Early Learning Specialist
Tameeka Walden joined the Newark Trust for Education as a Early Learning Specialist, for the Parent Child Home Program in August 2018.
Tameeka's motto is "Your Baby, is My Baby." She believes that we can give each of our families the fast track to education and make the transition easier for both parent and child.
Prior to joining the Trust, Tameeka worked in Telecommunications for 14 years and recently was a Family Support worker with the Healthy Families of Essex Home Visitation Program for 4 years. Through her work, Tameeka has been an advocate for parents, families, and her community. She has chaired PTA's and Parent Advocacy boards over the past 5 years with Charter and District Schools.
It is through her professional education and her personal experience as a mother that she believes "Education is transforming our lives in every way; and our children ARE OUR future! We owe it to them to give them the best opportunities we can."
