Dear WAS Families,
I could not be more proud to be your principal and am looking forward to supporting each and every Woodside student and working with their dedicated families while teaming with the talented teachers and staff who work tirelessly to make Woodside the incredible place that it is.
If you are a new family to our school, it is my pleasure to officially welcome you to Woodside. I know that our established families will reach out to our new families to reassure them that their journey here will be met with success after success for their child. I know that we will have plenty of time to get to know each other as we partner this school year, but I thought that it might be helpful to provide you with a bit of information about me before then. The most important thing you should know about me is that teaching and learning are at the heart of everything that I do. As a teacher in the District, I have learned that there is nothing more rewarding than supporting children as they learn to navigate their world. Teaching children to ask questions, guiding them towards building problem solving skills, and reveling in the moments where they create their own understanding are the most rewarding experiences an educator could imagine. As the former Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the District, I have had the experience of working with our team to ensure that our curriculum supports each of our learners and that high quality instruction is the standard in our classrooms. As the principal of Woodside, I am continually in awe at the level of dedication that our teachers and staff demonstrate each day as they welcome your children into their school family. I look forward to continuing to support this unparalleled talent, your teachers, in the new school year.
I am looking forward to an exciting school year.
