Welcome to the Wamsutta Middle School Website
I am pleased and proud to have been named Interim Principal for the remainder of this school year. I look forward to working closely with the faculty, staff, students and parents of Wamsutta.
I come to Wamsutta after having taught both middle and high school age students in Boston, having taught and been an administrator at Attleboro High School for 30 years, and having served as principal of Wakefield Memorial High School, Wakefield, MA. Most recently, I was in the employ of the Providence, R.I. School Department and the New York City Leadership Academy as a leadership consultant. Additionally, I am an adjunct instructor of graduate education leadership courses for the University of Rhode Island.
Wamsutta provides every student with the opportunity to learn and grow in a respectful, positive and educationally challenging learning environment.
I welcome you to become active in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) in support of the many and varied activities that make Wamsutta a warm and spirited school. Also, look to ASPEN and our Facebook page to keep abreast of upcoming events.
