Mr. Tom Davidson

Welcome to Washington Middle School, as your principal, it is important that everyone understand that we strive to be the best in everything we do while as Washington. We challenge our students to think, dialogue and work to the best of their abilities.

I started my education career in 2008 in the West Aurora School District as a Special Education Teacher. After teaching, I took the position of Dean of Students at West Aurora High School. My next position was that of the Assistant Principal of Operations and then Assistant Principal of Teaching & Learning both at Herget Middle School. All this experience has brought me to my current position as Principal of Washington Middle School.

I am a proud father of twin boys Mason and Carter, who will one day work their way through School District 129 as students. I have been married since 2013 to my wife who currently works at West Aurora High School.

I am honored and excited to be the Assistant Principal of Teaching and Learning at Washington Middle School! I’ve proudly spent my whole professional career in School District 129. I started as math teacher at West Aurora High School along side of the math department chair. I moved into the role of Grades 6-12 Math Curriculum Coordinator to work with all middle and high school math teachers.

I hold a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics from Western Illinois University, and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership from American College of Education. I believe in lifelong learning and continuing education.

I believe that all students should be challenged to grow in their education. I look forward to welcoming your students as a General and am excited for the new challenges we will provide to your students! Go Generals!
