Mr. Donald Peake: Upstate Educator

peake     Upstate Parent's 2021 Ten Educators Who Make A Difference

Donald Peake doesn’t stick to regular office hours. As Assistant Principal at Hilcrest Middle School, he invests his time in students and their families when they need it, often outside of school. 

“I enjoyed going to school because of the adults that were there,” he said. “They were a positive influence on my life.”

In ninth grade, Peake decided that he wanted to be a math teacher, a role he fulfilled through part of his 22 years in education. Now, he strives to connect with his students, playing basketball with them, visiting with parents in their homes and more. 

“I show that I care by checking on as many as I can daily,” he said. “It’s to show them that I’m not all about discipline and show them that in school, these adults here care about you.”

Though Peake intended to stay in the classroom, other teachers and administrators encouraged him to lead in a new role.

“There are not too many role models like myself – Black, male role models in education,” he said. “Students need to see that I’m a normal person. I’m here. I’m approachable. I’m somebody you can emulate – and that’s all students. I want to be that person that they say, ‘I know him. He’s a good guy.’”
