    Jerry Michel  
    Willard has long been identified as a great place for kids to learn. Our well-rounded curriculum and nurturing environment help students learn the “Willard Way” by being responsible, respectful, and caring.
    Including my last nine years at Willard, I have been involved in literacy development and public education for over 25 years. Together with our faculty and families, I work on building collaborative relationships that help our students grow academically and socially, setting the foundation for becoming life-long learners.
