Degrees and Certifications:

Jermaine Shakespeare

I am a graduate of Alabama A&M University and received my bachelor's degree in Secondary Education (Biology). I taught for 14 years in metro-Atlanta where I was Teacher of the Year in for the 2019-2020 school year. I got my Master's degree from Piedmont College in 2009, began an Educational Leadership certification program at Clark-Atlanta University, and am currently pursuing a second Master's degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Grand Canyon University. 

I am originally from Andalusia, my wife is from Dothan, and we have 3 college-aged kids: Jacksonville State, University, Alabama A&M University, and Birmingham-Southern University. When I'm not teaching I really enjoy running, reading, volunteering, hiking, and spending time alone.
