I am originally from Trenton, New Jersey, however, I graduated from Westlake High school in Fulton County. I attended Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Georgia where I served as Student Body President during my senior year. Morris Brown is a very special place for me because it is also where I met my wife of 11 years Mrs. Dena Ausmore. I earned my teacher’s certification from Georgia State University and a Master's Degree in Education Leadership from Teachers College at Columbia University.
I have three children that all attend Henry County Public Schools. My sons, Jermaine Jr. and Noah attend Dutchtown Middle School and Mt. Carmel Elementary School respectively. My daughter Imani is a 10th-grade student at Dutchtown High School.
I believe that children are the sources of vitality for our county. Therefore, they represent our nation’s most precious resource. As a school leader, it is my responsibility to pursue the best interests of our nation by enriching the lives of young people. I understand that educators, in concert with a student's family, are responsible for providing the blueprints by which our they will construct their worldview. As such, building the social, emotional and academic capabilities of our students must be the daily mission of all educators. My success as a leader rests upon my ability to: provide safe and consistent learning environments; set and achieve high expectations for all stakeholders; act with credibility; and create a culture of shared responsibility for achieving the academic success for all students. I further believe that students learn best in environments of unconditional love, mutual respect, and trust.
