Mr. Timothy Coughlin

Vice Principal

At DEOMS we strive to create an environment in which all members of our community can work collaboratively for the benefit of our students.  It is our goal to maintain open lines of communication between our students, parents, and support personnel.

My career in education has allowed me to serve in many different settings, and I hope to bring all my knowledge and experience into my role as the Vice Principal of David E. Owens Middle School.  Prior to this position, I was a teacher in Newark who eventually became a Math Coach/Master Teacher for the Newark Public Schools.

As an educational leader, I will continually work to develop strong professional relationships, identify areas in need of improvement, and reflect on ways to help students and teachers to achieve their full potential.  Through a committed team approach at David E. Owens Middle School, we will continue to build a strong sense of community and organizational arrangements helping to support and sustain an environment of excellence amongst staff and students.
