About Bill

Mr. William O. was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware. He is proud to still call Wilmington his home. After graduating from St. Mary Magdalen in Wilmington, Mr. O. entered Concord High School. Mr. O. credits Concord for inspiring him to want to become an educator. At Concord he served as Class President both Junior and Senior years and became active in school and district events.
After graduating from Concord, Mr. O. worked as an intern for Wilmington Mayor James M. Baker where he worked under the direction of current Wilmington City Councilman Samuel Prado in the Office of Constituent Services. Shortly after completing his internship with Mayor Baker's office, Mr. O. worked for the General Wesley Clark for President Committee's Delaware operations. He assisted with New Castle County and Student Affairs operations during the 2004 Delaware Primary. When the campaign season was complete, Mr. O. then worked for six years for Union Park, Inc. where his duties included a multitude of business matters as the Assistant to the Director of Service Operations. Mr. O. left Union Park, Inc. in March 2009 and joined The Devereux Foundation's Kanner Learning Center where he worked as a paraprofessional in the school for students with various degrees of autism as well as students with behavioral/emotional issues. After leaving Devereux in July 2009, he accepted a position to teach social studies for grades 5 through 8 at East Side Charter School in inner-city Wilmington, Delaware. In July 2010, Mr. O. left East Side Charter School to accept a position as a social studies teacher at Glasgow High School where spent two years teaching courses that included Economics, Government, U.S. History, Law, World Religions, Politics, and World Civilizations. In August 2012, Mr. O. accepted a teaching position in his home school district of Brandywine where he teaches 7th grade Social Studies at a local middle school. In addition, Mr. O. has his Delaware School Leader / Principal certificate.
Mr. O. strongly believes in equality and opportunity for all. He is a firm believer in focusing greater attention on closing the opportunity gap and simply not just the achievement gap. He credits much of his success to his mother, who has been a teacher for over 30 years and his father who died in 2008 at age 56 from cancer. He often quotes Maya Angelou by saying "people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel."
