A Message from the Principal


Our Principal, Mr. Tecza 

Greetings J.V. Washam family and visitors.  My name is Jaime Tecza, pronounced "Teska," and I am honored to lead J.V.Washam in the next chapter of Washam excellence.  A little bit about myself, 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 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 certificate, 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 the proud husband of Cathy, who is a teacher at Odell Primary School, and the proud father of two beautiful girls, Emmie (8) and Nicole (5) and our newest addition to the family, Ben (18 months).  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.
