Vice Principal, Last Names A-L
January 22, 2019:
It is my great pleasure to announce that Brian Covey, a teacher leader here since 2015, will be joining our administrative team as Interim Vice Principal. He will be moving into room 139 and handling discipline for students whose last names begin with “A” to “L” in addition to other duties as assigned.
Mr. Covey came to us from California where he taught a variety of social studies courses at the secondary level and played a key role expanding access to his school’s Advanced Placement (AP) program. Additionally, Mr. Covey served as department chair, CTE Pathways Academy lead, and led curriculum work at the district level for the two years prior to joining us at Wilson. Brian has also taught undergraduate history courses and a post-graduate teacher preparation course at the university level.
Mr. Covey will continue the work he began this year as a teacher leader on the PPS curriculum development team and remain connected to the Freshman Success Team (FST) as an administrator. Jay Rishel, the English teacher in their 9th-Grade Community team, will step into the teacher leader role created by moving Mr. Covey.
Mr. Covey’s courses will be taught by Kurt Weist, who has graciously substituted in long-term positions at Wilson several times over the last several years. Mr. Weist is excited to spend another semester at Wilson and to join a great 9th-grade team.
