Assistant Principal's Message

Dr. Darlene Herbert  Assistant Principal

Dear Dresden Families,

It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of Dresden Elementary School. I am grateful and honored to join the Dresden Community. I look forward to working in partnership with Dr. Fields and the entire staff to continue the tradition of advocating for and providing our students and families with an educational experience where values, inclusion, and diversity are celebrated.
To this new role, I bring my 18 years of experience in education as both a teacher and an administrator. Over the past five years I have had the opportunity to grow as the Assistant Principal of Instruction at Rainbow Elementary. Before becoming an administrator, I was a classroom teacher, Early Intervention teacher, and an Academic Coach. I enjoy communicating and collaborating with teachers, parents, staff, and our community stakeholders.

Please know that I am committed to working alongside Dr. Fields as we continue to provide leadership and build a structure of collaborative relationships in the school and community so that all students have a variety of opportunities to succeed. Please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with me or stop by to discuss ways to make this year a success for our children. I look forward to meeting you all!


Dr. Darlene Herbert
