Ms. Jamie Abd-Shakur

Greetings! I am Jamie Shakur, a native of Brooklyn, New York, and a mother of two beautiful daughters. North Carolina has been my home since 2014, and I love it here. I have been in the field of Education since 2001, with a start in the NYC Public School System. I have an extensive background in Dance and Dance Education, serving grades K-12 in public and private school settings. I hold an MA in Dance Education from New York University and am currently an NC Principal Fellow pursuing a master’s degree in School Administration from North Carolina Central University. Besides producing major dance productions, throughout my career, I have served as a cooperative teacher, created, and developed family-oriented and scholarly programs, presented scholarly research, participated as a contributing author, and more. I am both proud and excited about this shift in my career. I am a lifelong learner, and one of my goals is to enhance my experience as an educational leader while affecting positive change. It is an honor and privilege to join Vandora Springs Elementary School as an Administrative Intern. I look forward to learning and collaborating with you all while supporting you however I can.
