As Director of Student Support & Discipline Review Office at the large Henrico Virginia County School District, Dr. Noel has overseen a philosophical shift in this school system from a reactive approach with challenging students to a more proactive, preventive approach. This informative 90-minute webinar will provide administrators, teachers and school leaders insight into initiatives that can help improve school climate and create a climate for academic success with at-risk, or hard-to-reach, students.
In order to reach, and successfully teach, hard-to-reach students, Dr. William Noel, Sr. believes it is incumbent upon educators to learn about students’ lives outside school - because understanding who students are outside school has direct implications for what they do inside school. Dr. Noel agrees that “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship,” as Dr. James Comer of Yale University stated.
In this informative 90-minute webinar, discover how Henrico County transitioned from a traditional, punitive approach regarding inappropriate student behavior to an instructional, disciplined approach. From his time as an alternative education teacher, social studies teacher, coach, assistant principal, and now director, Dr. Noel will share candid professional and personal experiences that have taught him “How to Reach the (sometimes) Hard-to-Reach.”

Currently the Director of the Student Support & Disciplinary Review Office for Henrico County Public Schools near Richmond, Virginia, Dr. William Noel’s calling and passion for working with students is perfectly captured by this Mark Twain quote: “The two most important days of your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why.” That calling and passion is why Dr. Noel remains committed to being an influential role model for all students, but especially for those (sometimes) Hard-to-Reach students.
After graduating from the University of Virginia in 1991, Dr. Noel began his journey in education – first as a substitute teacher, then as an alternative education teacher, social studies teacher, coach and assistant principal. Upon earning his Ed.D. degree in Educational Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University, Dr. Noel assumed his current position. When asked by a colleague if he was going to miss teaching when he moved into administration, he said, “I will always be a teacher - just no longer from a classroom.”
