It’s a pleasure to make your virtual acquaintance! My name is Jameson M. Smith, even though Staff and students affectionately call me VP Smith. This school year marks my 20th year in education and my 3rd as the Vice Principal of DCP....The place to Be!. My intentions are and will continue to be rooted in supporting students and their families in the areas that are foundational to building confident, intelligent, and assertive graduates.
As a native Detroiter, EAST SIDE, I embody all that Detroit has been known for, both good and bad. So, I’m intimately aware of the struggles, challenges, and successes that we can endure. My wife and I are educators and we work tirelessly to instill character, grit and perseverance in our 5 children as well as each child we are entrusted to educate.
As a leader at DCP, I strive to create a school culture and climate that facilitates the cultivation, nurturing, and management of trusting relationships between all stakeholders. Consequently, these relationships provide a fertile landscape that we leveraged to adopt and implement proven strategies in our effort to mature students academically, socially, and emotionally.Go Colts,Jameson M.
