Principal's Monthly Message
May is here! As many of you know all of the elementary principals have received a transfer for the coming school year. This brings a decade long end of my assignment working with the students, families and educators at Woodruff Elementary. I want to tell you all that it has been a privilege and an honor to work at your school. As I have talked to those I meet about what I do and where I work I have always been proud to say that I am an educator at Woodruff Elementary and that we ensure that our kids have high expectations, feel our concern and care for them, and that they learn skills that are going to help them be successful throughout their lives. Whenever anyone asks me of my opinion on education I always tell them the things that we do, or are on the road to doing at Woodruff School. Woodruff is the epitome of what an excellent school is.
Since transitioning from a classroom teacher to the school’s principal I have found an even deeper appreciation for the families that we serve here at Woodruff School. As principal I have made it my priority to continue upon the excellent course that was set before me and to take that course and make it better. During my short two years as principal we have been able to have stronger ties between our own school community as I have met with the Spanish speaking families in our school boundaries and in partnership with USU’s Service Center we started teaching English classes to parents each Tuesday and Thursday night at the school so they can become more confident in communicating with their kids and their greater community at large. We have started a robotics program at our school and even had four teams compete in an interstate robotics competition over the past two years. We are now at the end of a process to become one of only six schools in the State of Utah to be designated by the State Office of Education as a STEM School, we will be one of only two of these schools that are public schools and other schools will look to us to lend them ideas and strengthen their own STEM teaching. I am very proud of these accomplishments and the work that our parents, teachers and students have done to get us to this point.
As I leave my assignment at Woodruff the things that I will take with me are the wonderful experiences that I have had with our Woodruff family. I have learned so much from each member of this family and I have enjoyed seeing whole families of students come through our doors from oldest to youngest and share in the traditions, learning and success that comes from being a Woodruff Wildcat. I have become a strong educator because of the associations I have had with the para professionals, teacher specialists, coaches and teachers that I have worked with here. The parents in our community have come together countless times to support our children’s learning through volunteering their time to tutor, coach and add pizazz to our school days. The Woodruff students are the ones I will miss the most. They are always so happy to see me each day and so excited about their own learning. I have seen students that do selfless acts for each other and that believe in themselves and their peers. They are each our reasons for doing what we do and for working as hard as we do together. I will miss each of you and I thank you once again for helping me to become the person that I am today.
All the best,
