Dr. Lindsay Hollingsworth is the interim director of School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Lindsay is a native of southwest Wisconsin and enjoys the parks, hills, and small towns in the area. Following in her mom’s footsteps as a career educator, Lindsay studied elementary education at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa before working as an elementary teacher in both Arizona and Wisconsin. During her time as a teacher, she gained an appreciation for mentoring student teachers. This led her to pursue a career in higher education starting as an instructor at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa before coming to UW-Platteville as an assistant professor in 2012.
Lindsay earned her EdD in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Language and Literacy from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. She also has a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix. Lindsay is passionate about educational opportunities for students in rural areas and is excited to be a part of the School of Education's new rurally-responsive elementary and middle level educational program, designed to train teachers for rural school placements.
