Principal’s Message

It is with gratitude and excitement that I introduce myself as the newly appointed Principal of Douglas Freeman High School.

A graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, I have been an educator for more than 17 years. I began my career as a Social Studies teacher at Tucker High School. From 2008 to 2013, I worked as both an Assistant and an Associate Principal at Freeman High School before leaving to accept a principal position in Chesterfield. I cannot help but consider myself extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to return to Freeman, a school for which I have such an affinity.

As I sat and watched Freeman’s graduation ceremony this past June, I was once again reminded of the school’s enduring tradition of producing outstanding and remarkable young men and women–each graduating class uniquely different, but exceptional and accomplished in their own right. I look forward to continuing the work of supporting that longstanding tradition. I also look forward to working with Freeman’s terrific faculty and staff to provide rewarding and meaningful world-class educational experiences for all our students.

I would like to express my gratitude to Mrs. Anne Poates for her service to the Tuckahoe community and specifically the students and families of Freeman. I would also like to take a moment to introduce Mr. John Marshall as Freeman High School’s newest administrator. Mr. Marshall will serve as our Associate Principal.

Once again, I am truly overjoyed to be back at Freeman, and I look forward to serving our students and families. Thank you.
