    Greetings, All!   


    My name is Dallas Lee, and I am excited to serve as the new principal of Drew-Freeman Middle School! 


    I believe a well-rounded education is one of the most powerful tools for liberation and advancement. I learned this lesson at an early age as a scholar who completed elementary, middle and high school in Chicago, Illinois. My former educators instilled an intrinsic love for learning that has taken me places I would have never imagined – from West Africa to my new home, Drew-Freeman Middle School. 


    I attended and graduated from, Langston University in Langston, Oklahoma where I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in English Education. My love for learning did not stop there – I also earned a Master’s in Reading Instruction from Concordia University and a Master’s in School Administration from Trinity Washington University. In 2015, I also received school leadership endorsement from New Leaders. I am currently working on my Doctorate of Education, with a concentration in curriculum, teaching, learning, and leadership, at Northeastern University.   


    As an educator, I wake up every morning with an unyielding drive and desire to make sure scholars have access to the best education they could possibly have, for a high-quality education should be a right, not a privilege. I believe every adult, in a school, can make “positive deposits” into the lives of young people. It just takes belief and a little elbow grease. 


    I’m not just excited about being “the principal”- I am excited about: fostering collaboration amongst individuals within the community, strategizing initiatives to ensure our middle school scholars have increased access to selective enrollment high schools, increasing the capacity of teacher leaders and getting to know each and every one of you! All of the aforementioned can have a positive impact on Drew-Freeman Middle School, and, as a result, have a positive impact on our scholars. 


    I look forward to a productive school year! If you have any questions or concerns please email at dallas.lee@pgcps.org .  Go Falcons!
