Principal's Message

Dear Westside Parents & Students,

The staff of Westside Elementary School is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and responsive learning environment for all of our children.  We will continue to work diligently to provide rigorous instruction, create student centered classrooms, and maintain high expectations for our students.  It is our responsibility to enhance and strengthen the role of our school as an integral part of the local, as well as, the global community.

As your principal, I will work to embody the essence of a servant leader and make myself available to you as well as the Frayser community.  As the school's instructional leader, I value relationships with staff, students, families, and the community and I'm committed to ensuring academic success for all students.  We will utilize professional learning communities so that teachers can effectively share best practices and know that their opinions are valued.  We will also utilize common assessments to formulate weekly instructional plans.  It is our goal to educate the "whole child" by integrating differentiated instruction and technology.

We are excited about this school year and will work diligently to ensure a quality education is given to all students.  At Westside Elementary we are "dedicated to excellence" in all that we do.

Love Westside, Absolutely!
