Ascension Public Schools announces the appointment of O'neil Robinson as Assistant Principal of Donaldsonville High School.
"Mr. Robinson has served in our district for a long time in many different ways. He brings a wealth of knowledge and a passion for student success to this new role," said Superintendent David Alexander.
A graduate of Donaldsonville High School, Robinson attended Southern University where he earned a bachelor's degree in computer science and mathematics. His desire to teach brought him to Lowery Middle School in 1995 as a non-certified eighth grade math teacher. While teaching, he earned an alternative certification in Secondary Mathematics in 1998. He also earned a master's degree in Supervision and Administration from Southern University in 2001.
In 2002, he transferred to Donaldsonville High and taught Geometry, Algebra I and Physics until being appointed Assistant Principal of Lowery Middle in 2006. After five years as an administrator, Robinson decided to return to the classroom at Donaldsonville High School.
Over the last six years, he has taught Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Advanced Math at DHS. He also served as a Mentor Teacher, Master Teacher, PLC Facilitator, Academic Coach for athletics, Head Bowling Coach, Substitute Bus Driver, Football Coach, Math Tutor, trained as an ACT Facilitator, and earned certification to teach AP Calculus.
“Thank you for allowing me this opportunity. You will not be disappointed. Donaldsonville High School is where I love everyone who walks through the door. The students know I love them, and I will support them in any and every endeavor,” said Robinson.
A first generation college graduate, Robinson is currently working on his doctoral degree. He and his wife, Calandra ("the love of my life"), are very active in the community. In addition to feeding the homeless every Thursday, Robinson is a part of Bright Futures, Refresher School, Joel Jones Community Male Chorus and Joel Jones Musical Makeover Choir.
