MeetMr. Perez Chavez
Hello and welcome to Woodside Elementary! My name is Amado Pérez-Chávez, and I have been an educator for 28 years. Before I became an administrator, I proudly served as a classroom teacher. I spent twenty four years in the classroom, those experiences have foremost shaped my knowledge and passion for education. I began teaching directly after graduating with my bachelor’s degree from a university in México. Later, I obtained a master’s degree in teaching, as well as a bilingual endorsement, from Aquinas College. I also hold a degree in administration.
I am a firm believer that building strong relationships in school promotes a positive learning environment and leads to academic success. At Woodside Elementary we work hard to strengthen our relationships with students, parents, and community. I look forward to accomplishing many great things together!

My kids have thrived at Woodside due to the caring staff and teachers that have the ability to recognize both strengths and weaknesses and give encouragement accordingly! The strong communication is appreciated and they value and respect my input as a parent. My kids are safe, happy and thriving in the diverse environment. I am confident they are on the path to being "Life Ready!"Libby Piotrzkowski, parent
The teachers and staff at Woodside Elementary are wonderful! They truly care about all of the students and are committed to providing the best education and support a child can have. They are always willing to give advice and suggestions on how I can better support my child's learning at home, which has been very helpful and has made a big difference.Linda Kisner, parent
