KINGSTON – Born and raised in the Bronx with three sisters, Ms. Ware showed an early passion for education. She fondly recalls that as a child, her “dream” job was to become the New York City Schools Chancellor!
Ms. Ware began her career as a substitute paraprofessional in Harlem before taking on the role of a community associate. As a community associate, she expertly handled discipline, systems, and protocols in a Grade 6-12 school. Her passion for teaching then led her to elementary classrooms in Harlem and the Bronx, where she taught students in Grades 3-5.
Throughout her educational journey, Ms. Ware continually focused on developing her leadership skills. She served in various leadership roles, including as a chapter leader and on different school- and district-wide committees. She even spent time as her school’s union representative.
Determined to further her impact, Ms. Ware earned her master’s degree in Teaching at Mercy University. She followed this with dual certification as a School Building Leader (SBL) and School District Leader (SDL) through Hunter College.
Ms. Ware was drawn to Miller Middle School by what she sees as its potential for positive change and growth. She envisions shared leadership and coaching as essential components for success, drawing from her extensive experience working with teachers.
Outside of school, Ms. Ware centers her life around family and enjoys rotating home-cooked meals on Sundays with family and friends.
Ms. Ware is grateful for the warm welcome she has received from the Miller team so far. She is enthusiastic about embracing her new role and bringing her passion for education to the Miller community.
