A Little Bit About Mr. Chad Burnheimer, Principal Chad

Welcome to WHSD Middle School (formerly WHSD Intermediate. My name is Chad M. Burnheimer and I will be the principal here. I have had a wonderful career in education over the last 23 years working in Texas, Maryland, West Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. I hold a B.A. in Art from Thiel College, a M.A. in Teaching and Learning with Technology from Ashford University, a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Edinboro University and Superintendent Credentials from Edinboro University. While I have had many travels in my career, I was born and raised a Pennsylvanian and have done my best to return as soon as I could. I am looking forward to a wonderful and successful school year.

This year is one of change and we will work hard to ensure your children the strongest education and prime opportunities when they present themselves. Additionally, parents I ask you to be involved with the school, your child and the PTA. It is essential for a cooperative relationship between us all to prepare our students for life after school.

If you ever have questions, never hesitate to contact the teachers, the school or one of the administrative team. Thank you for taking the time and I hope to see you throughout the year.
