Principal’s Message


Welcome to Poet-Christian School, Home of the Eagles!

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the new Principal of such a wonderful school community with rich traditions in academic achievement and student growth. Our School Mission is to guide and inspire our students to be a generation of independent thinkers who are responsible and prepared for the future. Poet-Christian is comprised of talented staff members who are committed to providing an exceptional K-8 experience to our students and their families.

In conjunction with our staff, our PTSA is an extremely dedicated community of individuals who work collaboratively to plan, prepare, and provide our students and families with access to a variety of interactive activities, extraordinary events, and programs throughout the school year. We are extremely grateful for the continued participation from our school community in these activities. These activities help us to create and maintain positive and supportive learning environments for our students and our families.

My personal journey in Education began here in Tracy. I am a 2002 graduate of West High School. After graduating from West, I attended San Joaquin Delta Junior College from 2002 - 2004, where I earned my Associates in Liberal Arts Degree. In May of 2007, I graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.S. in Communication (Go Vandals!). Shortly after graduating from Idaho, I returned home where I began teaching Special Education, Physical Education and coaching High School Football, Basketball and Baseball. In 2017 I earned a Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University. For the past three years I have served as Assistant Principal for West High School.

 I am beyond excited for the opportunity to join the team at Poet-Christian and look forward to serving our students in preparation for a great 2022 –2023 school year!

Learn, Grow, Succeed!

Mr. Wichman, Principal
