Vice-Principal - John Way

Mr. John Way

Becoming Vice Principal at TJMS is a great honor for me. I look forward to working with our students and staff. My career has been great because of the people that work so hard to help our students succeed. I look forward for the next part of my career to be even more successful and rewarding.

The middle school years can be a very difficult time for all our students. This is why I take pride in making TJMS a comfortable and safe place for everyone. This is why I believe that the most important aspect of helping students achieve is the communication between the school and home. The students need the support of their teachers and families to become a successful person. This will be a great challenge, but with the proper guidance and determination I know this will happen for our children.

In closing, believe in yourself and your capabilities, and you can be a success at TJMS and the future. I say good luck to all our students and families during their days at TJMS.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there” - Teddy Roosevelt.
