Eric Witter - Principal

Hello Don Callejon Community!

My name is Eric Witter, and I am very excited to be the new principal at Don Callejon K-8 school. I have experience as an elementary and middle school administrator, and as a teacher at the middle school and high school school levels. I’m the parent of children that will be in fourth and eighth grade, and my wife is also in education (she is a first grade teacher in the area). I have an education family, where almost all of our relatives work in education roles, so I guess you could say that it is in my genes!

My values as an educational leader are on collaboration, relationships, communication, and instructional practices. I believe we do our best work for children when all of our stakeholder groups are working together. I see one of my most important roles as building relationships with staff, students, and parents. Regular communication is one of the essential routines in the role of principal, and I plan on doing that with multiple methods. Most importantly, I try to spend as much time as possible leading our instructional practices, and I believe that the work we do with students in the classroom makes the biggest difference for student learning.

I’m excited to meet, learning with, and lead the Don Callejon community in 2018/19!

Yours respectfully,

Eric Witter
