Welcome to Avonworth Elementary!
My name is Dr. Bill Battistone and I am the Principal at Avonworth Elementary School! I have been serving as an administrator in this district since the Spring of 2017, and I am excited to be a part of the Antelope Community. I moved to Pittsburgh from Iowa City, Iowa, where I served as a K-6 Assistant Principal for two and a half years. Prior to that position, I was a teacher in West Des Moines, Iowa.
I attended Drake University in Des Moines where I received my Undergraduate Degrees (Education, History), my Master's Degree (Educational Leadership), and my Doctoral Degree (Ph.D. in Educational Leadership). I consider myself to be a "life-long learner," and am always searching out new and innovative ways of thinking!
When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, playing golf and rugby, and watching the Pittsburgh sports teams and the Iowa Hawkeyes! My wife and I have been married since 2016, and we have a dog and a cat who get along just fine!
I am very proud to be the Principal at Avonworth Elementary! We have wonderful students, parents, faculty, and staff members. My office is always open and I look forward to connecting with you soon!
All of my best,
Bill Battistone, Ph.D.
Avonworth Elementary School Principal
