2019-20 Middle School DeansTop of Page

The 2019-2020 Middle School Deans are dedicated to providing support and leadership to all Middle School educators, students, and families. With like-minded aspirations, the Woodside Middle School Deans strive to collaborate with the Woodside Middle School faculty to plan and provide activities and services focused on maintaining a positive learning experience for all students. In addition to these goals, the 2019-2020 Middle School Deans will serve as instructional leaders in the planning and coordinating of various Middle School developments and implementations while establishing and maintaining productive, synergistic relationships with all Middle School school groups. 

While the 2019-2020 Middle School Deans are acting as an administrative team, each member will take on specific, distinct responsibilities.
