Dr. Sheri Allen Joins the Team!

TeamWorks International (TWI) is pleased to welcome Dr. Sheri Allen, retired Superintendent of Mankato Area Schools, to our team as an Associate Consultant. Dr. Allen retired from Mankato Area Schools in summer of 2019 after serving in the position for 10 years. She has been with TWI since January of this year.

“I considered different opportunities during my transition,” Dr. Allen said of joining TWI. “I value partnership, purposeful leadership and building capacity across school district systems for all, while utilizing an equity lens. As someone who understands the importance of the alignment of purpose, strengths and beliefs, I knew that joining the TWI team was the right choice for me.”

Prior to becoming Superintendent in Mankato, Dr. Allen served as Executive Director of Elementary and Secondary Education for the Rochester Area Public Schools, Principal at Owatonna Senior High School, and Principal at Washington Elementary School in Owatonna and Neveln Elementary School in Austin, Minnesota. She began her education career as an elementary and middle school teacher as well as a coach with the Austin Public Schools before moving into administration.

Dr. Allen has also served as a Quality Baldridge Evaluator and on numerous professional and community boards. She has been recognized by several educational and community organizations for her work, leadership and service.

“It’s important for me to give back to education through this important strategic work with school districts so they are successful, which will have a direct impact on the success of their school community,” Dr. Allen said. “I look forward to learning from the TWI team as well as sharing my learning and experiences, particularly now when school districts need experienced help the most from people who have been in their shoes.”

Dr. Allen joins TeamWorks International’s current team of Dennis Cheesebrow, Dr. Ray Queener, Christine Wroblewski, Dan Hoverman, Rich Swanson, Matt Pohl and Connie Buberl. “Bringing on Sheri is part of the continuing changes we have been making at TeamWorks over the last few months,” said Dennis Cheesebrow, founder and president of TeamWorks. “We have been expanding and adapting our programming and services to better support our clients and adding experienced members to our well-respected team.”

We will continue to strategically respond to the needs of our clients while remaining committed to our partnership-based approach to leading and managing. For more information about TeamWorks International, call us at (651) 429-7340, or visit our website at teamworksintl.net.
