Winters Joint Unified School District Superintendent Diana Jiménez announced the resignation of the Waggoner Elementary school principal on Tuesday, March 16. In a message sent to the Winters JUSD community, she said Jennifer Kloczko, Waggoner Elementary Principal, had made the personal decision to accept a principal position in another district beginning in the fall of the 2021-22 school year. Kloczko has served as the Waggoner administrator since March 2019. She came with 17 years of experience as a primary teacher and six as a site administrator.  Over the past two years, she has accomplished a great deal for Winters youngest students bringing changes at Waggoner to allow staff to really focus on the foundation of literacy skills of TK through second grade and support student achievement. In a previous interview with the Express, Kloczko said her theory in working with youth as an educator is she wants every student to grow from wherever they are. Her goals for the staff include making an effort to learn where students are beginning and providing each student appropriate challenges giving them the opportunity to grow. “Students come with different skill sets and talents. We want every student to grow,” said Kloczko. “There’s no other job that prepares kids for every other job. We’re preparing for their future and making a difference. It’s so exciting to watch them grow and learn. It’s rewarding. It’s a lot of fun.” Jiménez said all who have worked with Kloczko will miss her positive energy and instructional leadership. “She is reliably enthusiastic about teaching and learning, and relentlessly supportive of all students and their families. In addition to championing our students, Mrs. Kloczko is a strong district collaborator and team player. I am personally sad to lose such an amazing colleague, but I am grateful for the time and talent that she has given us over the past two years,” Jiménez said.
