Dr. Sandye Poitier Johnson, renowned educator with a career that spans four decades, retired principal of Thurgood Marshall Academy, former adjunct professor at City College and adjunct professor at Kean College, New Jersey, knows what it takes to turn a school around.
She did what it takes to make a Title I public school an International Baccalaureate World School, the first NY Title I school to achieve this status.
Currently the Executive Director of the Harlem Renaissance Education Pipeline, Dr. Johnson is widely credited with raising the academic standards and stature of the Thurgood Marshall Academy for Learning and Social Change in Harlem.
She has what it takes to continue the fight for quality education. And she’s won accolades to prove it throughout her career—from the National Council of Negro Women’s Mary McLeod Bethune Award and the Dr. Martin Luther King Measure of a Woman Award to the Time Warner Principal of Excellence Award and more.
