6th-Grade - Mrs. Cassandra Adderley
It is with great pleasure that I welcome our new 6th graders this year.
I believe that as the 6th Grade Assistant Principal at Attucks Middle School, I must set the standard for a rich, student-centered learning environment. As part of a new generation of instructional leadership, my philosophy centers around integrating the necessary resources to develop an intellectually, emotionally and physically sound human being capable of making informed decisions and prospering in a democratic society. The purpose of education is to provide the necessary skills and competencies for an educated citizenry to promote a democratic society. I must be an instructional leader making data lead decisions and willing to take risks to maintain a competitive edge. This contemporary concept reflects my philosophy that all agents of the school district are responsible for promoting student achievement. As an instructional leader, I want to be easy to understand, practical, sensible and responsive to the environment of the school and the values of the community.
My goals for Attucks Middle School are as follows:
- To make certain that every student meets and exceeds the minimum requirements for promotion and is prepared to be productive citizens in society.
- To make certain that students successfully compete at the highest levels nationally and internationally and are prepared to make well-reasoned, thoughtful, and healthy lifelong decisions.
- To provide an environment that is drug-free and protects students health, safety, and civil rights.
- To provide the appropriate curriculum resources and professional development necessary to ensure that all students receive an equitable education.
- To offer opportunities for parents and guardians to be active partners in achieving our school improvement and educational accountability goals.
It is an honor to continue to serve our wonderful community.
