Adasina Philyaw, school leader at Cesar Chavez East, joined The Leona Group team in 2004 as an educator at The Academy for Business and Technology Elementary School. After eight years of teaching in Dearborn, on the outskirts of Detroit with a diverse population of K-5 students and staff, she joined the Department of Academic Support as a Title 1 Coordinator.
In order to equip her with the essential tools to serve our “at-promise” youth in the Detroit Metropolitan, she has earned a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and an Administrative Certification in Educational Supervision from Wayne State University.
Adasina Philyaw along with Javier Garibay, regional vice president, is ecstatic at the chance given to narrow the “opportunity gap” while building strong, reciprocal, growing and sustainable relationships with the community, parents, staff and students.
