‚ÄčGreetings J.V. Washam Family and visitors. Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!! My name is Jaime Tecza, pronounced "Teska," and I am the proud principal of J.V. Washam Elementary. A little bit about myself, the 22-23 school year will be my 6th year at Washam and 9th as a principal with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. In 2000, I moved from Erie, PA to begin my teaching career at Blythe Elementary. I was a fourth and fifth grade teacher for 7 years before earning a fellowship called the North Carolina Principal Fellowship award. This allowed me to go back to school fulltime to learn how to be a school administrator. During my final year of earning my administrative degree, I worked at Bradley Middle as the 6th grade administrator/Principal Intern from 2007-2008. Upon graduating from UNC Charlotte with my Masters of School Administration, I was hired as the Dean of Students at Davidson IB Middle School and served in that position from 2008-2010. I then moved to Cabarrus County where I worked for four years as both the Assistant Principal and Assistant Principal of Instruction at Boger Elementary and Irvin Elementary, respectively. My last role was at University Park Creative Arts where I served as the proud principal for 3 years. I am lucky husband of Cathy, who is a Talent Development Teacher in CMS, and the proud father of Emmie (13) Nicole (10), Ben (6) and fur baby, Ripley (1). Needless to say, most of my free time is spent with my kids and I wouldn't have it any other way. When I can find the time, I love to golf, hike, and watch any Pittsburgh sports. I look forward to working with you all to continue making J.V. Washam Elementary a top school in North Carolina. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. 

Mr. Jaime Tecza Proud Principal, J.V. Washam
