Principal Statement

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to a new 2021-2022 academic school year. I am your newly appointed Delhi Middle School principal. I have been an educator for the Richland Parish School Board for the past 25 years. As an educator, my philosophy on teaching is that through effective and quality instruction all students have the ability to learn to the best of their full potential.  As the instructional leader, I will be fully committed to ensuring that your child receives the best and safest educational experience possible. The entire Delhi Middle School staff is committed to meeting the individual needs of each child.  We have high expectations of all students and strive to ensure that each child meets a level of success consistent with their abilities.  This is best accomplished with the assistance and cooperation of parents and stakeholders.  Delhi Middle School has a long history of positive parental and community involvement and we encourage you to be actively involved in your child’s education.  

Delhi Middle School’s faculty and staff truly believe these three key components, Home, Community and School make up a winning team!  Our only concern is that everything we do must be in the best interest of our students.  We will meet any new challenges head-on and build upon our past successes.  As the instructional leader, I bring a belief that the students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  I am excited to bring my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students.  Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to the collaboration and support we will be able to give each other.

I am here to make every effort to help your child reach his/her fullest potential.  I vow to give the absolute best of my abilities to our students’, and I will request the same efforts from our staff and school community.  Together we will continue to move Delhi Middle School students towards their future educational endeavors.  This will be done while maintaining a safe, productive and conducive learning environment, guided with love and support helping them obtain an illuminating and prosperous future. Join me in working toward another great school year at Delhi Middle School. In the words of former DMS Principal, Floyd McDade, “It is a Great Day to be a Delhi RAM”.
