Clint Calzini Ph.D. ’11 is settling in nicely as Westlake Academy’s new secondary principal. Westlake is a school located in Westlake, Texas near Dallas and Fort Worth. The International Baccalaureate program there is a natural fit for Clint having grown up in a family of teachers living abroad.
Clint is a 2011 Ph.D. graduate in the Educational Policy, Planning and Leadership Program at William and Mary. Clint received his B.S. in Secondary Education-Biology and Psychology from The University of Vermont and his Master's in School Leadership from Harvard University.
He is the 2009 recipient of the The Harry Robert Elmore Memorial Scholarship, an award established by Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Rice and Mrs. Jo Vansant in memory of Mrs. Rice's and Mrs. Vansant's father. Clint truly demonstrated educational leadership in numerous schools around the world including American-International Schools in Brazil, Russia, Serbia, and Scotland. Dr. Thomas Ward, Associate Dean, said, "Clint's curiosity, initiative, and drive have impressed faculty from the start. He became an active and engaged member of the academic community at William and Mary, bringing forward interesting ideas and thoughtful contribution."
Clint's wife is now serving as a teacher at Westlake Academy and his three children attend the academy.
