Mr. Jeffrey B. Daughtry, Assistant Principal
Henry County School System, June 2010 - June 2011

Mr. Daughtry was briefly employed as an assistant principal at Woodland High School, Stockbridge, Georgia throughout 2010; however, voluntarily transferred  when a rewarding opportunity to accompany his son became available. As the sole assistant principal at Rock Spring Elementary School, Mr. Daughtry was instrumental in ensuring academic and disciplinary success for each student by maintaining a consistent classroom presence and often co-teaching mathematics courses while offering necessary independent tutorial instruction as appropriate to struggling students. Under his co-leadership, as predicted the school achieved Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) which initially posed an issue of concern prior to his arrival. He also worked diligently in collaboration with the school council and implemented an ambitious mentoring program known as “Dads R.O.C.K.” geared primarily towards increasing the presence of fathers at the school. In an exclusive interview with the Henry Daily Herald, he stated, “Studies have shown that involvement of a father, or a positive male role model, in the lives of children, has profound effects on them.” Unfortunately, personal career progression had inadvertently taken precedence over a deep-seated passion for classroom instruction and family; therefore, upon conclusion of the academic school year, he formally tendered his resignation as in the best interest of family, temporary transition out of administration was paramount.


Mr. Jeffrey B. Daughtry, Assistant Principal 
Henry County School System, June 2009 - June 2010

He supervised and evaluated approximately 23 teachers and over 450 assigned students under his immediate command.

Letter of Recommendation: Supervising Teacher -


As an avenue to a career in law enforcement coupled with the initial pursuit of a degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology, Mr. Daughtry was employed as a day-shift supervisor in retail loss prevention and security in Auburn, Washington. Immediately thereafter, he accepted employment with MultiCare Health System assigned as an officer at Tacoma General Hospital. At 23, he was promoted to Security Manager of a six-billion-dollar annual product producing Microsoft subcontract software manufacturing/distribution facility where he created and implemented all policies and procedures. As a direct result, the organization celebrated a reduction in internal theft over 98% within the first six months alone.

In addition, he also worked as an intern in the Probation department for the Pierce County Juvenile Court. Perhaps this position served as a vehicle into the education profession upon encountering countless children immersed in the criminal justice system at such an early influential age.
