New Principal Announced: Craig O. Jackson
On June 26, 2017, the Board of Education for Montgomery County Public Schools appointed Mr. Craig O. Jackson, currently the principal intern at Cannon Road Elementary School, as the principal of Woodlin Elementary School, effective July 1, 2017. In a letter to the Woodlin Elementary School staff, parents/guardians and students, Mr. Eric A. Wilson, Director of School Support and Improvement said that Jackson has 20 years of experience, including as assistant principal at Dr. Sally K. Ride Elementary School, assistant school administrator at Sligo Middle School, technology teacher at John J. Kennedy High School, and a health and physical education teacher for grades K-8 in the District of Columbia Public Schools system. "The interview panel was especially impressed with Mr. Jackson's ability to build relationships and collaborate with all key stakeholders," Wilson said.
In a letter to the Woodlin community dated June 27, 2017, Jackson spoke of his school teaching and administrative experiences and said, "There is no greater experience than when I was a classroom teacher." He also spoke of his personal experience as a husband and father of three children. Jackon's wife, Renee, is a special education teacher at John F. Kennedy High School. Jackson said, "As I serve at Woodlin, I intend to honor various perspectives, form relationships built on trust, and inspire a culture of hope."
Wilson detailed more of Jackson's attributes and vision: "Mr. Jackson spoke passionately about the positive effects on children when they attend schools where parents/guardians and community members are actively engaged... Mr. Jackson demonstrated high expectations for students, advocating for students with special needs, and the skills needed by teachers to meet those needs. Mr. Jackson described his vision for a high-functioning school, including the need for a strong instructional program, a school culture of respect, and an involved community."
"I believe that every parent loves their child just as much as I love my three children. Perhaps some families are able to be very involved in their child's education, while others may not have that opportunity, but I believe it is my responsibility to ensure every child at Woodlin is cared for in a way I expect for my own children," Jackson said.
