Dr. Richard L. Whitehead

Hello, I am the current Assistant Principal at Brooke Middle School and my office is located on the second floor of the building. Although my duties vary greatly day-by-day, I primarily oversee the fifth and sixth grade students.

My career started in Brooke County at Follansbee Middle where I taught 6th grade social studies. I always had a passion for social studies because it provides students with the background information for why things happened in the past, the results of those decisions, and its impact on the future. In August 2015, I started my administrative role at WMS as an assistant principal and I am currently in my fifth year as an administrator.
