Hello Westbrook Families,
My name is Taylor Wrye and I am extremely excited to be joining the Westbrook Middle School community as your new Principal. Westbrook Public Schools has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence and student support. These results are due to the hard work, dedication, and the strong partnerships between students, parents, teachers and community members. I am humbled and most appreciative of the opportunity presented to me to become a member of the Westbrook Middle School family.
My entire career has been at the middle school level and I consider myself to be a true advocate for middle school children. Prior to Westbrook, I was the Principal of Williams Middle School in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, the Assistant Principal of the Dr. Daniel L. Joyce Middle School in Woburn, Massachusetts and a social studies teacher for Wilmington Public Schools in Wilmington, Massachusetts. My classroom teaching and administrative experiences have helped to shape my identity as a school leader.
It is my goal to make the transition process as transparent as possible. I have created an entry plan that outlines the steps I will take to get to know the Westbrook community. The entry plan can be found on the school website in the next few days and it will focus on three essential questions: Where are we as a school? Where do we need and want to go? How will we get there? Your input is vital in helping answer these questions. The Link to the survey is here: https://goo.gl/forms/GSW0sQ0vD5IRDUca2
In the next few weeks, I will be hosting open office hours for the people to stop in and say hello. Please refer to the school website for specific dates and times. My door is always open and I welcome your input. I want to thank Superintendent Ciccone and Interim Principal Weirsman for helping make this a very smooth transition. I look forward to getting to know every family at Westbrook Middle School.
Taylor P. Wrye, CAGS
