Welcome to Our New Administration!

Welcome to Our New Administration!
WELCOME ABOARD to Mrs. Chanel Woods who will serve as the new Principal at BTW effective July 1st. A graduate of Norfolk State University and Old Dominion University, Mrs. Woods comes to BTW with 21 years of experience with Suffolk Public Schools, 16 of those years successfully serving in administration at Mack Benn, Jr. Elementary,
Driver Elementary and Nansemond Parkway Elementary. Mrs. Woods specializes in building learning communities with a strong and positive culture and climate in order to best serve students and develop strong teacher leaders.

Mrs. Woods is excited about getting started and growing BTW into a successful learning community, grooming our leaders of tomorrow. 😁

"Over 20 years ago, I was once asked if a Boss and Leader are one in the same. When asked back then I responded, "Yes." However, with what I have studied and come to learn over my career in education is that Bosses say “Go” but true Leaders say “Let’s Go!”
That’s the motto Booker T. Washington’s newest Assistant Principal strives to lead by and will continue to do so. Mrs. Brock comes to BTW as an instructional leader who has a data-driven mindset and passion for building teacher capacity in order to promote both teachers and students alike. Since coming aboard with Suffolk Public Schools, Mrs. Brock has served as a teacher at Mack Benn Jr. Elementary and Academic Coach for the past three years at Creekside Elementary School. Prior to joining Suffolk Public Schools, Mrs. Brock spent 15 years with Norfolk Public Schools serving as a Mentor, Classroom Teacher, Math Lead Teacher, Instructional Specialist, Assistant Principal, and Principal.  She earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Norfolk State University and is currently pursuing her Doctoral Degree at Virginia Tech University. 

Mrs. Brock is overjoyed with this new opportunity at Booker T. and can’t wait to meet the staff, parents, students, and community stakeholders.  Her goal is to be the leader who will inspire, coach, teach, build capacity, and of course say, “Let’s Go BTW!” 😁
