                                                                 Dr. Diamond Jack

    I am a native of Atlanta Georgia and a proud alumni of the Atlanta Public School system.   I began my education at Clark Atlanta University where I received a Bachelor’s in Middle Grades Mathematics and Science.  I received my Masters in Educational Leadership from University of West Georgia.  I have an Education Specialist in Teaching and Learning.  Lastly, I hold a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from Mercer University.

    I have 15 years of experience in urban education.  Six of those years were spent as a middle school science teacher.  Following my teaching experience, I served as a district level instructional coach for elementary and middle school mathematics and science for four years.  In this role I provided professional development to teachers, school level instructional coaches and principals in School Improvement Planning, mathematics and science instruction, and differentiation.  Currently, I am the founding principal of a PK-8 EL Education/STEM school.

    My first love is teaching!  I have experience of being an adjunct professor for a Ph.D. level course focusing on curriculum and instructional leadership.  I have also done seminars and presentations on Instructional Technology Leadership and STEM integration.

    My research interest include teacher-self efficacy, teacher leadership, urban education and adult learning theory.  I am a collaborative educator with a desire to professionally develop instructional leaders.  I enjoy strategic planning and seeing those plans in action to improve student performance.
