New Principal Letter 

[Spanish below]

Dear Wildcat Nation,

 

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Woodrow Wilson High School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education!  I have been dedicated to the field of education for fourteen years.  I have worked in the elementary and secondary settings.  My most recent administrative experience was at Lipscomb Elementary where I served as a Principal for the past four years.  I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Woodrow Wilson High School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

    Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by WWHS by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  We will focus on supporting our four academies, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement.

   All of us at Woodrow Wilson High School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a great year!  This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.  As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, and nurturing environment.  My is door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. 

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at WWHS meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Sincerely,

Roxanne Cheek
Principal

Estimada Nación Felina,

Es con mucho orgullo y emoción que escribo esta carta de introducción como la nueva directora designada en la escuela preparatoria Woodrow Wilson. ¡Siento un honor de tener la oportunidad de dirigir la rica tradición de educación de esta escuela! Mi dedicación al ámbito educativo comenzó hace 14 años. He trabajado en ambientes primarios y secundarios. Mi experiencia administrativa más reciente fue en la escuela primaria Lipscomb, donde serví como directora durante los últimos cuatro años. Tengo emoción y estoy lista para traer mis habilidades como líder educativo a la preparatoria Woodrow Wilson y trabajar con ustedes como socios en educación para asegurar el éxito de sus hijo/as.

Junto con los maestros y el personal, trabajare arduamente para continuar la legacía de éxito establecida en esta escuela por medio de la fomentación de relaciones con padres, estudiantes y miembros comunitarios. Nos enfocaremos en apoyar nuestras cuatro academias, el uso de resultados académicos para guiar la instrucción, y proveer una implementación consistente del currículo en una manera rigorosa para poder continuar la incrementación de los logros de todos los estudiantes.

¡Todos nosotros en la preparatoria Woodrow Wilson estamos listos y emocionados para comenzar lo que promete ser un gran año escolar! Este año será extraordinario mientras continuemos las experiencias académicas para nuestros estudiantes que sean rigorosas, relevantes y que ayuden a crear relaciones y conexiones al mundo real. Como su Directora, ¡es importante para mí que toda persona que pase por nuestras puertas - estudiantes, maestros y padres – se sientan emocionados de estar aquí! Esta actitud nos permitirá enfrentar los retos de excelencia académica de una manera positiva y crear un ambiente donde se da la bienvenida a la educación. Mi puerta siempre estará abierta y le doy bienvenida a sus sugerencias. Sepan que pueden llamarme o mandarme correo electrónico para dialogar sobre cualquier preocupación que tengan durante el año.

¡Estoy lista para trabajar con ustedes en equipo para ayudar a que cada estudiante en nuestra escuela cumpla sus metas y tenga un año escolar exitoso!

Sinceramente,

Roxanne Cheek
Directora
Escuela Preparatoria Woodrow Wilson
