Principal's Message

Welcome, Mr. Christiansen!
Westside community-
My name is Todd Christiansen and it is my privilege to be building principal at Westside Elementary. #WestsideBestside!  
I was born, raised, and currently live in Hampton Roads.  After spending seven years in finance/insurance, I became a Career Switcher through Old Dominion University and began my adventure in education.  I worked as a middle school math teacher before transitioning to administration. There is truly nothing like working in the school system.  It is dynamic and always exciting.  No two days are alike and they fly by.  I love it!
Working in a school also allows me to do what I am passionate about, which is creating opportunities for children, learning, and public service.  I am also passionate about setting high expectations for ALL students.   
I am proud to be the principal at Westside.  I promise to work hard to make sure that the Westside community has a school they can be proud of too.
