  • Donte Tichenor FCPS names Tichenor as new principal

    FCPS Superintendent Manny Caulk has announced the selection of Donte Tichenor as principal at Booker T. Washington Elementary, effective July 1, 2020.

    Tichenor started his career as an admissions counselor and career transition specialist with the Job Corps program, helping teenagers and young adults prepare for the world of work. From there, he went to work as a case manager with a private mental health provider, supporting families in crisis. Feeling called to education, Tichenor joined FCPS in 2009, and since then has served as a substitute teacher, paraeducator, social studies teacher, behavior interventionist, and dean of students. In 2018, he was selected to lead the Informational Technology Academy at Bryan Station High School; and for the past year, he has served as the professional growth and effectiveness coach at Booker T. Washington Elementary. He holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Kentucky and two master’s degrees from Morehead State University, one in teaching and one in instructional leadership. 

    “Booker T. Washington’s students and school community will benefit from Donte’s deep connection to the community, his unwavering belief that all students can achieve at high levels, and his deep commitment to serving Booker T. Washington,” said Elementary Schools Chief Lisa Smith, who oversees the school. “He brings a varied background including being a social worker, behavior specialist, academy principal, and PGE coach at the elementary level.”
