Kamilah Bowers, MEd, Principal

Mrs. Bowers joins Park Place with extensive experience teaching in a variety of school settings.  She is currently working toward her Doctorate of Ministry in Christian Leadership and Renewal.  She is excited about the opportunity to lead Park Place School and its students – and dares us to DREAM – to imagine and fulfill the many opportunities that God has created for us to achieve.  Mrs. Bowers welcomes each parent, as well, to the Park Place School Family, and encourages everyone to stop in and get acquainted!

Brenda Garrett, MEd, Operations Manager

Ms. Garrett has worked with children and their families for more than 25 years, through social work, work readiness and education.  For the past 14 years, she served as Executive Director for KidsPriorityOne, and has been offering training in Positive Discipline and Trauma Informed care for the past 8 years, working with human services staff and educators, and teaches parenting classes, as well.  She is excited to be a part of the Park Place School team.  In her heart, she believes that God has given each one of us meaningful gifts – and that when we discover – develop – and share them – we all are blessed.  Our greatest joys in life come in lifting others and in joining our talents one with another.
