Educational Excellence Committee Chair
Angela Christie joined the ANCS governing board for the 2020-21 school year. She has two children at ANCS, Eleanor in 7th grade and Olive in Kindergarten.
Angela is on the faculty at Georgia State University, with experience in curriculum development, assessment, grant writing, and academic program development. She currently serves in an administrative role that focuses on issues of inequity, learning gaps, and obstacles to success based on socio-economic status. In the past, she served on the board at Inman Park Cooperative Preschool and on the ANCS PTCA Executive Committee for three years.
It is important being a part of a community of parents, neighbors, and educators who are mindful about facilitating an educational experience that not only develops an academically challenging curriculum, but also works to support programs that promote our children’s emotional and social growth. She believes in the value of experiential and project-based learning and the inclusion of Conscious Discipline in the academic space. The focus on community and how the community impacts those around us is also a compelling differentiation.
When she’s not keeping up with her kids or work projects, she enjoys cooking, telling her backyard chickens about her day, weaving large tapestries (that her husband would rather not hang on their walls), going for a run in beautiful Grant Park, and participating in local social activist groups and events.
