Mrs. Peta-Gaye Williams
(Assistant Principal)

Peta-Gaye Williams was born in Jamaica, West Indies and migrated to the United States when she was nine years old. She has always enjoyed schooling but didn’t really show her potential until high school when her Guidance Counselor placed her in an Advanced Placement English course for her to show her full potential. Since then she has loved learning and achieved a 4.0 in secondary and post secondary studies. She has been in education for the past seventeen years. Her high school al ma mata is Harry S Truman, located in the Bronx so she is very familiar with public education. To this end she wanted to work in a similar setting as where she received her secondary education.

Mrs. Williams continued to foster her love of learning in higher education. She earned her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English Education and Africana Studies at SUNY Binghamton, a Master in English Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, a Master in Administration and Supervision at Mercy College and is currently working on her PHD in Educational Leadership. Mrs. Williams had been working in the Bronx in various roles in education: Humanities (English and Social Studies) Teacher in Middle school grades 6 through 8 for 6 years, Humanities Kindergarten – Eighth grade Staff Developer for 2 years, High School Assistant Principal for 9 years.

Mrs. Williams likes to work with the young adults because she loves the process of learning. She believes every child can be educated; just that all have different paths for learning. Also, she firmly believes in character education shaping children as personality dictates a lot about a person’s aspiration. She loves to read and fosters that in her twin daughters as well.

Watch your thoughts, they become words.

Watch your words, they become actions.

Watch your actions, they become habits.

Watch your habits, they become character.

Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
