Principal Roland T. Woodson

Dear Westhaven Families,

I am both humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve as Principal of Westhaven. As principal of Westhaven it is my pledge to model, inspire, challenge, support and encourage every member of the Westhaven community, in a manner that will not only positively impact student achievement but add value to the community. Westhaven Elementary School has the unwavering drive to prepare students to be college & career ready, equip them to graduate on time and prepare them to enroll in post-secondary opportunities.

I believe that I must be a visionary and supportive leader. I aspire to be a great role model by fostering an attitude of compassion, unwavering drive, honesty, and transparency. I believe that my leadership abilities will enable Westhaven to improve instruction, thus impact student achievement by creating a culture of access and equity. I believe that education is the catalyst that changes the trajectory of one’s life. I believe that school should be intellectually challenging, motivating, captivating, safe and supportive of both teachers and students regardless of their needs. Finally, I ask that we partner this school year in an effort to achieve our goals. Thanks in advance for working with us in our Relentless Pursuit of Excellence. 

Roland T. Woodson Jr., Principal
Westhaven Elementary School
