Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Jennifer Whitt and I am honored to serve you and your child as the new principal of Sparkman Middle School. I have been either a student, parent, or educator in the Sparkman family of schools for over 39 years. Twenty of those years have been spent as a teacher, coach, or administrator at Sparkman Middle School. My life and career experiences provide me with a unique understanding of the people and places that make our community special.

    We are blessed to have faculty and staff who are incredibly invested in our school. They truly go above and beyond on a daily basis and I am continually amazed at their dedication and love for our students. Collectively, we are strong, innovative, and fearless in the pursuit of providing students with opportunities for growth and achievement.

    We will continue to build on Mr. O’Rear’s legacy of relentlessly striving to equip students and teachers with the tools and resources they need to be successful in the classroom and in life. I look forward to working with an outstanding team of educators, students, and parents to create a place where kids want to come to school and teachers want to come to work.

    We have many new and exciting changes in the works for the upcoming school year. If you’ve driven by campus lately, you’ve probably noticed all of the construction taking place. We will likely experience some growing pains during this time; but I feel certain that the final product will be worth the struggles we encounter along the way.  I encourage you to reach out to me anytime with your questions and concerns. I look forward to working with you as a team to help your student have a successful school year!

    Jennifer H. Whitt
    Principal, Sparkman Middle School
