Principal's Message

    Mr. Tavures Williams, Principal

    Dear Blanche Ely High School Community

    It brings me great pleasure to introduce myself to you as the new principal of Blanche Ely High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to support the students and families. A school, where I once walked the same hallways as a student.

    I have had the opportunity to work with students ranging in a variety of roles. I have been a Mathematics teacher and Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, Intern Principal and have supported the district in some ad-hoc roles.  Most recently, I have served as one of the Assistant Principals at Crystal Lake Middle School here in the Blanche Ely Zone.  I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Blanche Ely and to work with you as a partner in education for all children’s success, one that values high standards by providing rich learning experiences for all students.

    I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Blanche Ely this year and in the years to come.   Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students.  Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students and their ultimate experience, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to meeting you soon!
