Greetings, Golden Bears Family

                My name is Alesha James. I am incredibly excited to serve as your new 7th grade Assistant Principal. It is my pleasure to help lead Sylvan Hills Middle School in providing students with the education and life skills required to cultivate change, be innovative, and develop confidence. 

                I am currently in my 19th year of education. Most recently I have worked as a Multi-tiered Support Specialist at Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy, where I have also served as a 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts teacher for 13 years.

                It takes a village. I look forward to building relationships with students, families, faculty & staff, as well as the community to partner in providing the best education, support, and resources to help every student achieve excellence in school and beyond. 

    Alesha D. James
