Our New Principal
Dear WCHS Community,
The Board is thrilled to welcome Ms. Tanishia Lavette Williams as our new head of school. Ms. Williams comes to us with a passion for building community and a dedication to academic excellence.
Ms. William’s most recent experience was as the Head of Schools for Girls’ Academy of Newark where she lead the efforts to provide educational and social emotional supports in New Jersey’s only public single-sex school for young women. She also has worked as a district level Executive Director for the NYC Department of Education and has been a founding principal of a school in our Nation’s capitol.
In the days ahead you will have the opportunity to get to know Ms. Williams. In the meantime, please join me in welcoming her into our community. She will officially take the baton on August 1, 2016 from Ms. Gaffney, who has graciously agreed to continue through the summer and assist with the transition.
Welcome, Ms. Williams!
Lourdes Rivera Putz, on behalf of the Board of Trustees of WCHS
