Wilson Students and Parents,
It is a pleasure and honor to be Principal of Wilson
Elementary School. where all students are the “Roadrunner Scholars.”
Because of this, Wilson Elementary School beams with pride. At Wilson Elementary School, we strive to offer a positive, challenging, and instructional learning experience for ALL children in our community that will touch the hearts and minds of our students in a special way. We believe that every student has the ability to reach great educational heights and that it is our responsibility to create learning opportunities that allow students to be, and act, as scholars. We recognize that this is a task that requires a great deal of teamwork between teachers, students and parents. Since we hold high expectations for our students, we recognize that parental involvement is crucial in the reaching of the goal of academic success.
Wilson, we have a group of highly qualified teachers who work collaboratively
with grade level colleagues in order to create an instructional program that is
filled with enriching experiences. It is these experiences that will work
toward preparing our students for college and career readiness. To be prepared for this task, teachers take
advantage of a variety of training opportunities to continue to grow as
experts. Our goal is to meet the needs
of each student by delivering a balanced instructional program that includes
clear objectives, teacher modeling, guided student practice, and supported
independent application of skills, strategies and concepts.
As you enter our doors, you will see students engaged in whole group instruction, by eagerly sharing ideas and responding to open ended questions using high-level academic language. Further, you will be able to observe students working cooperatively, in small groups, as they work together to solve whatever problem is at hand.
expectations for student achievement as well as igniting the excitement of
learning are at the core of my educational beliefs. I value the importance of mentoring students
to new heights, while maintaining the necessary support systems to ensure that
all students have access to the rigor of the new standards. As a result, our Roadrunner Scholars will become
21st Century learners who are technologically savvy, creative
problem solvers, effective communicators, and productive, flexible leaders who
are ready to thrive in our ever-changing and diverse world.
like Michelangelo, who envisioned beautiful sculptures that he was then able to
create out of unshaped marble block, at Wilson, we recognize and keep in mind
the fantastic “sculptures” that we are privileged to be a part of shaping. Each student is in the process of becoming a
work of art, which will be evident when others see the beauty of each
enthusiastic and educated mind, ready to be important contributors to society,
and in the process of creating their own noteworthy history.
am committed to supporting the students, teachers, and community at Wilson as
we work together to see ALL students achieve to their greatest potential by
working together to provide the best education possible. With great excitement, together with our
wonderful teaching and support staff, I look forward to an outstanding
2015-2016 school year.
