I have served as an educator for the Richmond County School System for over 20 years. At the start of this new year, I am honored to have been chosen to be one of the Assistant Principals for John M. Tutt Middle School. At the onset of my career, I believed all students could learn and be granted an education. Although my sentiments are the same however my mindset is that students learn at different stages.
Presently today’s students are exposed to much more than education. They are dealing with the challenges of life’s circumstances. As Assistant Principal, I will continue to embrace the pathway of providing students opportunities to help navigate middle school and circumvent a downward spiral. I will continue to serve by inspiring the faculty, staff, and stakeholders to encourage our scholars to embrace a deeper yearn for learning.
One of the many quotes from Maya Angelou, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” As I tread the halls and visit the classrooms of John M. Tutt Middle School, I embrace the charge that is given to me.
