Dear Students and Families:
On behalf of the faculty and staff at Simons Middle School I would like to welcome you to our school and web page. My name is Whitney Wilson and I am excited to begin my first year as Principal at Simons Middle School. I hold a Bachelors degree from Morehead State University in Secondary Education and a Masters Degree from MSU in School Adminstration. I also have a Masters Degree from Western Kentucky University in Library Science. During my educational career, I have served as a middle school Library Media Specialist and as a middle school assistant principal. This past year I had the opporunity to partcipate in the the National Institute for School Leaders (NISL) Executive Development Program and the Next Generation Leadership Academy.
My personal mission is to work with students, staff, and the community to provide students with an educational enviroment that meets the needs of all students and provides our students with the same opporunities as students from around the world. My vision for SMS is for our students to achieve at high levels while providing an education that not only ensures mastery of academic standards, but also prepares our students for the global society in which they will be expected to suceed. Our staff is dedicated to helping all students grown and develop not only as learners, but also as citizens.
Our goal is to challenge your student academically, grow them socially and emotionally, and guide them toward independent thinking and problem solving. Students will be encouraged to display good character and to make good choices that will result in successful outcomes.
I look forward to working with you and your student to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success. You can access my weekly messages to staff, student and families by clicking HERE. Once again, welcome to Simons Middle School.
