It is an honor to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal at Carter G. Woodson. My name is Mary Wilson and I am looking forward to an awesome year where we all grow as a community and individuals.
I received my education through Department of Defense Schools as my father was in the military. I graduated high school from Fort Riley, Kansas. I received my undergraduate degree from University of North Florida in Elementary Education. I obtained my Masters in Educational Leadership from Jacksonville University. I am currently attending Saint Leo University where I am in the process of completing my Ed.d.
Serving in the capacity of an educator has been my calling and my passion. I have loved being an educator for 19 years! I began my career as a Teacher at Pine Estates Elementary School. From there I was offered a reading interventionist position at the same school and took the position as I loved to work with students in reading. My heart filled with joy each time I saw a child grow in their academics. I was a reading interventionist for several years before I became the Director of Education for A Life for a Life International a non-profit organization. I transitioned from there and became a curriculum coach at Duval Charter Westside. From there I became a Dean at Andrew Robinson which led me to my position today as assistant principal of Carter G. Woodson.
My interactions with numerous educators and great have helped mold me into the leader that I am today. Great schools are a result of great teachers and I look forward to once again collaborating with the staff of Carter G. Woodson to ensure that all students continue to grow emotionally, socially and academically.
Yours in Education,
