Angie Bailey- Director of Arts
Mother, daughter, sister, friend, student and teacher are just a few words to describe Angie Bailey. Angie currently works as a full time Gifted-Advanced Language Arts Teacher at Norland Middle School. As an educator, she often places herself in the seat of her learners, understanding the various learning styles in any given classroom.
Angie has spent many years working with the non-profit sector first as an assistant director for the Adolescent Primary Pregnancy Prevention Learning Enrichment Program (APPLE-P) founded by Delta Sigma Theta, Miami Chapter. The purpose of the program was to work with at-risk inner city youth by providing them with strategies to raise their level of self-awareness, self -esteem and to make positive decisions.
Angie would continue her work in the non-profit sector through a pre-college outreach program at Florida Memorial University. She initially began working as a program coordinator for the Heads-Up Program, a program that targets at-risk minority females. She would later become the Director of pre-college outreach programs whereas; she was required to coordinate the Black Male College Explorers Program as well. The purpose of both programs was to expose at-risk minority students to higher education and other opportunities that were available to them once graduating high school.
It is evident that Angie’s passion is working with children, helping them to explore and achieve whatever it is that they desire. She believes that one should never allow obstacles to stand in their way when they are on a journey of growth.
