Professional Learning Specialist
Ptosha Maclin M.A.
I proudly began my twenty-year journey in education as a Para-professional and served in the various positions of an Elementary Teacher, Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal and finally, Building Principal and Administrator. I earned a BA in Elementary Education from Austin Peay State University, a MA of Science from Walden University as a Reading and Math Specialist, and an MA of Science in Educational Leadership from the University of TN Martin.
As a district STEM Administrator, I was honored to lead two schools to STEM Designation awarded by the state. Both schools had a focus on integrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into the regular classroom curriculum. Students were immersed in extra-curricular activities such as Makerspace, Solar Sprint Cars, Coding and Robotics for which they were Regional Champions of the First Lego League Western TN Division. Other Accomplishments include completion of Battelle’s Innovative Leaders Institute, a member of TSIN’s STEM Redesignation Task Force, a Graduate of the Advanced Leadership Training for Assistant Principals and McRel’s Leadership Training.
My mission is to inspire generations of global citizens and equip them to be innovative and creative thinkers of the 21st Century. Excellence is not a skill, but an attitude.
