Principal’s Message

July 5, 2019


Dear Eli Whitney Families,


My name is TaLoria M. Wilson and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Eli Whitney Elementary School! I am honored to have been selected to join the Enfield Public School District, which is known to make a difference in every child, every day.  Over the past 19 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.

Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the partnership we will build together. As the old African Proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at Eli Whitney. Furthermore, I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day.

My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they may learn as much as they can. This has been my philosophy since I began my career teaching with the Bristol Public School system. I worked in Bristol Public Schools, for ten years, where I taught fifth grade, sixth grade English/Language Arts and third grade Title 1 summer school. I also facilitated professional development and learning for staff as well presented for parent workshops. I then moved to Hartford Public Schools, where I was a Dean of Students, Assistant Principal and Acting Principal. Some of my many responsibilities included being an instructional leader, spearheading school climate and safety, facilitating the SRBI/RTI process, as well as  being the administrative lead for PBIS and Restorative Approaches and Practices respectively.  My greatest achievement however, comes not professionally, but personally, as I am the mother of a three year old son named, Mark-Anthony III and am happily married to Mark-Anthony Jr.  People often say I treat all children in my school as if they were my own. Therefore, please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all your children have the best possible experiences while at Eli Whitney.

Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to this wonderful community. I look forward to getting to know you and your children. I will be working most days this summer to ensure for a smooth transition and opening in late August. Please stop by to say hello whenever you are in the area.  I look forward to meeting you soon.



TaLoria M. Wilson
