Mr. Antoine London

Principal London Bio

Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me….

I have had the proud pleasure of serving the area of education for the past 13 years. I began my career as a Business Education Teacher in the city of Norfolk, Virginia.  For the first 7 years of my career I taught at the School of International Studies at Meadowbrook/Rosemont. Following my time as a business teacher and testing coordinator I became an Assistant Principal with Suffolk Public Schools. While working in Suffolk I had the pleasure of serving John F. Kennedy Middle School, Northern Shores Elementary School, and John Yeates Middle School. After 11 years of serving the Hampton Roads area, I was excited to have the opportunity to come back home to Richmond, Virginia.  This will be my second year as principal of Thomas Henderson Middle School and I am excited about having the opportunity to work with an incredible community to assure that Henderson Middle School is a great school. 

Thomas Henderson Middle School has a special place in my heart as it taught me some of the most impactful life skills that have shaped my young adulthood and guided me to a Career that I love. It is at Henderson where I honed my love of music and continue my studies in the band program. Learning to play the trumpet in the 4th grade at A. V. Norrell Elementary School built a foundation that Henderson Middle School continued to cultivate. With a solid foundation and the skills that I learned in RPS I was able to continue my study of music and earn a music scholarship to attend Norfolk State University. For two years I was a member of the Spartan Legion Marching Band. During my time in the Spartan Legion, I had the opportunity to travel to several cities in the United States and perform for thousands of people. It was a skill that I learned at Henderson Middle School that allowed me to have such a meaningful life experience.

The only thing more important than my career and dedication to education is my love of my family. My wife, my mom, and two children help me to stay grounded and keep me focused on the importance of working to create a great learning environment for our Northside families.

With your support and help I know that we can work together to assure that Henderson Middle School is a place where we can continue the legacy of being the PRIDE OF THE NORTHSIDE!  We are…..WARRIORS TODAY….LEADERS TOMORROW
