Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is an honor to introduce myself as the newly appointed principal of Deerfield Beach Middle School. I am grateful to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education and Jr. Buck Pride! Professionally, I have been an educator at Deerfield Beach High School for the past fifteen years. During my tenure at Deerfield Beach High School, I have worked 7 years as an English teacher and 8 years as an Assistant Principal. I am excited to bring my skills as an instructional leader to Deerfield Beach Middle School and work with you as a partner in your child's education.
Along with the faculty and staff, I will work hard to continue the academic success. I understand that academic success occurs by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on standards-based education, project-based learning, social and emotional learning, and providing a safe and nurturing environment.
All of us at Deerfield Beach Middle School are excited about the new school year. It is our goal to continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are relevant, rigorous, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. Our faculty and staff at Deerfield Beach Middle School will focus on the results of student learning from the academic experiences by using multiple indicators, which provide them with opportunities to adjust instructional practices and personalize the learning to support our students in the classroom. As we begin to reimagine our middle school, teachers will gradually embed project/problem-based learning within their classrooms.
As your Principal, it is important that everyone who steps through our doors have a positive experience. Our families are the most important visitors on our campus. It is an honor and privilege to educate our students. One of my priorities is to provide an environment where teachers, students and parents are excited about being at Deerfield Beach Middle School because I believe that a positive attitude will enable us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a safe, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.
I look forward working with you as a team to help each student at Deerfield Beach Middle meet their goals and have a successful school year!
Dr. Latori Fulton, Principal
Deerfield Beach Middle School
