    Mahalo! My name is Vontrice Derico, Special Education Teacher at Coretta Scott King Young Women's Leadership Academy.
    I am in my twelfth year as a teacher two has been with Atlanta Public Schools system. I received my undergraduate degree from Albany State University, master's degree from Troy University, specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University, and I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree from NorthCentral University. I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.
