I am Jason McDaniel, your new Assistant Principal at Venetia Vikings Elementary School of the Medical Arts. I am elated to welcome you to the 2021 – 2022 school year. I am born and raised in Duval County on Jacksonville’s westside. I come to Venetia from Chimney Lakes Elementary School, where I was a highly effective Math and Science teacher. While I am new to administration, I bring a wealth of knowledge to the position in all areas of education. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education from the University of North Florida and then went on to receive my Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of West Florida. I am currently enrolled in Liberty University pursuing a Doctor of Education (Ed. D) degree in Educational Leadership.
As your new assistant principal, it is my job to be a leader in continuing the mission and vision of our beloved Venetia Vikings Elementary School. I am committed to ensuring that each student receives the very best academic and social support with the hope that they may become a productive and model citizen. With this enthusiasm, I will forge ahead and continue to grow Viking leaders to be respectable and moral members of our outstanding community.
My philosophy on leadership does not concern itself with positions, titles, or power. My philosophy only focuses on one life influencing the balance or unbalance of another. At Venetia Elementary School of the Arts, we will strive to provide that balance to your children educationally and emotionally so that they may be the best version of themselves now and in all future endeavors.
I truly believe that together we can encourage, inspire, and support our future leaders to instill pride, dedication, and commitment to succeed in a safe and nurturing learning environment.
I look forward to having an amazing year 2021 – 2022 school year! Let's Go Vikings!!
Your Assistant Principal
Jason L. Mcdaniel
