Exec Board 2020

Welcome to Garland Area Alliance of Black School Educators!

We as educators must build positive self image, good thinking skills, strong positive attitudes toward intellectual competition and high expectation of succeeding. It is up to us to provide them with an educational environment that strengthens and nurtures.

GAABSE Statement of Events

To My GAABSE Family,

The mission of the Garland Area Alliance of Black School Educators is to improve educational opportunities for all students, with a focus on African American students. Our organization has done a commendable job and I have no doubt that we will continue uplift our community. We have been faced with the challenge of fulfilling our mission amidst a pandemic, and are now bearing witness to continued systemic racial bias and disparity in America. On Monday, May 25, 2020, Minneapolis police officers caused the death of George Floyd, a forty-six-year-old African American man, after being handcuffed, pinned to the ground with a knee on his neck. It is occurrences such as this that are a detriment to our community and adversely impact the students we serve: socially, emotionally and educationally.

Garland Area Alliance of Black School Educators must always mobilize and raise our collective voices to support, educate, and invoke change to combat injustice. We must labor to end inequalities that impact the African American Community. We must persist in our composure and continue to inspire the young minds that we influence.

The call to action is NOW and GAABSE will answer with the following initiatives:

  • GAABSE will participate in the TABSE Virtual Panel Discussion “ How Can We Help Our Students Breathe” - Saturday, June 6,th at 10 AM
  • GAABSE Community Check-In Members Only Zoom Meeting – Tuesday, June 9th at 6:00 PM
  • GAABSE Townhall – The Digital Racial Divide – What Now? – Thursday, June 25th at 6:00 PM
  • Summer Mentoring – Diamonds & Pearls – Gents Mentoring Program
  • Summer Professional Development to address the changing educational environment

This is just another step to continue the unfinished legacy of our founders. I leave you with words of Frederick Douglas, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

In your service,

Rhonda M. Williams
GAABSE President
