WJ Academic Staff

This is the list of academic staff by department. If you are looking for non-academic staff or an alphabetical list of everyone at WJ click "Staff Directories" on the left side of this page.

A note about contacting WJ personnel: Email is an important tool at WJ and is often more effective for contacting specific individuals than a telephone call. Teachers and many staff members are 10-month employees and do not work during the summer. It is possible that e-mail sent or a phone message left after the last day of school will not be read by the recipient until personnel report back to work in August.
