Jennifer Donnelly, Math Lab Teacher
I am very excited to be teaching in the Math Lab at Thomasville Height, and working with each of your students. I am passionate about helping your student grow in math and reach his/her fullest potential! Originally, I am from the Atlanta area and studied Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech. Since joining Teach for America in 2008, I have taught 5th through 7th grade math in both Atlanta and Newark. Outside of education, I love to cook, read, and travel anywhere and everywhere.
Desiree Roberts, Math Lab Paraprofessional
I was raised in the wonderful city of Atlanta, GA. I attended Grady High School. Before becoming a paraprofessional I graduated “Top of the Class” from Everest College in dental care. My passion has always been to motivate, uplift and teach children.
Christopher Winston, Math Lab Paraprofessional
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated from Westlake High School. Following high school I chose to attend Morehouse College on a Naval ROTC Scholarship in order to pursue a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. During my tenure I was able to spend time volunteering with an afterschool program in Vine City called Raising Expectations, which focused on tutoring middle school children in math and literature. I am very excited to be a part of this team and take on the next challenge in my life.

I am Kia King, a proud mother of two wonderful children. I am originally from Miami, FL but moved here to Atlanta. I grew up in a household of two educators where I grew to have a love for teaching. Some of the things that I enjoy doing are mentoring children and having a positive impact on every child that I touch. I am excited about being a part of the Thomasville family and look forward to making a difference.
Terrell Olagbegi, Math Lab Paraprofessional
A native of Atlanta, GA, Mr. Olagbegi (affectionately known as Mr. O) is the last of a dying breed. I graduated from Westlake High School and afterwards attended and graduated from Morehouse College. After college I travelled playing professional tennis, eventually becoming a professional coach. In addition to coaching, I was a substitute teacher in Clayton County for more than 4 years. Noticing how natural teaching came, it only made sense to get more involved. I believe that every student can be taught…you just have to know how to reach them where they are!
