Meet The Principal

Principal at West Street School

 

B.S., Criminal Justice (Biology minor), American International College 

     

M.Ed., Elementary Education, American International College

C.A.G.S., Educational Leadership, UMass Amherst  

 

Mrs. Wilson joined Southbridge Public Schools this summer after spending the last five years working as Principal of Mile Tree School in the  Hampden-Wilbraham Regional School District. Before her work at Mile Tree Mrs. Wilson was a Mathematics Instructional Leadership Specialist in the Springfield Public Schools. She served on Instructional Leadership Teams, Turnaround /School Improvement Teams, and Student Teacher Assistant Teams.

 

Mrs. Wilson was deeply involved in the writing and implementation of turnaround plans at two different level four schools while she was in Springfield. She is skilled at leading professional development sessions as well as coaching staff. Working with her team she was able to help both schools to rise out of level four status and find great success. 

 

She is excited to be a part of the turn around work in Southbridge Public Schools. Mrs. Wilson will work closely with the District administrators and her team at WSS on the district priorities of Literacy and Climate and Culture to ensure all students are engaged in their education and that the community and families are involved. 

 

Mrs. Wilson believes all decisions at West Street School are based on student success and invites you to join her in the exciting work. To contact Ms. Wilson, you can call West Street Elementary School at 508-764-5470 or email her at jwilson1@southbridgepublic.org
