Hello. My name is Mildred Drake-Washington, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Dunbar staff!
I have a B.S. in Liberal Studies, a Master’s Degree in Education as well as an Ed.S in Educational Administration.
This is my eighth year of teaching 5th grade at Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary. I am proud to serve as the 5th grade team leader. Fifth grade is very exciting and important because we are preparing students for the middle school experience. I have had a passion for teaching ever since I first began teaching. I am aware of the important role a teacher plays in the academic and social development of my students, and I commit myself daily to this role. I have an open door policy where parents are always welcome to come in, observe or assist when available.
