I have submitted my notice of my retirement to the Governing Board tentative date of June 30, 2021. It has been a privilege serving as Superintendent of the Wilson Elementary School District for 18 years.
It is my hope that I leave the District in a better position than when I started as Superintendent. In cooperation and teamwork with the Board, staff and community, the following have occurred during my tenure:
Expanded programs for all students.
New gymnasium for K-3 students.
We demolished the trailers once used by the Community Center and constructed a new Community Center.
Remodeled all classrooms along with new furniture.
Constructed a state-of-the-art library for Wilson students and community members.
Increased communication with community, staff, and administration.
Created a STEM lab for K-3 students.
Opened facilities to the community including the playground, library, and gymnasium for after hour use.
Partnered with Phoenix Union High School District to create Phoenix Union/Wilson College Prep to provide additional opportunities for Wilson students.
Upgraded from one-to-one PC’s to one-to-one laptops.
Finally, we continue to send Wilson students to college.
I share this only because it is a demonstration of what is possible when everyone works as a team. It has been a pleasure working for the Wilson Community that has supported the district throughout the years. No matter, whether in a recession or pandemic the community has supported all Wilson Overrides and Bonds in elections throughout the years.
I know that with dedicated Wilson teachers and staff, Wilson students will continue to grow and expand their horizons.
Again, thank you for the privilege of serving the district and community.
