Principal’s Message

Dear Hampton Family, 

Welcome to the new school year! ! am excited to start the 2020-2021 school year as principal at Hampton Middle School.  Our teachers and staff are looking forward to meeting and working with our students, parents, and community members.  We strongly believe our families are an invaluable part of our school community.  Hampton will continue to be a school community where we value diversity, differences, and make decisions that address the needs of our students.  Virtual learning has become a new normal for all of us. Last school year was an unprecedented one in the history of our educational system. Hampton was closed to normal activities and we moved to distance learning. The success of this monumental task was due the dedication and great skills of our staff, students, and parents. As we move towards the 50/50 model in the month of November, our staff continue to prepare for student return.

I began my teaching career in New York City Public Schools and later moved to Virginia to work as a 7th Grade Math Teacher in Fairfax County Public Schools. After two years of teaching in Fairfax County, I decided to continue my career as an educator in Prince William County Public Schools.  The 2020-2021 school year will be my nineteenth year as an educator in Prince William County. I began my career in Prince William County Schools as a middle school math teacher at Beville Middle School. In 2004, I was appointed Assistant Principal at Stonewall Middle School and in 2006, Assistant Principal at Beville Middle School. In August of 2006, I served as Principal at New Dominion Alternative Center and for the past eight years, Principal of Hampton Middle School. My goal is to create a learning environment where students grow in knowledge, teachers actively engage students in rigorous learning, and parents continue to be our partners in education.

George M. Hampton Middle School is an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program school which provides a rigorous, high quality education, challenging students to excel in their studies, and encouraging both personal and academic achievement. The aim of the IBMYP Program is to develop internationally minded students who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help create a better and more peaceful world. IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These IB learner profile represents 10 attributes that can help individuals and groups become responsible members of local, national, and global communities.

Thank you for providing us the opportunity to be part of your child's education. Each of us will do our very best to create a safe and enjoyable, whole-child focused learning environment for each student.  On behalf of the entire staff and faculty at Hampton Middle, we are looking forward to partnering with you and your child during the 2020-2021 school year.  We hope to see you at PTSO and Advisory Council meetings, Back to School Night, and other school activities.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions.  We look forward to another great year of learning.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jehovanni Mitchell
