When the school district of Atlanta closed down for nearly three years, a new, private school was built on the site.
Students, teachers, parents, and other local residents were invited to live there.
“We didn’t have to be in the dark for the last two years,” says Jamee Williams, a mother of two, who opened her own private school in January 2017.
“There were just so many reasons for me to start my own school,” she says. “
“One of them was because I have a sister who is a teacher. “
There were just so many reasons for me to start my own school,” she says.
“One of them was because I have a sister who is a teacher.
I wanted to be able to teach her.
And she taught me a lot.”
Today, the Williamses own a school in Georgia and are looking to open one in the city of Atlanta.
The idea behind the school, which opened in April, was simple: “We’re trying to make sure that students can go to school when they’re needed.”
For a school that’s been closed for a year, it was a huge leap.
“When you go through something like this, you just want to go home and be home with your family,” says Williams.
But not everyone has the same idea about what kind of school to open.
Some of the students at the Williams school are upset with the school.
One of the kids is upset that he is the only one who’s been able to make it through the closure, and he’s not sure how to make ends meet.
Others are hopeful that they’ll have a better idea of what to expect from their school after the school is back open.
“They want to know what they’re going to have to do in order to get better grades, or what their grades will be,” says a teacher at the school who asked to remain anonymous.
Even if it’s only for a few months, the students are optimistic.
While they don’t know for sure how they’re doing, one of the teachers says, “I can say that this is a new start.
It’s really an opportunity to learn a lot about yourself and how you can be better.”
