Message From the Principals


On behalf of everyone at Willett & LMPA, we would like to welcome all families to our early childhood learning communities! My name is Michael Baulier, and I am in my second year as the proud Principal of the George F. Willett Early Childhood Center. I have been an educator for fifteen years, and this marks my seventh year as a principal. Before joining Norwood Public Schools, I was principal of the Mozart Elementary School, a Boston Public School located in Roslindale. As a school leader, I am committed to collaborating with staff, students, and families to lead change so all of our students have access to an inclusive and equitable education.

My name is Kristen Noonan and I am the Principal and Director of Early Childhood at the Little Mustangs Preschool Academy (LMPA). This is my first year as Principal and my first year in the Norwood Public Schools! Prior to coming to Norwood, I was a School Adjustment Counselor in a PreK program for students with special needs in Brockton for 12 years.  I have dedicated my career to enhancing early childhood education for all students, and am passionate about educating our littlest learners. 

The LMPA currently holds seven integrated preschools, and two Practical Application of Skills (PACS) classrooms. The Willett Early Childhood Center houses thirteen full-day kindergarten classes. Our enrollment is approximately 400 students ages 3-6 between both schools. Educators at the Willett and LMPA are highly skilled at planning and implementing positive learning experiences for all students. Our goal is for all classrooms to serve as nurturing environments where students grow socially, emotionally, and academically. We invite all families to engage with our educators, join Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) events, and support at-home learning with reinforcement of literacy and numeracy skills. 

We understand the extraordinary responsibility of our early educator roles as you, their families, entrust us to provide a safe and supportive educational experience for your children. Pre-K and K is not only an introduction to Norwood Public Schools, but also an introduction to K-12 education. Together, our collective efforts can foster and empower critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, and leaders who are equipped with the knowledge and skills to enact positive change in our community, nation, and world.

Please feel free to contact the school at (Willett) 781-762-6805 and (LMPA) 781-440-5802 or reach out to us at mbaulier@norwood.k12.ma.us OR knoonan@norwood.k12.ma.us.

Thank you for the privilege to serve your children. 

Michael L. Baulier, Principal & Kristen Noonan. Principal
