    Welcome to Betty Wheeler Classical Junior Academy, home of the Tigers! I am eagerly anticipating the 2022-2023 school year and I am very excited to serve all of you as your Principal. We are embarking on a historic year and the Betty Wheeler Classical Junior Academy staff is ready to jump in with a positive attitude, growth mindset, and many hopes and dreams for all of our Tigers. As we explore new traditions, systems, and classroom set-ups, we will focus on how much there is to discover in these uncharted territories. We have dedicated teachers, specialists, interventionists, custodians, office staff, and a support staff team that will work our hardest to ensure that we provide the best experience possible.

    My vision for Betty Wheeler Classical Junior Academy is to provide each student with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

    Together we can make a positive difference! A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. I encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership. We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. I encourage you to email me or call to share ideas, concerns or questions. I wish your family and especially your student, great success this school year.
