Did you know that C. Milton Wright got new administration this year? Well, if not, now you know! I will be interviewing our two new assistant principals whose names are, Mr. Blankenship, and Mrs. Davage-Jones (DJ). Mr. Blankenship is the 10th grade assistant principal and Mrs. DJ is the 12th grade assistant principal. My goal is to get to know more of them, and pass it on to you so you don’t feel that you don’t know anything about them. See the interview below to get to know more Mrs. DJ.  

 

Q: Give us a little background about yourself.  

A: I’m from Baltimore city-born and raised. I worked in Baltimore City Schools for 16  years, and went to college at Notre Dame of Maryland. I came to Harford County 4 years  ago. 

 

Q: Where did you work/what did you do before coming to CMW? 

A: In the city I was everything you could be in a school. I was a social studies teacher, I was a counselor, and a principal. When I came to Harford County I was a counselor at Alternative Ed.  

 

Q: Why did you switch to CMW? 

A: I’ve always wanted to go back into administration and that’s what I do here. I don’t know. I just landed here!  

 

Q: Are you happy with your decision to come to CMW? 

A: I am. I am definitely.  

 

Q: What’s been the best part of CMW? 

A: The kids. I think you all are so different, so unique, I love lunch time ‘cause I get to meet you and talk to you. That’s probably the best part of my day.  

 

Q: What are you looking forward to the most at CMW? 

A: I’m definitely looking to start a new club here. I’m thinking of a Voices of Equity club. I’d also love to start an empowering women club here.  

 

Q: Overall, how has the transition been to a new job? 

A: Great! I’m learning so much. I think making the jump from counselor to administrator is different. I love hearing people’s stories so being an administrator has been hard because it requires more consequences.  

 

Other notable things said by Mrs. DJ: 

“If I can get to know you, I want to help you” 

 

I hope that the interview above was able to answer some of your questions about the new admin. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask them! They are more than happy to talk to you.
