Mrs. Wendy Piro

Mrs. Wendy Piro began her career in education 20 years ago as a WMS Raider teaching 6th grade ELA and Social Studies.  She brings with her a wealth of knowledge in curriculum and instruction, as well as, coaching and mentoring beginning teachers.  Mrs. Piro has a Bachelor of Science in Child Development with her K-6 Licensure from Meredith College. She has her Master of Arts in Elementary Education from East Carolina University. Mrs Piro participated in the North Carolina Leadership Academy (NCLA) where she earned her Master of School Administration from North Carolina State University.  Mrs Piro's Vision Statement is as follows: "I believe creating a culture of collaboration and shared responsibility among all is crucial to the overall success of any team. Great leaders don’t command excellence, they build it.  Educational leaders should advocate for students and individuals within the school community who either don’t or can’t have a voice. I believe in the power to transform the lives of students by showing unconditional love to build lasting relationships through compassion and caring.  My mission is to inspire others to assist students who often struggle with academics and behavior find some level of success."
