A Message from Mr. James Rawls, Principal Principal Rawls

Dear Daniell Family,

It is both an honor and a privilege to be appointed as the new principal of J.J. Daniell Middle School.  I am truly excited about continuing the rich tradition and presence Daniell Middle School has held in Northeast Cobb and the Sprayberry Cluster over the last 50+ years.  While I know that following a dynamic leader such as David Nelson will be difficult, I am confident that Daniell will continue to excel by holding steadfast to our core values of Leadership, Achievement, and Commitment.  These core values, accompanied with the strong support of the Daniell community will ensure that Daniell remains one of the best middle schools in Cobb County to Teach, Lead, and Learn.

I am originally from Savannah, Georgia, and my family moved to Metro Atlanta when I was in elementary school.  Upon graduating from high school, I enlisted in the United States Army where I served in the Reserves for over 14 years.  I received my B.A. and M.Ed. from Armstrong State University (currently Georgia Southern University) and my Ed. S from Argosy University in Educational Leadership.  I have spent all of my 14 years in education in the middle grades serving as a teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal in Savannah-Chatham, Atlanta Public, and Cobb County Schools respectively.  Now, it is with great enthusiasm that I serve the students, staff, and community of Daniell Middle School for the foreseeable future.

My first priorities are to develop a learning agenda and to build strong relationships with staff, students, families, and the surrounding Daniell community.  Over the summer, I plan to meet with parents, teachers and staff, students, and community stakeholders to learn more about the Daniell family and strengthen our collaborative effort to ensure that Daniell remains a school where all students feel safe and are fully prepared for success in high school and beyond.  I look forward to meeting everyone soon and being a part of the Daniell Family. 


James Rawls
