WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear St. Agnes School Staff, Students, Parents, Community Members, Alumni, Supporters, Friends, and Stakeholders:
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of St. Agnes School. I am truly blessed and humbled to have the opportunity to lead a school that is inspiring students to flourish in the Catholic traditions of compassion, service, and leadership while fostering academic success. It’s important to me to convey a message of pride in our Catholic identity, and that includes rooting instruction in the Catholic intellectual tradition.
I have dedicated myself to the field of education for over fifteen years. In that time, I have worked with a variety of students, staff and families from various backgrounds ranging in age Pre-K through 12th grade. I have also had the opportunity to teach courses in science, math, and leadership education at the college and university level. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Elon University, a Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Laboratory Science from Winston-Salem State University, a Master’s Degree in Science Education from University of Bridgeport, and a Doctoral Degree in Educational Leadership from Morgan State University and obtained Administration I and II certifications. For the past ten years I have worked in Baltimore, MD in education as a teacher, as well as administrator, helping to bridge academic gaps and foster positive relationships among all educational stakeholders.
My leadership style is one that values the contributions of its members, encourages shared responsibilities and prioritizes service to others. I believe in the role of servant leadership, and strive to put the needs of my students, families, teachers and Church community above my own.
It is important to me that I help provide an environment that is conducive to spiritual growth, especially in adverse times such as these. I want to make people feel comfortable about matters of faith and incorporate and engage in healthy dialogue.
My commitment to you is to prioritize all members of St. Agnes community, to walk in faith daily, to honor your traditions and to continue the path of greatness that has been paved through the unwavering commitment and dedication of our school, and parish community. I look forward to working with you as a team in helping to form students at St. Agnes School of “Virtue in Heart, Soul
Yours in Christ,
Dr. Rahshida Wilson
