Principal Tod Wood

Meet Principal Tod Wood!

Hi, Newcastle families! One of the best things about being a principal is the opportunity to make a difference for an entire building -- there is nothing else like being able to support an entire group of adults focused on helping kids! A few fun facts about me: My favorite children’s book is “The Wizard of Oz.” I enjoy Alternative and Americana music. If I could only eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be a really good bacon cheeseburger. On my travel bucket list: A visit to each of the 50 United States. I once wrote music and played guitar for a band called “When Worlds Collide.” (Don’t bother Googling it – we didn’t exactly hit the big-time!)
