Nicholas Wilson is the Assistant Principal of Instruction at Hardy Williams Academy

“I am in a unique time in my career where I desire to go further and deeper with my impact on students. In order to do that, I’m clear that I need to be sharp in my craft and as equipped as possible to be an effective leader and change agent. Surge provides me the opportunity to develop in those areas in a way that is culturally responsive and led by experienced professionals who look like me and face some of the same challenges I do as a Black educator. I’m excited to have an environment that affirms me, pushes me, and gives me opportunities to try and fail and learn in order to get better.”
