    Meet Our Principal, Bobby Nevels


    My name is Bobby Nevels and I am the principal at Dr. Frederick Douglass Todd, Sr. Middle School. I would like to extend a special welcome to the new families joining Todd Middle School this year and welcome back all our returning families as well. I am truly thankful and extremely honored to be your principal.

    Our vision at Todd Middle School is we build lifelong leaders, innovators and positive contributors that believe EXCELLENCE is not only the goal, but the STANDARD! Our mission is to serve scholars by providing purposefully planned and targeted instruction, creating a culture where students thrive, surrounded by compassion, high expectations and a sense of urgency. We will ALWAYS put the best interests of students first and our belief is that all students can learn!

    Although this school year looks very different than any other year, our staff is dedicated to providing students with a highly engaging and interactive distance learning experience. To fully support student learning, it is extremely important for you, as the parent or guardian, to maintain a positive attitude towards distance learning each day and ensure that your child is logging into their classes every single day.

    Throughout the South Oak Cliff community, there is an incredible level of excitement as we make final preparations for the beginning of school this year. We have developed a strong educational program that addresses each child’s social, emotional and academic needs. We have created an educational environment that will engage the students in meaningful work so that they develop the critical skills necessary to become independent, responsible and productive scholars once they leave Todd Middle School.

    My hope for this school year is that all students grow to love Todd Middle School and view our campus as a learning environment that is positive, safe, warm and caring as well as a place to learn and grow.
