Office of the Superintendent

Good Evening Taylor Students and Families,

I wanted to reach out this evening and introduce myself to you. My name is Mike Wegher, and I will be your interim superintendent for the 2023/2024 school year. This is my 23rd year in the world of education. I previously served the Taylor community for seventeen years as both a middle and high school Social Studies teacher and as a middle and high school assistant principal. I left the Taylor community in 2018 to further my experience by taking on the role of principal at John Glenn High School in Westland. These vast and wide ranging experiences helped me to continually gain the skills that are necessary to take on the responsibilities of being the interim superintendent.

With that said, I don’t want to waste your time by citing my resume to you line by line. Those aren’t the feelings and concerns that you have currently. I want to take the time to share with you what I see going forward for our district. When I left the Taylor School District, we had just closed Kennedy High School and feelings in the community were quite strained to say the least. Since then, that momentum has changed. The citizens of Taylor passed the first bond in over 50 years, which has allowed this community to take part in a process that few communities get to see, the construction of a brand new high school facility dedicated to being on the cutting edge of college and career readiness. That momentum does not just apply to the high school. We have moved forward at every level to make sure that we are meeting the needs of ALL students. We have created initiatives that will meet our students' needs in all ways to help them to see success such as our Resiliency initiative, our Trauma-Aware practices, our Family Resource Center and oh so much more. I am dedicated to making sure that we continue to move in the right direction.

I pledge that we will always put students first, that we will Educate, Engage, and Empower all students everyday.  After all, this is the Mission that the Taylor community expects of us on a daily basis.

I want to close by sharing something near and dear to my heart. When I left in 2018, the students that served on the Taylor High School Student Advisory gave me a going away gift that I proudly display in my office. It is a gold M and a gold W that have pictures of each student holding a whiteboard on which they wrote the one or two words that best described Mr. Wegher. Two in particular have always impacted me the most, the words “Sincere” and “Family.” I promise to always be “Sincere” in my decision making and in my communication. And as for “Family,” it speaks for itself. I always felt that the Taylor community is a large and welcoming family, one that I am proud to be returning to with the honor of serving as interim superintendent.

Sincerely,

Michael B. Wegher
