62 Moving Forward

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.

-- Chinese proverb

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

Community Consolidated School District 62 is a diverse, thriving learning community. Our students are eager to learn as they grow with a staff that supports student advancement. It is a sincere pleasure to introduce myself as your new Superintendent of Schools. I am honored and privileged to be part of this school district and work with a team that educates, supports and challenges children to prepare them for their future.

Dr. Floyd E. Williams

Please allow me to introduce myself. I have been dedicated to education since 1997. During my tenure, I have served as a science teacher, reading teacher and principal at the elementary, middle and high school levels as well as a central office administrator in Wisconsin. In addition, I also served as an adjunct instructor at the university level.

My educational philosophy is based on three main pillars:

  • Student achievement: improving student outcomes
  • Effective and efficient operations: maximizing our investment on facilities, maintaining safe schools, fiscal responsibility, recruiting and developing human capital
  • Student, family and community engagement: consistent communication with students, staff, families and residents

My leadership style is centered around servant leadership which is based on a call to perform service to others. This service is for the betterment of the the staff, children and community.

While my contributions in education have been important to me, family is even more so. I have been married to my amazing wife, Shantee Williams, for 13 years. She is currently an administrator for Milwaukee Public Schools. We are the proud parents of two wonderful children, Olivia (10) and Owen (7).

Dr. Floyd E. Williams

This year, I will spend time with staff, parents and students, listening about the district and learning from all of you. I look forward to making your acquaintance as I transition into this new role. There will be opportunities for us to meet and for me to hear your ideas this fall. Details will be forthcoming.

Families are such a critical part of a school district and I encourage all of you to be involved in your child’s education. It is through being a constant in a child’s life that his or her path will lead to success.

Thank you for entrusting us with your children’s educational journey. We will work together to help your children embrace new challenges and broaden their minds. I am excited to spend my time this year looking, listening and learning from all of you as we move forward, together.

I close with a Chinese proverb, "Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere."

I look forward to seeing you this fall,

Floyd E. Williams, Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
