After graduating from Duke University, Dr. Rolandria Justice-Emenuga began her career as a middle school teacher in Newark, NJ. While she loved being in the classroom, she realized just how vital effective school leadership is to the success of the school and earned her Master’s in Educational Leadership from Seton Hall University to become an administrator. Her passion for educational leadership and combined with her entrepreneurial spirit caused her to relocate to Massachusetts where she became the founding principal of a charter school in New Bedford. Scholars in that school successfully outperformed the surrounding district schools, while also providing an inclusive environment centered around qualities such as service, integrity, and accountability. When she got married and began to have children, her life as a day-to-day school leader ended, but her desire to support them did not. She became a consultant/leadership coach and has partnered with several organizations, districts, and schools to create and facilitate high-quality leadership programs for school and teacher leaders. She recently completed her doctorate in educational leadership with the hopes of centering more Black, female voices in important school and educational conversations.
