Sage Canyon School Gains New Principal William Cameron
Welcome to the Coyote Pack!
The Del Mar Union School District family has grown this year with the addition of Sage Canyon School’s new principal William “Billy” Cameron, who officially took on his new role in early August. Billy was selected for the position based on his impressive previous experience as a principal of Brookside Elementary School in the Ross Valley School District of Marin County, CA.
Prior to his three-year experience as principal, Billy was an assistant principal and taught the third and fourth grade in Northern California. “The Brookside community is very similar to Sage in that it has an incredible team of highly collaborative teachers who place great value on educating the whole child,” shared Billy. Initially attending school for business administration, Billy discovered his true passion for working with children on a day-to-day basis inspired him to pursue his Master’s in educational administration. On his love for working in education, Billy shared, “My favorite part of the school day was and still is working with the students in the classroom, playing on the yard, or helping them to solve problems.”
Billy came across the opportunity to interview for Sage Canyon’s open principal position while he was screening teachers at his former school. It just so happened he was planning a road trip to San Diego from Northern California during the same time period as the interview. “I feel very fortunate to have landed at a school and district that is not only highly innovative but backs it up by investing in quality professional development for their teachers and administrators,” shared Billy. “I am looking forward to exploring the San Diego area and settling in and calling this my new home.”
