• Hello Wilson Elementary,



    My name is Brent “Mac” McConaghy and I am your new Principal at Wilson. I am incredibly happy to serve as your new principal and look forward to an exciting 2023/2024 school year. Since I’ll be new to Wilson, I felt an introduction and some history might help you get to know me. 

    My family and I have lived in Southern Oregon for seven years now, and I have been in education for 15 years. My wife and I come from families of teachers where each of our parents taught second, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade for more than 55 combined years. We have a four-year-old daughter who is starting her transitional kindergarten year and is being taught by my wife in a neighboring school district. Together, we have a lot of elementary experience and soon, we will also understand what it feels like to be the parents of an elementary school child.  

    I have served as an administrator (Assistant Principal & Athletics Director at North Medford High School) within the Medford School District and am familiar with the Wilson area as I was serving the older siblings of some of our Wilson families.  My in-home visits within the Wilson zone always reminded me of a close-knit community where families asked important questions and always sought to do what is best for their students. I have been a school principal for two years and look forward to bringing that experience to Wilson to bring both stability and energy so we can all learn and grow together. 

    The 2023/2024 school year is going to have some incredible learning opportunities for our students, staff, and myself, and I cannot wait to get to know each of our students by their name, strength, and need and do something positive with that information. 





Principal Mac
