Mrs. Jade Fleming, Assistant Principal

I am Jade Fleming and I am honored to be the Assistant Principal at James Monroe Elementary School. I am elated to join a community rich in love and high quality learning experiences for all students! It is my goal to support teachers, students and their families, along with community partners to foster an environment to meet the needs of all students both socially and academically. 

I come to you with over a decade of educational experience as an elementary teacher and leader in my hometown of Hampton, Virginia and in our Nation’s Capital, Washington, D.C. I attended Hampton University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in English Arts and Old Dominion University where I earned my master’s degree in PK-6 Curriculum and Instruction. Over the years I’ve taught 1st, 3rd and 5th grades, served as Vice Principal and also, Principal-in- Residence. I am overjoyed to be back in the Hampton Roads area and to be an EAGLE at THE James Monroe Elementary. 

Together, we will ensure that the James Monroe tradition of pride continues through teaming up for excellence each and everyday. All students deserve rigorous and robust educational experiences. Our team is anchored in positivity, productivity and intentionality to make James Monroe an excellent place for kids and adults to grow and thrive. 

As I learn THE James Monroe way, I am excited to get to know each and every person that makes this community magical. Please feel free to connect with me at any time via phone call or email. 

Cheers to a phenomenal year!

In  partnership, 

Ms. Jade Fleming
