Dear Jackson Middle School Students and Families,

It is with great excitement and anticipation that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Jackson Middle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with an extremely dedicated staff that’s charged with the great responsibility of working with the students who need us the most. Joining this family is a privilege and I look forward to meeting you soon.

I have dedicated nearly 20 years to the field of education, working with students ranging from kindergarten through 12th grade in a variety of roles. I have served as a middle school teacher, athletics director, middle school assistant principal, and middle school principal.  Most recently, I served as the principal of Pruette SCALE Academy.  I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to the Jackson Middle School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure school-wide success.

On a personal note, my wife and I are both GCS educators. I have a son and daughter that are students in Guilford County Schools. We are proud to be employed by the same school system that our children attend, one that values high standards by providing rich learning experiences for all students.

Education is a life-long process and my expectation is to learn about the uniqueness of Jackson Middle School this year and in the years to come.   Most importantly, I believe that students are the primary focus of all school-based decisions.  I am excited to unite my personal and professional experiences, willingness to learn, and a student-centered approach to support our students.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if needed.

Mr. Fredrick Sellars
