Assistant Principal's Corner

Welcome BWI Eagles!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year Big Walnut students, families, and friends!
 
It's an honor and a privilege to serve Big Walnut students and families as your Assistant Principal at the intermediate building! This will be my first year serving as Assistant Principal at BWI as I previously served as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at the Middle School. I am truly excited to join in on the innovative and transformative culture that encompasses BWI, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to inspire and guide our students to reach their maximum potential! 
 
I began my journey in education after graduating from Ohio Dominican University with a bachelor's degree as a Mild to Moderate Intervention Specialist. I served in special education  through the ESC of Central Ohio and Buckeye Valley before coming to Big Walnut in 2016, where I taught as a co-teacher in the science department at the middle school. I had the pleasure of coaching for Big Walnut Middle School 8th grade football (2 years), 7th grade baseball (1 year), 7th grade girls basketball (1 year), and JV girls basketball (1 year).
 
Central Ohio has been home to me for 12 years now, and my wife and I welcomed our first child, Gino, into the world last summer! I have found a home at Big Walnut, and I am passionate about guiding students to take ownership of their school. I am confident that the skills and character they will develop during their 5th and 6th grade years at BWI will serve them well as they become successful and productive members of their community!
 
I'm looking forward to a fantastic school year!
 
Respectfully, 
Nick Powell
Assistant Principal
