New Additions to Our Education Staff!

Our academic education staff continues to grow! We will interview soon for the new regional instructional technology staff members. We've also added three new full time teacher positions to our region. Those individuals will be named at the same time as the technology specialist.


In case you were wondering about who is who in academic education, here is a list that represents our organizational chart. Thanks to SW Principal Heather Vickers for making this list for us AND for reminding me how much I love SMORE for sending out information! This is so much faster than those newsletters I sent before...


Assistant Commissioner- Dr. L.C. Buster Evans

Deputy Director- Anthony Jenkins

Director- Steve Edwards

Area Principals- SW: Heather Vickers; SE: Jennifer Irvin; N: Cleo Griswould

Instructional Technology- TBA and SSPC- SW: Tonya Emmons; SE: Cheryl Spikes; N: Beverly Dorsey & Steve Smith, SOTC: Uzoma Anadu

Teacher Selfies Needed!

Wardens--most of your teachers haven't submitted their selfie to be used at the teacher conference. Some may be having trouble making the connect between a picture they have OUTSIDE of the facility and the ability to email it to me. Will you PLEASE snap a picture of each of your teachers with your phone and email or text it to me if you have not already done it? Thanks!!


Here's mine...from a year ago! I need one from everyone ! Wardens and DWs--you can send me one of you as well for our region meeting if you would like...
