Mr. Brian Coleman

My name is Brian Coleman, and I am honored & excited to be the new Principal at Jennie Dean Elementary school.  I am beginning up my 24th year in education. This is my first year in Manassas City Schools after working for 23 years in Prince William County Schools. I started my teaching career at Fred Lynn Middle for 10 years, 3 years at Saunders Middle as a teacher & Teacher on Administrative Assignment, one year at Rippon Middle as the Administrative intern, 8 years as the Assistant Principal at Potomac Middle and last year at Unity Braxton Middle.    

I was born in Washington D.C. and graduated from Mt. Vernon High school in Alexandria VA. I graduated from Wesley College in Dover, DE with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 1998 and received my M. Ed. in Education Leadership from George Mason University in 2008.

My wife and I have two smart, active boys ages 11 and 9 years old who love playing soccer, basketball, and video games. I believe that all students can be successful and with our great educators we can help them reach their full potential.   With hard work, dedication, and communication we can help all students reach their educational greatness here at Jennie Dean.
