Things have come full circle for Winton Woods Primary South’s (WWPS) new interim principal Michele Plummer. In 2014, she began her Warrior career at WWPS as a second-grade teacher. “Winton Woods City Schools was doing big things,” said Plummer as she reminisced on her start at the school she now leads. “They were looking for teachers who were really committed and ready to do the work. I connected with this belief system and was inspired so I interviewed at WWPS and got the job.” In 2018, she left the district for an assistant principal position. She was excited one year later when the same opportunity came to fruition at a place she had learned to call home. Not to mention, where she loved working and teaching. “I wanted nothing more than to come back to an innovative and forward thinking district where I spent so much time educating students.”
Now, a mother of two boys, with one enrolled at Winton Woods, she could not see herself working anywhere else. “My team is amazing, and I can not imagine being with a different group of educators other than the ones I have now.” Even amidst a unique time, her aim is to continue to provide a rich, engaging learning experience for her wee warriors and have a great academic year. “With the new world of technology, our students are doing amazing things and becoming familiar with technology much earlier,” said Plummer. “We are going to see some serious growth in project-based learning now that our wee warriors are learning to share their screens, and toggle between two screens. Virtual learning has given them a new level of responsibility they have never had before. We can look forward to great things in the years to come.”
