Mr. Dwayne Richardson

Dear Staff and Families,

I hope this letter finds you all in good health and high spirits. It is with great excitement and honor that I introduce myself as the new assistant principal of Erma Henderson Academy. As we embark on this new academic year, I share my vision and goals for our school community.

First and foremost, my vision revolves around fostering a nurturing and inclusive learning environment where every student feels valued, respected, and empowered. Our school will be a place that celebrates diversity and promotes equality, ensuring that each student's unique talents and abilities are recognized and supported.

To achieve this vision, it is imperative that we maintain open lines of communication and collaboration with both our staff and families. Strong partnerships between home and school are essential in creating a holistic educational experience for our students. Together, we can build a strong support system and ensure every child receives the best possible education.

As your Assistant Principal, I am committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment that nurtures academic and personal growth. I believe in setting clear goals and high expectations for student achievement while acknowledging and addressing each student's needs. Every child has the potential to succeed, and it is our duty to provide the necessary resources and support to unlock their full potential.

Furthermore, I am dedicated to promoting a culture of continuous improvement and professional development among our staff. I firmly believe that teachers are the backbone of our school, and it is through their passion, dedication, and expertise that our students will thrive. As such, I am committed to providing ongoing support, training, and resources to ensure our staff has the tools they need to excel in their roles.

In line with my vision, this upcoming year will focus on data-driven instruction. By using data effectively, we will be able to identify areas of strength and areas for improvement, allowing us to make informed decisions and tailor our instruction to meet the specific needs of our students. Additionally, we will work towards fostering a culture of collaboration, where teachers have opportunities to share best practices and learn from one another.

I am confident that together, as a united school community, we can achieve great things. I look forward to working with each and every one of you as we embark on this exciting journey. My door is always open, and I welcome your input and ideas. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of our students.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our school. Here's to a successful and fulfilling academic year ahead!


Warmest regards,

Dwayne Richardson
