Welcome from Principal, Mark Gorman
Wickenburg Students, Staff, Parents, and Community,
It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to introduce myself as the incoming principal of Wickenburg High School. It is truly an honor to become a part of the Wickenburg community, which has already given me such a warm welcome! I can already tell that it is a unique and special place that I am incredibly excited to become a part of.
I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to the 2019-20 school year. This summer, I plan to spend much of my time working with Dr. Carlson, as well as the staff within the Wickenburg School District to ensure a smooth transition. I will get to know both our school and community, looking to familiarize myself with both. In addition, I look forward to meeting with parents and community members as we look to build the necessary partnerships to provide all students with opportunities to be successful well beyond high school. I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when the school and the families work together for the best interests of our students. It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful community and I am eagerly looking forward to working with all our students, staff, parents, and community throughout the year.
On a personal level, I come from a family of educators. I am married to my wife Holly, who has worked as an educator for over 20 years. Together we have raised three daughters, the oldest of which is also serving as a teacher. In addition, I grew up with both parents working as educators in Miami, Arizona. I myself come to you with 26 years of experience as an educator, beginning my career as both a math and science teacher, then moving into administration. Most recently, I spent the past six years serving as anAssistant Principal within the Deer Valley School District.
Again, I am honored to be given this opportunity and look forward to engaging myself completely by listening, learning, and leading in both our school and in community. I have an open door policy and I look forward to meeting all of you as we start this new and exciting school year together. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share. I can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at 928-684-6600.
