Dear Members of the Conway Community,
My name is Tim Dickinson and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Conway School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education.
I come to Conway with a variety of experiences and perspectives. I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Western Washington University and a master’s in educational leadership from Western Governors University. I spent eight years as a classroom teacher in the Longview and Ridgefield School Districts teaching second through fifth grade. The last two years I served the Longview School District as a Climate, Culture, and Behavior Specialist.
As a leader, I am committed to lifelong learning. I believe a great leader creates a school environment where everyone is knocking down the doors to get in every day. The staff, students, and families are dedicated to giving students the education that they deserve. Through thoughtful collaboration teams work together to set goals, monitor progress, and reflect on their impact. I believe schools can overcome past obstacles through innovation and involvement from all stakeholders. Students, families, and staff feel safe, valued, and heard. I believe in making a difference in the lives of students every day.
Away from school, I spend my time with family. My wife, Alison, is a high school math teacher. We have two children—Joel is 8 and Bridget is 6. We enjoy being outdoors and working on house projects.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to bring what I have experienced and learned with me to the amazing community of Conway. I look forward to getting to know you and your children. I will be holding a visitation days on August 6th-9th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. please stop by and say hello.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Principal, Conway School
