• Mr. Sadler

    Welcome to Southwest Guilford Middle School. My name is Dereck Sadler and I will serve as your 8th grade Assistant Principal for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my 26th year as a professional educator and I am honored to be entering my fourth year at Southwest Middle School.  I am a proud member of "The Ranch" and look forward to an outstanding, productive, and rewarding year.  This is an extremely special group of students who have endured incredible challenges and now enter their final stage of their middle school journey.  My goal is to work collectively with staff, families and the Southwest community to ensure students receive a rigorous, equitable, and inclusive education.  I believe in the ability of all students to experience success/growth and anticipate a great partnership with all stakeholders.  I am proud to be a member of such a magnificent administrative team and will do my best to prepare our students to become responsible, productive citizens with the ability to think critically.

    At Southwest Guilford Middle School, we walk the PATH:

    Practice Honesty

    Act Responsibly

    Treat Others With Respect

    Have Self-Discipline 

    Open communication is the foundation of successful partnerships.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have.  I look forward to working with you and having a "SPECTACULAR" school year!
