My name is Mrs. Jenaii Dawkins Edwards. I am an Assistant Principal here at Alice Drive Middle School. I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but I have been living here in Sumter for over 30 years. I have 21 year old son who is in the Army,  an 11 year old son, and a 7 year old son. This is my eighteenth year in education children and I have enjoyed every year.

My teaching philosophy is; “All children have the ability to learn. It is up to us as educators to teach them using the knowledge that we have obtained. Each child should be treated as an individual and be afforded the opportunity to become a productive citizen in society. “

Please feel free to call me at 775-0821 (extension 131) or email me at jenaii.edwards@sumterschools.net with any questions, comments, or concerns.

In It Together!

Mrs. Jenaii D. Edwards, M.Ed.
