Ms. Tonya Faison, Principal


Greetings Parents/Guardians,

It is with pure excitement that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.

I am Tonya M. Faison, the proud Principal of James Martin Middle School, "Home of the Cougars!" The opportunity to serve the students, families and the school community excites me; hence, I bring extreme enthusiasm and passion to the table with a student-centered philosophy towards school leadership. I know that if a positive environment for both students and staff is created, positive things will transpire! Likewise, I believe in putting high expectations in place for staff and students and in turn, I expect students and staff to hold me accountable to the same high performance standards. I believe that if we stay grounded in student achievement coupled with a positive atmosphere, all students will achieve.

The entire James Martin family is committed to the achievement of all students. As principal, I have an obligation to do everything in my power to help our students create and achieve their dreams. In an ever-changing society, the expectation is that our students are prepared to enter high school and to compete on a global scale.

As we prepare our students to meet these global demands, it is imperative that we facilitate learning through sound, research-based and innovative practices. The faculty and staff of James Martin Middle School is dedicated to preparing students for the realities of life. I believe that every student possesses the ability to acquire the necessary skills to reach his or her full potential. I look forward to establishing and maintain a partnership with you to ensure that our students reach that potential.

I am beginning my 21st year in education and serving my fifth year as principal at James Martin Middle School. My years of service in education has allowed me the opportunity to serve in several different roles. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the students, parents and community of James Martin Middle School and look forward to the successes that lie ahead.

Thank you for allowing me and my staff to serve your children this school year!

Tonya M. Faison
