Will has enjoyed being a part of the Northfield High School community since its opening in 2015, serving as the Multi-Intensive Special Education Teacher. He supports students’ growth and development in an inclusive setting that will prepare them with the skills and knowledge to be successful, contributing members of their community.

Will obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Art and Education in 1990 from Muskingum University in Ohio. In 1994, he completed his Master of Education degree in Special Education from DePaul University. After teaching in Chicago Public Schools at the secondary level, Will and his wife, Kelley, moved to beautiful Colorado. Working at the primary and secondary level in Littleton Public Schools for four years Will returned to the urban setting he previously enjoyed and began his career with Denver Public Schools in 1999. Over the course of the next eleven years, he invested himself fully in the Dora Moore K-8 community in the Capitol Hill neighborhood as a special educator, experiencing generations of students. During this time, Will acquired his Principal Licensure from the University of Phoenix in 2005 and later continued at Dora Moore as the Assistant Principal for four more years. Calling Stapleton home with his wife and two daughters, Kaitlin (NHS Class of 2019) and Maggie (NHS Class of 2022), Will enjoyed working in his neighborhood as the Assistant Principal of Westerly Creek Elementary in 2013 before joining Northfield.

During his free time, you will find Will enjoying all the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer, such as fly-fishing, camping, and snowboarding with his family.
