Dr. William Corbett
Dr. Corbett

Welcome to the Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School web site. I started in public education in 1989 as a teacher at Hamilton Disston School, a center for students with the education label of Severely Emotionally Disturbed (SED). In 1994, I moved to Richard L Sanders, another school for students who were classified as SED. I was principal of that school for eight years before coming to Morgan Fitzgerald in 2005.

I have a Bachelors degree in Business Administration, a Masters Degree in Vocational Education and a Doctorate in Education, all from the University of South Florida. I have been a resident of the Tampa Bay area since 1976. I am married to my best friend, Mare, and have a wonderful eight year old son, Conner.

My educational philosophy is that all children can learn to read, write, and perform math at their grade level given the appropriate level of support. It becomes the job of the school to determine the appropriate level of support and to then provide that support.
You can view my monthly school progress reports at my monthly letter.
