Oak Harbor High School Associate Principal Bill Weinsheimer was named the new principal of North Whidbey Middle School. He is replacing Laura Aesoph, who accepted the principal position at Olympic View Elementary School as current principal Martha Adams is retiring.
Weinsheimer taught philosophy and science for 10 years and has been associate principal at OHHS for seven years, four of which he managed the ninth-grade Island program.
Weinsheimer’s focus has been on helping students transition from middle to high school as he spent many years working with ninth-grade students.
“I’m really excited to work with the middle school to prepare for high school,” Weinsheimer said.
In his seven years working for the Oak Harbor School District, Weinsheimer said he has really gotten a sense of what the community wants and expects from its students, as well as the opportunities for serving students here, especially students of military families. Weinsheimer said he is eager to serve these students whose families have made huge sacrifices for the nation.
“It’s a privilege to be able to work hard for these kids and help them,” Weinsheimer said.
Weinsheimer was selected from a pool of 22 applicants for the position. A competitive search is planned to fill the associate principal position at the high school.
