Jim Poltrock’s philosophy of teaching is based on a belief that learning should be student focused.  Now that the majority of his teaching is in a cyber classroom he believes that his primary role has shifted from being a provider of information to a cyber classroom facilitator. 

Poltrock earned an A.A.S. in Fire Protection Technology from Madison Area Technical College, a BA and MA in Public Service from Marquette University and a professional graduate certificate in Public Safety and Security from Northwestern University.   His graduate studies and research at Marquette were focused in the areas health care administration, service quality improvement and dispute resolution.  He earned a certificate in Public Administration from UW-Milwaukee. Poltrock has been employed at the Kenosha Fire Department for 20 years and has served as a firefighter/paramedic, apparatus operator, lieutenant and Assistant Division Chief.  He currently serves as the Division Chief of Emergency Medical Services.
