Dear SBMS Staff, Parents/Guardians, and Students:
It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to the entire Spring Branch Middle Learning
Community. I wanted to let you personally know about my decision to accept a position as an SBISD Community Superintendent. This new role will allow me to continue the type of work we have begun at Spring Branch Middle, have a greater impact on a larger number of students and campus leaders, and grow professionally as an educational leader. This decision is bitter-sweet; I am sad to end my tenure as principal, but excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.
Serving as Principal of Spring Branch Middle has been a great honor, privilege, and defining part of my life. When I was appointed principal in 2011, I worked collaboratively with our school community to develop a vision focused on meeting the needs of Every Child. I am happy to say that our entire faculty and staff is committed to Spring Branch Middle “being a learning community which values differences and encourages high achievement in all of our scholars towards T-2-4 post-secondary success.”
I appreciate the many positive memories I have made and relationships I have developed with our students, parents, and staff members during the past eight years. I will always feel a part of the Spring Branch Middle family.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Muri, our Board of Trustees, our faculty/staff members, and most of all, the SBMS families, for the opportunity to work towards the success of each and #Every Child, a key SBISD core value, on a larger scale at the district level.
Please know the SBISD Office of Administration and School Communities is committed to finding an exceptional leader to become the next principal of Spring Branch Middle School. Community Superintendent Jennifer Parker soon will announce the interim leader. In the coming weeks, Ms. Parker will work with our faculty/staff, Campus Improvement Team and community to build a profile of the next campus leader to guide the search and selection process.
As always, I thank you for your continued support of SBMS and our mission. Go Bears!
With appreciation and gratitude,
Bryan J. Williams, Ed.D.
