Mrs. Denise Whitfield
My name is Denise Whitfield and I am excited to serve as Slocomb Middle School's principal. I have worked in the field of education for 29 years. Some of my past experiences include working as a speech language pathologist, special education teacher, director of a therapeutic school, school administrator, and special education coordinator for a school district. I have a bachelor's degree in Communication Science Disorders from the University of Montevallo, a master's degree in Special Education with emphasis on Autism and Emotional & Behavior Disorders from Auburn University, and certification in Educational Leadership from Troy University.
I am married to Wes Whitfield, agriscience teacher and baseball coach at Slocomb High School. We have four children. Caroline is married to Ralls and they have a beautiful daughter, Aubrey. Payne is a member of the U.S. Marine Corps. Grayson and Wesleigh Jane are in college. We all love animals, making one another laugh, and spending holidays together.
I am a lifelong learner. I enjoy school so much that I came out of retirement to be a part of Slocomb Middle School's team of educators. I take my responsiblity as a leader seriously. My mission is to support students, families, and teachers. I cannot wait to watch our students achieve and our community grow!
