ask for, but that’s exactly what’s happening to Moraine Park when it comes to Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) grants. Every year WTCS makes funds available to the 16 technical college districts (and others) in Wisconsin, but recently more and more of these grants have been competitive.
Most of the time, most colleges have to settle for only a portion of what they are hoping for.
Did you know that fewer than 39% of teens have ever set foot inside a manufacturing company? If so, how can they be expected to know about the incredible career opportunities offered in manufacturing?
To have the opportunity to see a manufacturing site and get some hands on experience with skills needed in manufacturing join us at Moraine Park Technical College’s “Toolin’ It” Summer Camp June 12-16, 2017, from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily at the West Bend Campus.
Welding is fun for Alex Rocha, so fun, in fact, that when the end of class is called, Rocha, a Welding Boot Camp student, wants more. “When I’m done with class, I want to say, ‘Wait! I’m done already?’” and amazingly, that love of welding is only one part of what motivates him to succeed in the boot camps.
Rocha’s young daughter motivates him. The opportunity to meet new people that can teach him new skills and share life experiences motivates him. And most of all, his past motivates him: This includes a two-year incarceration that led him to our boot camps.
“I don’t mind talking about it because it’s the past. I’m here now and my future has endless possibilities because I’m here right now. That’s my motivation.”
It was quiet around Techniques Salon and Spa this week because of spring break, but that didn’t keep the students from learning. Both classes of students along with one of their instructors, Ms. Eileen, attended the 2017 America’s Beauty Show in Chicago. “Highlights” of their adventures were:
