Tameka proudly serves as the Superintendent of our Georgia region. She began her teaching career in Atlanta Public Schools (APS) and is excited to be back serving where it all began!

After APS, Tameka continued her journey by moving to Harlem, NY where she accepted a role at one of New York City’s lowest-performing schools, joining Democracy Prep Public Schools’ founding turnaround staff. Within one year, she led 34 scholars from single-digit proficiency in literacy and math to 70% and 82%, respectively, posting the highest proficiency gains from one school year to the next in New York State history.

Tameka continued her journey of impact and growth when she was recruited to found testing grades at the third elementary campus with Uncommon Schools North Star Academies in Newark, NJ. During her tenure as principal, she consistently: led scholars to proficiency averages that outperformed the state and national averages by at least 30%; led staff to unprecedented rates of development and retention; created environments in which at least 90% of families felt they and their scholars were authentically seen, heard, loved, and challenged; and earned national honors for her leadership and impact on student culture, staff culture, student achievement, use of data, and effectiveness of professional development.

During the past several years, when the narrative surrounding education centered on learning loss and less-than-ideal student outcomes, Tameka’s school was one of few schools, out of thousands, that outperformed the non-economically disadvantaged students in the state in all subjects and grade levels. Furthermore, 91% of scholars scored in the approaching, proficient, or advanced range on the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment, one of the most rigorous state assessments in the country.

Tameka’s impact does not stop within school walls. She is also a revered adjunct professor with Relay Graduate School of Education – a groundbreaking graduate school of education with a proven track record of ensuring teachers and leaders have replicable pathways to increase their effectiveness; a content facilitator with Deloitte’s Courageous Principals programs – award-winning, global school leadership development programs that equip K-12 leaders, superintendents, principals, and assistant principals, with the necessary skills to become more effective school leaders and ensure the millions of students in our schools today can reach their full potential; and a founding board member for the Spiked Wellness Foundation – a non-profit organization that provides physical, mental, and financial wellness initiatives for underserved groups ages 12-18 and their families to improve and develop their mental and physical health and self-esteem. Tameka holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and a Master of Business Administration from Cornell University, an Advanced Professional Certificate in Advanced Education Leadership from Harvard University, and a Master of Arts in Education Leadership from Relay Graduate School of Education.

Tameka is held ten toes down by her amazing husband, Ade, as they raise her identical twin nieces, Talia and Nadia, and ensure that impact and excellence are exercised as verbs rather than nouns!
