I would like a moment of your time to introduce myself. My name is Ken Nelson and I am now the new Principal at Willow High School. I am honored and thrilled that I have been chosen to lead your school and be part of this community. More importantly, I am excited to have the opportunity to serve as a role model/mentor to the students and have a positive impact their lives.
I have spent the past 18 years working in a variety of educational settings gaining teaching and leadership experience in K-12 education. I spent the first part of my career as a high school Social Science teacher at Granada High School in Livermore, CA. I then moved on to begin my administrative career at California High School in San Ramon, CA where I was an Assistant Principal. The past 4 years, I have been the principal at Hidden Hills Elementary School, also in located in San Ramon. I currently live close by in Martinez with my wife, Tamee and my 10 year old identical twin boys, Jake and Luke. I believe my vast educational and life experiences have prepared me to take Willow High School to the next level by bringing a caring and supportive approach to help students become successful in the 21st century world.
I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Willow High School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. Although I only started a few days ago, it is already apparent to me that this is a caring and welcoming environment. I am looking forward to meeting all of the students to find out what motivates them to succeed.
I feel that my responsibility as the Principal is to make sure all students know that we care about them, will challenge them and that they receive a quality education within a safe, respectful environment. I know the staff at Willow High School shares this same passion.
I am a firm believer in the home/school/community connection. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or just to introduce yourself. As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Working together only enhances your child’s educational experiences.
