Dr. Dionne Fears has been named the next principal of Fugett Middle School. She joins the West Chester Area School District after serving as an assistant principal for the last three years in the Upper Moreland School District in Montgomery County. Dr. Fears has been dedicated to the field of education for more than 18 years, working with students in various age groups from kindergarten through college level.

The power of relationships is what moved Dr. Fears to become an educator.

"As the child of an educator and one who appreciates and embraces every opportunity to make connections with students, I am inspired and motivated by the students and families I have and will connect with as an educator."

"I love the daily opportunity to support students that may not have the belief, courage, and resources to achieve their best," continued Dr. Fears. "For some students, this is the gift of education; for some, it may be the gift of direction; for some, it may be the gift of perseverance; and for others, it may be the gift of time."

What is Dr. Fears looking forward to the most as principal of Fugett Middle School?

"I am excited to bring my skills and experiences as an educational leader to Fugett Middle School as we work together with the families and extremely talented educators to 'educate and inspire our students to achieve their personal best.'"

Dr. Fears currently lives in Wilmington, Delaware. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, creative writing, listening to music, and spending time with her parents, niece and nephews, great-niece and nephew, and Yorkie puppy, Nova.
