August 12, 2013

Greetings Tyler Families and School Community,

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! I am extremely excited and honored to have this opportunity to work with such a wonderful community and committed and talented staff. Having served as Assistant Principal this past school year, I had the opportunity to meet many of you and I look forward to serving the entire Tyler community as Interim Principal this year. I will continue to use my teaching and administrative experiences to support our school’s academic agenda and remain committed to the goals and expectations set forth by our school district and our Tyler family.

The potential that we have at Tyler is limitless and as team we will continue to experience the success that has already been established by building stronger relationships with students, parents, staff, and community partners. We will continue to foster a nurturing and safe environment for children, use data to inform and guide our instructional practices, consistently implement strategies and interventions to increase student achievement, and provide enriching academic and social opportunities for all students.

As a husband and father of two young children, I know and understand that the education of our children is not only our responsibility; it is our life’s work. I will continue to provide the leadership required to give our children a strong foundation working together with parents and staff. I extend a personal invitation to you and your family to partner with Tyler Elementary School. I sincerely believe that educating students is a team effort and together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of children. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 202-939-4810. I look forward to a phenomenal school year together and meeting and greeting you all soon.

Best Regards,

Mitchell V. Brunson
Interim Principal
Tyler Elementary School
