I am honored to share that at the conclusion of this year, Dr. Scott Weatherford will take over as the next DVC principal, effective July 1, 2017.
Dr. Weatherford is our government, economics and college writing teacher at DVC, and his experience stretches far beyond his work at DVC. Dr. Weatherford has 18 years of experience as a teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, and principal. He joined the Da Vinci family in 2012 and has taught US Government, Economics, and College Writing as main assignments, in addition to multiple college courses through Antioch University. He is also the founding Director of the Da Vinci Institute, our professional development center for educators interested in learning more about Da Vinci best practices and applying them to their own learning and schools. Dr. Scott has extensive experience leading professional development, hiring and coaching, and working closely with teachers and teacher teams to help them continuously grow their craft and meet the needs of diverse student populations. Prior to joining Da Vinci, Scott served as Principal of Camino Nuevo High School. He holds a B.A., Master’s, and Doctorate of Education all from UCLA.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions. I am looking forward to working with all of you the rest of the year and seeing our first senior class graduate; and I feel incredibly confident about our transition to the 2017-18 school year in a new building, larger freshman class and new leadership.
Thank you all,
