Assistant Principal's Message

smithContinental Family,

Welcome back to school for the 2021-2022 school year. This year will be exciting for many different reasons. I am excited to be joining the Continental family for my first year as the Assistant Principal of Washington Middle School. It is easy to see that Washington is a school filled with wonderful students and staff who take pride in the school. I have experienced nothing short of warm welcomes and helping hands. Since beginning my career, I have most enjoyed working at the middle school level, so I am overjoyed to work with the students of WMS.

I have spent the past eight years serving the EVSC as a teacher, coach, master teacher and community outreach coordinator at Lincoln School. I know that my experiences at my previous school will allow me to support the students and staff in a unique way. I believe that all students have the ability to be successful in school and it is the school staff’s responsibility to find ways to best support the needs of all students.

I am quickly learning that Mrs. Branson and the WMS staff have high expectations for all students. The teachers of Washington display an exceptionally high level of compassion, consistency, social/emotional support and a desire to provide a quality education to each and every student. I look forward to coming alongside these amazing individuals to provide support, guidance and education to the WMS family.

My wife and I live in Newburgh with our four children. I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching my children’s sports, grilling and working outside. I am anticipating the opportunity to meet the families of WMS and learn more about them.

Mr. Smith, Assistant Principal
