Dean Wilson

After exploring opportunities in both industry and entrepreneurship (and a brief stint as a beekeeper), Dean Wilson returned to his true passion—education. As a high-school principal, he is a diehard champion for building dynamic professional environments for educators. He led the charge for strong PLC collaboration and implementing a data-driven approach to learning with his own teams. He is the 2017 president of the Utah Association of Secondary Principals.

Todd Theobald

A self-described "regular guy", Todd is anything but ordinary. As principal, he rallied his team to transform a failing elementary school into a B-rated school in just one year. Todd was recognized as the 2017 Utah Elementary School Principal of the Year and a 2017 NAESP Distinguished Principal. Because he “bleeds elementary”, he works closely with other educators who are working to innovate assessment strategies, teaching practices, and collaboration in their elementary schools.
