St. Francis Episcopal School is pleased to announce Dr. Byron Williams as the newly appointed Head of Middle School starting June 1, 2022.
Dr. Williams brings more than 15 years of teaching and leadership experience at independent and public schools. He has spent the last 11 years at The Kinkaid School where he serves as eighth grade dean, middle school history teacher, and admissions pod leader. Previously, he was with Burbank Middle School where he chaired the social studies department and taught middle school history.
A creative and collaborative leader, Dr. Williams offers a wealth of knowledge in curriculum alignment, new teacher mentorship, professional development, and technology integration. He loves teaching middle school students and believes this time in their lives greatly impacts their social-emotional development.
“When students perform on stage, succeed in the classroom, or get their hearts broken, they feel real happiness, gratitude, and pain. They’re not preparing for real life, they’re living it,” he says.
Dr. Williams holds a bachelor of arts degree in history from Xavier University of Louisiana and a master of divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. A lifelong learner, he earned his doctorate in education with a focus on curriculum and instruction from Texas A&M University. He received The Kinkaid School’s Columbiana Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2016 and was named Burbank Middle School Teacher of the Year in 2008.
We invite you to join us in welcoming Dr. Williams at a special meet and greet on Wednesday, March 23, at 7:45 a.m. in the Hogan Board Room on Piney Point Campus.
