October GEM Award Winner - Kelley Villa


Kelley Villa, Assistant Principal -  WWIA

Kelley's Statement: “As much as I enjoy working with my Wayne-Westland team members who are also passionate and committed to our students, it is the students themselves who provide joy in my life. There is simply nothing more rewarding or humbling to connect with a student in a way that changes that student's life. I am sure that all educators will say that they began their career because they love children and want to expose them to the joys of learning. After many years serving as an educator and 16 years of being an educational leader, I am happy and proud to say that my students are still the most rewarding part of my job!”

Kente Rosser, Principal Statement:  “Mrs. Villa is a very skilled, experienced, and dedicated leader.  She has an informed and value added perspective that is very beneficial for our school.  She is able to build positive relationships with students, staff, and community members. She is a very strong team player. We are fortunate to have her here at WWIA.”
