Hello Dutchtown Middle School Family!  I am extremely proud and humbled to serve as the 7th grade assistant principal. It is my belief that EVERY child, no matter their circumstances, can learn. Therefore, I consider it my duty and my calling to ensure that every child has the necessary tools to do so.  

    My educational journey began at Hamilton County High School (FL) teaching 10th grade literature and AP literature. In 2014, I continued my teaching career at Valdosta High School (GA) where I instructed students in International Baccalaureate (IB) Literature, Multicultural Literature, and American Literature. I also had the honor of leading as the English department chair. During my tenure at Valdosta High School, I was named the 2018 Teacher of the Year and the Valdosta City Schools’ District Teacher of the Year. Over the past couple of years, I have had the pleasure to assist teachers and students as an instructional coach working at the high school and middle school level; with most recently serving as the instructional and personalized learning lead for Austin Road Middle School. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and park hopping with my husband and two daughters.  

    Again, I am very eager to bring my experience and talents to the Dutchtown cluster and I look forward to working with each and every stakeholder. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at Jessica.whylly@henry.k12.ga.us. Let’s make this year AMAZING!
