Hello OWLs, my name is Deonta Gail, I am your Assistant Principal here at Richmond Virtual Academy. I am a 2007 graduate of Virginia State University, where I received my BS in Business Marketing and in 2019, I became a graduate of Regent University where I received my Master’s in Education Leadership. I started my educational career in 2010 as a career switcher, switching from a finance career. I spent my first nine years as a special education teacher and have spent the last two years in educational leadership as a Dean of Students. I hope you are just as excited as I am to be an RVA OWL because this year is definitely going to be a HOOT!!!
