Prudence Harris- Minton
Dr. Prudence Minton has over nineteen years of experience as a principal supervisor, senior executive, and instructional leader. Her educational career has been defined by a strong dedication to providing students with equitable and progressive opportunities. She was a member of the founding leadership team of a charter school in Newark, New Jersey, which educates students in grades Pre-K through 12. Dr. Minton was also a principal mentor for the state of New Jersey, where she assisted new school leaders in their development through leadership simulations and action research projects. She graduated from Spelman College with a B.A. in Economics, Brooklyn College with an M.A. in Math Education, Columbia University’s Teachers College with an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, and the University of Pennsylvania with an Ed.D. She currently works for WestEd as a professional learning designer and coach for the Educational Leadership and Systems Design Department. Prudence is excited and honored to be a founding member of Ikemba Educational Partners, LLC. Ikemba founders are a group of educators working on various projects since January 2019, but our backgrounds in urban education, particularly curriculum design, school founding, and political activism, go back much further. We believe Ikemba Educational Partners, LLC, can provide grassroots solutions to the most seemingly intractable problems in both education and social justice.
