Meet the Assistant Principal of Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School

  • My name is Dannon T. Bedwell and I am excited to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, where YOU MATTER. I completed my undergraduate degree in Physical Education at The University of Alabama, my Masters and Education Specialist degrees at The University of West Alabama and am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Rural Education. I have a total of 9 years of experience which includes: 6 years as the Physical Education teacher at Northington Elementary and 3 years as the Physical Education teacher at Central Elementary.


    I am married to the love of my life, Ashley Bedwell, who is an employee of the Tuscaloosa County School System. We have two beautiful children: Jace (7) and Jade (2). As a family, we love to travel to Disney as often as we can, cook together, and play board games.


    Together, we can ensure that every scholar has opportunities to excel, while at the same time, helping them build positive relationships that will last a lifetime. I am extremely blessed to be a part of an amazing team of teachers, staff, students, families, administrators and community partners who believe that while “growing together” we can all SOAR! We will continue to make sure we are doing things the MLK WAY, with Intelligence, Character, and Perseverance.
