Dr. Susan Crim-McClendon
The focus at Woodson is excellence, academic success and the well-being of every student. My father, Dr. Alonzo A. Crim,believed that “to empower the children least-served in urban schools we must empower the teachers”. To ensure student success the teachers will be empowered and supported as they plan and deliver compelling lessons, provide critical feedback and support students as they reach high academic levels.
The mighty Masai warriors greet each other by asking “How are the children?". The traditional response is “All the children are well.” At Woodson, we continuously ask ourselves “How are the children?” Collectively, we truthfully respond “All the children are well.” Thank you in advance for keeping the focus on the children. They deserve excellence.
