Mr. Van Wormer

Welcome to N.A. Walbran Elementary School

  • My name is Jim Van Wormer and I have the opportunity and privilege to join the Oriskany Central School District and community for a second time as an interim administrator. I previously served the District as the Jr./Sr. high school interim principal in the spring of 2019.


    I will be serving this assignment at the N. A. Walbran Elementary School. I look forward to this time as my previous assignment demonstrated what truly outstanding students, staff, parents and community members make up the Oriskany Central School District. This collective collaboration of the many segments that make up the school district is truly unique to this region and one that gives the Oriskany CSD family such pride in their schools and community.


    My philosophy after 48 years in education is simple; all of our teachers and staff members are here to serve our students, your children, in the best possible way. We will continue to provide a rich research based academic program that is age and needs appropriate, while making sure we address the continued development of the whole child.


    It has been my passion to work with children, teachers and staff members to see the growth and development of our students on a daily basis. My door will always be open and I look forward to this time with the District as they search for a new elementary school principal.
