Mr. Torian Billings

Dear STEAM Family,

It is my honor to serve the STEAM Community this year and beyond. I am Torian Billings, the new principal of STEAM. I am excited to lead the staff and meet all of our wonderful students and families. My primary goal is to help our students feel safe and successful at school. I will wear many hats but the well-being of our students will always drive my work.

During my career, I've had many unique and meaningful teaching and administration opportunities. My journey has taken me to Plymouth-Canton, Lansing, Inkster, and my hometown, Flint. I'm also a proud graduate of Michigan State University (Go Green!). In addition to being an educator, I'm a proud husband and father to two wonderful sons. My family is extremely important to me and I am grateful for their support.

In my new role, I look forward to continuing the rich tradition of excellence at A2 STEAM. I know that I'm inheriting a talented and unique school with exceptional students. With the help of our wonderful staff, I will create, develop and maintain the culture of learning that has been established. Our vision at A2 STEAM involves collaborating with parents, students, and staff members to create the best learning experience possible. Above all, we will value your student as a learner and as a child. This means celebrating diversity, building social-emotional capacity, and prioritizing physical, emotional, and intellectual safety. A2 STEAM will be a school where students will come not only to learn but to be loved.

This school year will provide many opportunities to connect with you and your family. It's my hope that each of you will get to know me in your own special way. The first opportunity will be the Popsicles on the Playground event on August 25th. More information will be coming in the
near future including an introduction from our new Assistant Principal, Ms. Sayles. Please enjoy the rest of your summer. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me. I look forward to meeting you soon.
