I am Dr. Kyle Rhoads and this is my eleventh year as the Principal of Windham Primary School. Before coming to Windham, I was a principal for 5 years at Acton Elementary School in Acton, ME and an assistant principal and co-director of early childhood in Auburn, Maine. I am a past Kindergarten teacher and elementary curriculum coordinator. I began my full-time career in education as a teacher assistant at a small school in Sebago.

In my free time, I enjoy boating, listening to music and running. Every once in a while I still road race competitively at local running events. I am an avid sports fan, too! Since I was born outside of Philadelphia, I root for both the Philadelphia teams and the Boston teams!

I am married to my wife and best friend, Carrie. We got engaged at Fenway Park, married at North Windham Union Church and had our reception on Peaks Island. Carrie is a guidance counselor at Poland High School. We have been married for nine years and live in Windham off of Windham Center Road.  We have been blessed with the gift of our daughter, Ava, who was born in February 2013.  She looks like Mom more than Dad, which is just fine!  Ava is part of the WPS family as she goes to kindergarten at our school.

There are several ways to keep involved in WPS life.  You will periodically receive a newsletter from the school that will come home usually on Fridays or can be found on our Eagle News website. The newsletter will be published approximately once a month. Also, these newsletters will be posted on the Primary School website. You can also follow WPS News on Twitter @WPSPride or on Facebook.  I also have a blog about WPS topics that may be of importance to staff and families.  Many parents and guardians volunteer in classrooms, however, there are many opportunities to volunteer as an Academic Coach or a Busy Bee.  Please visit the volunteer website, volunteer coordinator or contact the office for more information on these and other volunteer opportunities!

 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our school. You are always welcome to schedule an appointment to talk with me. I believe we have a wonderful school with a quality staff helping students learn and grow!  We are truly a caring community of learners!

Please feel free to contact me at 892-1840 and krhoads@rsu14.org or the Secretary for the Principal,
