Welcome Mr. Jason Spitzer

Welcome Mr. Spitzer!
Welcome Mr. Spitzer!

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am proud and excited to introduce myself as your William A. Bailey Elementary principal for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year! Some of you may know me as a teacher and adviser at nearby Desert Junior-Senior High School, but I wanted to take this opportunity to connect with you all and build excitement for this upcoming year. 

For my entire eight year career, I have worked for Muroc Joint Unified School District and taught at Desert Junior-Senior High School. Some of my accomplishments there include increasing English Language Arts and AP English exam scores, creating a Student Leadership program, and reintroducing a dual enrollment at the school for the first time in more than a decade. I have been named as a 23rd Congressional District Inspirational Educator by Desert High School’s valedictorians for five consecutive years, and this past school year, I was named Kern County Teacher of the Year. 

That being said, I am ready for the next challenge in my educational career: leading Bailey Elementary, as your principal.

My goals for this upcoming year include: establishing Bailey’s unique identity; maintaining a fun, positive, and safe learning environment and school experience for student academic and social-emotional growth; and supporting all students, staff, and parents in our collective endeavors at Bailey.  

Student success happens when parents and educators come together to support students. Please join me in this monumental effort to build a better future for us all, one child at a time. Do not hesitate to contact me by email, phone, or by stopping by my office. I would love to hear from you.

Go Bears!

Jason Spitzer, Principal
