Welcome parents, guardians, and stakeholders,
My name is Leon Groce and I am the proud principal of the Audubon Technology and Communications Campus. I am humbled to have been chosen as the instructional leader of this prospering campus. Milwaukee Public Schools has been my home for over 35 years completing each grade level until my graduation from Riverside University High School. I am a living testimony that MPS is capable of preparing our young scholars for great success and now it’s my duty to return the favor, giving back to the learning institution that enriched my life. I have served at all grade levels and positions including an educational assistant, classroom instructor, assistant principal, and now a proud principal.
As the leader of Audubon I will continue to promote successful outcomes such as academic achievement of the young scholars, professional development of the highly qualified educators servicing students, and community partnerships that embrace the diverse cultures that make up the fabric of our families. The goal of Audubon is to prepare all students with college and career readiness skills to ensure success beyond high school. While providing this instructional framework, the students will engage in positive character building that promotes healthy professional as well as social relationships.
Being the instructional leader requires having an open mind, valuing the input of others, and finding a way to bring all stakeholders together in order to provide a rich learning experience that has relevance in our students’ lives, provides accountability to build leadership capacity, and ongoing assessments to measure overall growth. The use of technology at Audubon will allow students to stay current and connected with a society that is forever evolving. Young scholars at ATCC are the future leaders and each day they are expected to meet grade level expectations based on Common Core State Standards, master effective practices that promote prosperity, and produce evidence that defines their commitment to becoming life- long learners.
Again, it is with a humbled spirit that I say thank you for allowing me a moment of time in your child’s life to create lasting impressions. There will be many positive student outcomes at Audubon this school year and I am excited to hear your child’s story.
