Nancy Zoudeh
WPES Principal

Dear William Penn Community, 

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  My name is Nancy Zoudeh, and I am excited to introduce myself as the new principal of William Penn Elementary School. I am thrilled to work with the faculty, staff, parents, and most importantly the students to uphold the school’s mission, “Together We Learn, Together We Lead.”  

My focus is to provide all students with learning opportunities grounded in research-based practices while creating a school environment that is trauma-informed so that each student can experience a personalized education which empowers them to belong, feel valued and become successful leaders in our community.  My personal and professional experiences have allowed me to appreciate just how intricate and special the elementary years are.  Please know that I pledge to always keep your child’s best interest at heart.  

Our school community will work passionately to foster positive relationships while challenging students socially and academically to maximize their overall learning experience.  It is my belief that fostering strong relationships must be at the heart of our work with students and is integral to the work of educators who serve our children.  I am so thankful to bring my experiences, knowledge, and passion with me to the William Penn School Community. I am excited to begin my work as a Wildcat!  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share. I look forward to meeting with you and your children soon!
