Hello Trevilians Families,

I am Mr. Black, and I am proud to be your principal here at TES!  I am entering my 9th year here as principal, and I know that this year is going to be the best one yet!  I look forward to working with all of our students and families throughout the 2023-24 school year.

I am entering my 29th year in education.  After graduating from Grove City College in Pennsylvania, I began my teaching career as a 6th-grade teacher right here at TES!  I then spent the next 11 years as a 6th-grade English and math teacher at LCMS.  While I was there, I earned my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from UVA and my Educational Leadership degree from VCU.  I then left Louisa to begin my career as an administrator, and I have been an assistant principal and principal for the past 16 years.

Besides being an educator, I am the proud father of two girls–Margaret, who just graduated from college, and Caroline, who is pursuing a degree in nursing.  I live in Goochland with my wife, who is a counselor, and our two dogs, Max and Sadie.

When I am not working at TES, I like to exercise, play sports, and watch sports.  If you ever come into my office, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of sports, and some of my favorite teams are the New York Yankees, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Georgia Bulldogs!

I look forward to getting to know all of you this year.  If there is anything I can do to help you have a successful year at TES, please let me know!

EJ Allen
