He is a former member of the Prince William Education Association, and an active member of the Prince William Federation of Teachers and the Virginia AFL-CIO.
Mr. Wilk began his educational career in Prince William County Public Schools in the fall of 2008 as a 7th grade civics and economics teacher at Woodbridge Middle School. He was also chosen to help pilot Prince William County Public Schools’ same gender teaching program. During his three years at Woodbridge, Mr. Wilk served as the assistant football coach, assistant track coach, head track coach, and the advisor to the school drama program. Additionally, he represented the 7th grade each year on the school’s Advisory Council.
Looking for a new experience and the opportunity to teach traditional co-ed classrooms, Mr. Wilk transferred from Woodbridge to Gainesville Middle School, where he taught 8th grade Civics and Economics for three years. During his time at Gainesville, he was recognized by the local press for his 2012 presidential election project, and for motivating his former students to engage in local politics.

He is married to Lori Spitzer-Wilk, a teacher at Forest Park High School. Together, they have two sons, Dominic and Jackson. Mr. Wilk is a member of Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church in Woodbridge.
