Vice Principal - Kirk Stinson

  • Welcome to William R. Buckley Elementary School.  The home of the Bengals! 

    I have spent my life connecting with students in California both in and out of the classroom. After years working with children through non-profit organizations, I felt compelled to enter the classroom. Working with fifth and sixth grade students at JMA and SCCA, I prided myself on both capturing kids’ hearts and calling them to higher educational standards. As a teacher on special assignment, I worked with students and teachers to implement technology in order to achieve academic goals. I now have the honor of serving William R. Buckley as vice principal.

    I believes in the value and potential of each child. My goal is to create an environment that nurtures ever student and meets his or her need. I am continually inspired by the myriad of educators who choose to believe the best in students and actively build relationships with them. I appreciate parents who work with the school to create the best opportunities for their child. I value hard work and innovative thinking. Students learning brings a smile to my face.

    I am married to the love of my life, Dana Stinson, who is also an educator in the Central Valley. We have three children, Zachary, Micah, and Averie. We love to spend time together riding bikes, watching movies, or just talking and laughing.
