“Teachers are guardians of spaces that allow students to breathe and be curious and explore the world and be who they are without suffocation. Students deserve one place where they can rumble with vulnerability and their hearts can exhale.” – Dr. Brene Brown
Madeleine Dorsett is proud to serve as the School Leader of KIPP Intrepid Preparatory School. Before serving at Intrepid, she worked as an assistant principal at KIPP Generations Collegiate where she helped to support AP English and Social Studies teachers and monitored school culture for the 9th and 11th-grade students. During her time at KGC, she helped to facilitate 100% of students in each grade level taking college-level courses in English and Social Studies. While simultaneously growing the AP programming, the number of students passing AP exams and earning college credits more than doubled in several of the courses she helped to support. Mrs. Dorsett has taken her knowledge of what students need to be successful in high school and has brought it to the middle school level to ensure they are prepared for high school and beyond.
Before becoming an assistant principal, Mrs. Dorsett taught English I and English II, served as a grade-level chair and was as a Teach for America corps member at KIPP Sunnyside High School in Houston. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Spanish from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She also holds her Masters of Arts in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education. Outside of school, Mrs. Dorsett enjoys traveling around the world and going camping with her husband, Justin, and their three dogs.
