Mrs. Kacheckia Dewitt

Greetings Rocket Families and Scholars:

My name is Kacheckia Dewitt, and I’m an Assistant Principal at East Lee Middle School. My lifelong educational journey has brought me Lee County Schools, and I’m excited to serve our families and scholars. You are the reason we’re here.

My passion for teaching and learning begins at home, where I am a military spouse and a mother of three. My husband, our village, and I strive to provide the very best for our children because they deserve it. However, my passion for giving children the best doesn't end at home. I bring it with me and extend it to every single student, family, and team member here at ELMS. We are learning and growing together, and our scholars have and will continue to do great things.

My journey as an educator has allowed me to see and experience unforgettable triumphs inside and outside the classroom. The data shows that our scholars and school grew last year. ELMS met the expected growth standards set by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, and we improved a letter grade. That was due to the hard-working and dedicated teachers at ELMS. As a student, I will never forget how my teachers made me feel. They inspired me to grow and achieve, and they built a network of support to ensure my success. I believe all students can learn and grow, so that belief drives me to collaborate with you to prioritize, inspire, and engage our scholars. I’m committed to excellence, and I support our efforts to be the best we can be daily for our students, ourselves, and our world. I’m here to help nurture connections between school, our families, and our communities in order to see our scholars achieve and grow. I’m excited to serve you for the 2023-2024 school year.

If you have questions or concerns or simply want to talk about how you can help us make a difference at our school through volunteer opportunities, please call 919-776-8441 ext. 1362 to talk to me.
