Aimee Anglin serves as Assistant Head of School of E.A. Young Academy where she not only leads an amazing group of educators to fulfill the mission of meeting the needs of gifted and high ability scholars but also focuses on operations, finance and admissions. While Ms. Anglin’s inner Type A personality has thrived at E.A. Young Academy with the organizational and management duties, her true mission is to connect with the scholars, faculty and families of Young Academy. As Lolly Daskal says, “Leaders aren’t great because they have power, but because they can empower others.” This quote is exactly the crux of Ms. Anglin’s beliefs on education – relationships and trust are key components of education. Watching the light bulb go on when a scholar understands a complex subject, observing kindergartners applying Newton’s Laws of Motion on the playground, committing to this population of underserved students and meeting the needs of the entire family unit has fulfilled her career aspirations more than she could have ever imagined.

 

Upon earning an English degree, with a minor in Communications, from Cleveland State University, Ms. Anglin began her decade long career in the legal field. Her legal career took form within two large international law firms where she specialized in Labor & Employment, Corporate Acquisitions and Intellectual Property law. Ms. Anglin gained valuable organizational skills and project management experience working with attorneys who argued suits with multi million dollar judgments. After starting her family and raising 2 children, she realized she wanted to change the trajectory of her career so she left the legal field and entered the arena of education.

 

Ms. Anglin’s career in education began with developing a curriculum for a local preschool program. She went on to spend several years in the classroom where she taught a variety of age levels at a private preschool that aligned with her philosophy of combining play based theories with academics. Through her time in the classroom, Ms. Anglin gained insight into early elementary behaviors that she has applied throughout her career. She learned to observe rather than act, listen rather than speak and model rather than operate. These are the basic tenants of an educator. Maria Montessori says, “never do for a child what they can do for themselves.” Do not rob children of the opportunity to learn on their own. Educators are guides while the students are the performers. Ms. Anglin later joined the administration team of that preschool and began her career in school administration.
