I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Tim Carter. I feel tremendously blessed to be the Principal at Niagara Wheatfield High School. I am really looking forward to this year and look forward to continuing to develop my relationships with the students, parents and staff members of the high school family.
As I begin my first year as the Principal of Niagara Wheatfield High School, I am completing my 22nd year in education. For four years I was a pre-school and kindergarten teacher in a private agency in the Town of Tonawanda. For 12 years I was a teacher at School #81 in the City of Buffalo were I taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade and 6th grade. For one year I was the Assistant Principal of Buffalo Public School 28 (Triangle Academy), then I was a coordinator of staff development at Erie 1 BOCES. This is my 6th year in Niagara Wheatfield. For two years I was the Assistant Principal at West Street and for the last four years I was the Principal at Colonial Village. Throughout my administrative career I have been an Assistant Principal at a middle School and a high school. I look forward to bringing my wealth of experience to Niagara Wheatfield High School in an effort to support students and teachers in creating a true family atmosphere.
As the Principal of Niagara Wheatfield High School, I believe in educating the whole student. What I mean by this is my commitment to nurturing each individual student’s talents along with focusing on what I call the “4 Pillars” of becoming a successful and productive student. The “4 Pillars” are:
For me, communication is the key to a successful school year. Please feel free to stop by my office or pick up the phone (215-3112) at any time to talk about anything I can help you with.
I am very excited about being a part of the Niagara Wheatfield High School community this year. I am always focused on helping all of our students succeed and meet high academic standards in the classroom.
