Hello, my name is Khadijat Yekeen and I am the 7th grade ELA resource room teacher at the middle school. This is my third year at Marion P. Thomas Charter School. I worked at the Marion P. Thomas High School for 2 years and moved to the middle school campus this year. I received a bachelor's degree in English Education at Montclair State University and also received my master's degree in Special Education at the same institution. My purpose at MPTCS is to educate our youth and show them that one of the means to success is taking part in a powerful and meaningful education. Hopefully, this will allow them to become morally correct citizens inside and outside the school and I ameager to be a part of their journey.
