  • Winchester, VA-WV (1888PressRelease) May 22, 2014 - Donald R. Williams earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and a Performance Certificate from Shenandoah Conservatory of Music, followed by a Master's Degree in Music Education from James Madison University, and completed a certification program in advanced studies in education administration from Virginia Tech. Working in the field of education since 1980, Mr. Williams first began his career as the band director at Frederick County Middle School in Winchester, Virginia. By 1994 he became a school administrator at Auburn Middle and High School in Riner, Virginia, then moved on to become assistant principal in 1996 and principal in 1998 of Senseny Road Elementary in Winchester, Virginia. In 2000, he became principal of Robert E. Aylor Middle School in Stephens City, Virginia.

    Retiring from the public school system in 2010, Mr. Williams took on the position as assistant dean at Randolph-Macon Academy. In this position for the past four years, he oversees staff development, standardized assessments and evaluations, teacher evaluation, master schedule development for both students and faculty, new teacher mentoring and student mentoring, and the freshman transition team. He also serves as a member on the Academy's safety committee and student retention committee, as technology committee chairman, as advanced placement testing coordinator, and as academic liaison between the Academy and Shenandoah University.

    "I have always wanted to be a teacher and I had the unique opportunity to see how educators impacted the life of other students. I started out with the intention of always being a band director, but I also had a knack for understanding what makes for good instruction and moved to the administrative field to be a teacher of teachers," Mr. Williams said, noting that both of his degrees have helped him reach this goal.

    In August 2014, Mr. Williams will be taking on a new role as director of operations of the Academy and he is looking forward to learning how to use his professional skills to improve the support staff at the Academy. Many times, he said, support services are the first to make an impression on visitors, and he wants the support services team to provide that "wow factor" when students, families, and alumni first step on the campus to begin their visit.

    Mr. Williams is a member of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development, Woodside Estates Homeowners Association, and Fellowship Bible Church. He holds numerous awards in his field, including three state co-championship marching bands, has been recognized for winning instrumental competitions for over 13 years from Florida to Connecticut as a music teacher, and has been named Outstanding Teacher by the Virginia Governor's School for the Arts.
