Dean of Students: Mr. Bruce Potts
Welcome to the home of the Spartans! As a proud Spartan teacher that helped open the Sossaman Middle School in 2013, Mr. Potts taught 7th grade Social Studies and coached for six years. Mr. Potts is extremely honored to be a part of the Sossaman Middle School administration team and as the Dean of Students, he oversees campus safety, student discipline and the After School Detention (ASD) program on the Spartan campus. Mr. Potts will strives to infuse the school motto of Respect and Accountability being firm, fair, and consistent with our students while instilling a growth mindset.
Mr. Potts was born in Ohio and upon moving to Arizona attended Mesa Public Schools, completed his Associated Degree in Criminal Justice before completing his Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education from Arizona State University and Master’s in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University.
As we pursue the idea of a growth mindset in our district, he will provide support for students academically, socially, and emotionally as we guide students through middle school and prepare them for the next chapter in their academic career.
“Look for the good in every situation. Seek the valuable lesson in every setback. Look for the solution for every problem. Think and talk continually about your goals.” – Brian Tracy
