William Nelson: Uplifting Students to Reach Their Goals
Posted on 10/4/2019 - 2 minute read
Will’s goal is to uplift his students, offering them more opportunities than those he was afforded early in his life. He’s a strong believer that a student’s success reaches far beyond the individual student, but also impacts the students’ family and community. The more success a student has in school, the more likely they’ll find success in their adult lives - hopefully a future with less reliance on government resources. As a teacher, principal, and now a director, Will regularly implements his dissertation research on college and career readiness and uses it as a tool to encourage his students to take risks, uplifting them to reach their goals.
