Greetings Washington Middle School Students and Families!

My name is Dennis Christensen. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the proud Principal of Washington Middle School beginning the 2016-17 school year.

My professional journey to Washington Middle School started as a Special Education teacher in both the Milwaukee Public Schools, and the School District of Greenfield. My experiences include having taught both self-contained classes, and team-taught regular education content classes. During that time, I served as a department chair and vocational coordinator. For the last five years I served as a building administrator at Washington Park High School, a large urban comprehensive school of approximately 1,600 students. In that role I worked with staff to make progress in closing the achievement gap and increasing freshman credit completion.

On a personal note, my family recently relocated from Southeastern Wisconsin to Green Bay. My wife and I have have two daughters who will be attending the Green Bay Area Public Schools. We are very excited about this opportunity. In addition to the Green Bay community, one of the big draws to Northeast Wisconsin is the immediate access to the great outdoors as we are avid campers, hikers, and bike riders.

Since my official start date of July 1, 2016, I have begun the transition process with the outstanding assistance of the Washington Middle School administrative team, building staff, and district office personnel. As the principal of Washington Middle School, I look to be energetic, engaged, and thoughtful to the mission of the building.  As a building leader, I value the development of strong building level teams, collaboration, and collective problem solving. I am a supporter of building positive school culture through PBIS activities, academically safe and engaging classroom practices, physically safe buildings, and extracurricular options to engage students in school. And yes, I am a patron of the arts!

During the course of the summer, I look to coordinate opportunities to connect with you and your families, and to share the ongoing work at Washington Middle School. This information will be shared via the school website and automated telephone calls. Likewise, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone at 920-448-2264 or email at djchristensen@gbaps.org.

I am truly excited about the opportunity to work with you and your students, and to be a part of what makes Washington Middle School a special place.

Sincerely,
Mr. Christensen
