Summer Principals Academy
The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Demetrius Lancaster teaches 4th grade English Language Arts at William E. Doar, Jr. Public Charter School for the Performing Arts. Demetrius works with a team of educators that work to ensure that students are prepared for opportunities in selective high schools and college. In addition to teaching, Demetrius serves as the grade level chair through which he supports teachers in grades 3-5. He is passionate about implementing culturally responsive teaching pedagogy reflected in his recent publication in Perspectives In Urban Education entitled, “Countering the Narrative: A Layered Perspective on Supporting Black Males in Education.” Through SPA, Demetrius hopes to gain the foundational skillset that will make him a transformational school principal in Washington, DC where he can incorporate school-wide culturally responsive teaching pedagogy.
