MeEt Principal dogbe
I am honored to serve as the new principal of Moten Elementary School. I look forward to meeting the teachers, staff members, students and families that are a part of our school community. Over the past 14 years I’ve worked in a variety of educational environments and learned everything I could about the best ways to educate our children. However, the most rewarding work of my career was as an Assistant Principal in DCPS. The past three years I’ve spent increasing literacy proficiency, developing student leadership programming, and managing an arts partnerships in Ward 7 at JC Nalle Elementary School uniquely prepared me to serve you and our entire Moten community. As I join the Moten Community the first priorities I will focus on are:
In order to start this critical work, I’ve outlined a plan that specifies how the above goals will be met during my first few months as principal. My primary focus will be to listen to our community, learn the facts, and leverage our resources. Over the next few weeks I invite you to join me in preparation for a great school year. I am inspired by the potential of our community. I know that together we can lead our children to great heights!
Yours in the work,
Akela L. Dogbe
