She has written romantic suspense novels, is a former tax attorney, a daughter of two ministers, a scholar, and a recipient of more honors than we can count. She also happens to be House Minority Leader for the Georgia General Assembly and State Representative for the 84th District. Meet our new FOC, Friend of Cloverleaf, Stacey Abrams! Leader Abrams stopped by on Tuesday, December 4 to see our school; meet the teachers and students; and see what we are up to.
Cloverleaf Executive Director Susan Anderson, Ph.D., showed Leader Abrams around, and she got to have a chat with Miss Jen about studying overseas. Abrams is also an educator and a member of the Salzburg Global Fellowship, who has taught at Yale University and Spelman College, so she was interested to hear about the teaching techniques Miss Jen picked up during her time in New Zealand.
Leader Abrams got to see our students and teachers in action, with a look at Jen, Emily and Jessie’s classes. One of our students, Max, reached out to Abrams, wanting to know what she did and why she was visiting.
Max was excited to find out that a government representative came to see our school. We discovered that Leader Abrams shares our values and has a commitment to education and building community and displays a passion for making things better and improving lives.
We are always glad to make new friends and are grateful that Leader Abrams was able to spend some time with us at The Cloverleaf School.
Would you like to be a FOC or do you have a suggestion for a community leader to come visit us to help spread the good news about The Cloverleaf School? Let us know, right here in the comments section.
