Dear Wentzville School District Family,


I am so honored and thankful to have been selected by the Board of Education with an unanimous 7-0 vote to serve as your next Superintendent of Schools. Since the announcement on Monday evening, the Wentzville community has given me an extremely warm welcome. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming, humbling, and heartwarming to say the least. This week, I was able to meet some of the team as I stopped by support staff negotiations, participated in the PreK-12 administrators meeting, visited with the central office staff, and sat on an interview panel for a principal vacancy. Every staff member that I have met has been so impressive, kind, and has been a living example of Wentzville’s mission of Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow. I cannot wait to join the team full-time in July so that I can get to know everyone on a more personal level. In the meantime, I plan to begin setting up one-on-one meetings with key leaders in the district and community and start visiting schools, attending events, and participating in as many logistics meetings as possible to build relationships and prepare for next school year. I also plan to listen to input from students, staff, parents, and community members to provide important feedback on the strengths, opportunities for improvement, and critical priorities for the district. I’d like to hear from everyone as we begin to look at strategic planning and school improvement initiatives for the next year.


I want to thank Dr. Cain for his many years of exemplary leadership and look forward to carrying on the example of excellence that he has established within the district, state, and nation. The Board of Education, Dr. Cain, and his team have done an excellent job of managing the extreme population growth. Over the last 9 years, the district has built 6 buildings, as well as added more than 1.4 million square feet of space, 812 staff, and 3,167 students. Two schools were opened during the COVID-19 pandemic, and North Point Middle School will open in the fall. As you can imagine, this kind of massive growth consumes an organization’s time, energy, human capital, and resources … and takes a toll on everyone individually within the district and throughout the community as well during the process. The Board, administration, and all staff should be commended for their visionary and strategic planning, dedication, and hard work during these trying times. This was no easy feat, and I am so grateful that the district is set up for success moving forward. I am inheriting a district with sound finances, amazing staff, great students, and a supportive community. As superintendent, I will build upon this strong foundation and help the community begin to heal post-pandemic by focusing on the following priorities:


  • Unified, transparent, and visible leadership,

  • Strong communication that fosters a sense of community, belonging, and a family-feel throughout the district, and

  • Strategic planning efforts that encompass the voices of all stakeholders and result in increased student achievement for all students.


As we begin our relationship together, I’d like you to know a little about me. My husband, Nathan, and I are long-time residents and employees in St. Charles County. I am vested in our community and serve on many philanthropic boards that serve the children and communities in St. Charles County. My heart lies in education, public service, and enhancing what our community has to offer its residents. I want to help make St. Charles County and the Wentzville School District the best they can be – and that we become one of the most desired places in the state to work, live, and send our children to learn. To that end, I plan on being very involved in civic and community organizations that support the Wentzville School District and invite community members, parents, students, and staff to serve on my Superintendent’s Leadership Advisory Committees so that I always have a pulse on the district’s needs and keep them in the forefront of my mind when making decisions. As an elementary parent of two daughters, I can relate first-hand to the struggles that families have encountered during the pandemic. (My youngest was in kindergarten when the pandemic forced schools to close in March 2020.) Meeting the academic, social and emotional needs of all students will be my top priority.


I can’t wait to begin serving the Wentzville students, families, and community. If you see me out and about in the district or community, please say hello. I look forward to meeting you and beginning my work alongside each of you.


We will chat soon,

Danielle

Dr. Danielle S. Tormala
