Mr. Jameson Smith
Welcome From Mr. Smith
As the newly appointed Assistant Principal of Detroit Collegiate Prep High School, I am honored and energized to serve and support the students of the City of Detroit in this capacity. My professional journey began 17 years ago following 10 years as a production supervisor. With Secondary and Post-Secondary experience, I come with a practitioner’s lens of past, present, and future expectations of our students.
My wife and I parent 5 children ranging in ages from 8 to 20. Therefore, I have an intimate relationship with the rigors of family life that can either support or impede the academic, social and emotional growth of children. Consequently, compassion is a cornerstone of my style of leadership.
Learning is my life! My personal charge is to continually upgrade my subconscious mind, through reading, informational media, meditation, reflection, and conversation. I believe every moment is a teaching and learning opportunity. Thus, the mantra I live by is, “Embrace the Struggle, for without it, progress is not possible.” In short, my passion is to inspire and motivate educators and students to embrace challenges and seek opportunities that provide the greatest amount of social, emotional, economic, and academic capital.
I look forward to educating and empowering the faculty, staff and students of this community to build a stronger Detroit.
