Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

Larry Washington
It has been my pleasure to be an administrator in the New London School District. I have worked in the New London School system as a Dean and Assistant Principal at New London High School and Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School. Prior to my employment in New London, I worked at Woodland Hills Middle School as an Assistant Principal outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

I studied Business and Education at West Liberty State University, and I graduated from Waynesburg University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education K – 8 Multi-Subjects. I received a Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction and Supervision along with my K-12 Principal Certification from Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of children as the Director and Principal of SMMS @ Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School. This is accomplished through setting high academic expectations for all students, and providing needed support systems to ensure their success. The goal of SMMS is for all students to be college and career ready through addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community.
