My name is Dr. William White, and I am extremely excited proud to be a member of the Williams Bay staff. Prior to joining the Williams Bay School District, I was the principal/district administrator of the Brighton School District, located in western Kenosha County.
After growing up on a tobacco farm in northern Kentucky, I earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary social studies education from the University of Kentucky. I spent three years in Fresno, California, where I taught seventh grade at Martinez Junior High School and earned a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Fresno Pacific University.
After earning my degree, I moved to Miami, Florida, where I taught seventh grade Civics at Southwood Middle School for a year. I then moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where I taught sixth grade social studies at Timilty Middle School. During my teaching career, I coached wrestling, volleyball, and baseball.
I moved to Wisconsin in 1996 and became assistant principal at Urban Middle School in Sheboygan. After two years, I took the same position at Wisconsin Hills Middle School in the Elmbrook School District. During my six years at WHMS, I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from UW-Milwaukee. I then became principal of Whittier Elementary in the school district of Waukesha where I spent six years.
I am the father of two children: Lexi and Nick who attend school in the Mukwonago School District. In my spare time I like to golf, bike, kayak and doing lots of other activities.
Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” I strongly believe that public schools and educators serve a critical role in the lives of our children and the future of our world. As principal of Williams Bay Middle/High School, I believe it is my role to work closely with our staff, parents, and students to contribute to an incredible learning environment that prepares our students to successfully address any challenge they may encounter in their lives.
