Agenoria Spearman Paschal the great leader!
Black history month is celebrated in February . We celebrate black history month and remember all outstanding African American who have done great for America and all their achievements. Agenoria Spearman Paschal was born July 25, 1923 and she passed away on March 17, 2015. She was a native of Tallahassee, Florida. She served over 40 years at Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) . She followed her grandmother's steps who was an outstanding teacher in the 1800's. Agenoria is a great influence on why we celebrate black history month.
Without a doubt Agenoria was a marvelous woman who helped shape Florida. Agenoria served as a teacher, assistant principal, and director for Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) for more than 40 years until she retired. Not to mention, Agenoria obtained the Little School House Award when she served as principal at Lorah Park Elementary. Besides when she was a director she was honored by the Instituto De Cultura Hispanic of Miami Florida and she received an award from the Hispanic Teachers of Dade County Schools. Agenoria has blessed Florida with her hard work.
In other words, Agenoria was a very kind and nice person who tried to help her community. It takes courage to serve as a teacher, assistant principal, and director for over 40 years and having to take care of her family and helping her community. This seems like something someone would probably not do. In that case, this is why we celebrate black history month to honor all these great people.
Briefly to conclude, Agenoria Spearman Paschal was a great person who was always there for the community and followed her grandmother's steps who was also an outstanding teacher in the 1800’s.
