• Principal's Welcome



    Dear Thomas Johnson Middle School Community,

    It is with great excitement and expectation that I introduce myself as the principal of Thomas
    Johnson Middle School! I am a native of Prince George’s County with thirteen years of
    experience in Prince George’s County Public Schools as a mathematics teacher, instructional
    coach, Resident Principal and Assistant Principal. I am also a husband and father of four
    children (ages 13, 7, 5 and 2).

    As the principal of Thomas Johnson Middle School, I look forward to partnering with the school
    community to ensure the success of our scholars. Our mission at Thomas Johnson Middle
    School will be to provide an environment for our scholars that encourages them to “strive for
    academic excellence and be of service to their school and the community at-large”. We
    will continue to focus on developing our STEM program and ensuring that ALL of our scholars
    are College and Career Ready.

                                                                       My three major areas of focus for the upcoming school year are: Positive School Culture and
                                                                        Climate, Academic Excellence and Increasing Parental Engagement. I look forward to
                                                                        partnering with you! Thank you for your support of the staff and scholars at Thomas Johnson
                                                                        Middle School where we are “striving for excellence and exceeding expectations!”

                                                                        Sincerely,

                                                                        Derrell L. Owens
