    Dr. Tammy Staten-Daniels, MS Assistant Principal










    My name is Tammy Staten-Daniels, and I hail from South Louisiana, Cajun country. I have seven children who range in age from 20 to 34. My oldest son is a graduate of Morehouse College. My second and third sons are graduates of the University of West Georgia. My fourth son is a graduate of Clark-Atlanta University and Auburn University.  My fifth son is a graduate of Atlanta Technical College and is now pursuing another degree at Valdosta State University. My older daughter is a graduate of the Grambling State University, like her mom. My youngest child is a senior at Alabama State University. My two daughters-in-love are graduates of the University of West Georgia and Cornell University. I have two beautiful grand babies. Twins!!!!! Life is Good!!!!

    My educational journey has been a long and fruitful one. I have a Bachelor of Science in Speech and Theatre Education from Grambling State University, a Master of Arts in Theatre from the State University of New York at Albany, a Specialist in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University, and a Doctorate in Education from Walden University. I feel like I have been in school forever. However, my educational endeavors have opened many doors for me and added much to my life.

    Thirty-four years ago, I began my career as an educator in Henry County. I taught English and theatre for 14 years at Eagle’s Landing High School. I then moved to Dutchtown High School where I was Instructional Lead Teacher for three years and assistant principal for five years. I then moved to Luella High School where I was assistant principal for 11 years.

    I am elated to be an assistant principal at EXCEL Academy. I love children, and I want to help them to reach the next level in their educational pursuits. It is my desire to work with students, parents, teachers, administration, and all other stakeholders to ensure that each student at EXCEL Academy receives the quality education he or she deserves.

    It is my belief that it is every student’s inalienable right to acquire a quality education so that he or she may have an opportunity to pursue his or her aspirations and realize his or her possibilities. In order for this to materialize, students must have teachers who are passionate, industrious, committed, well educated, and well equipped to handle the intellectual, inquisitive, demanding students of the 21st Century. Furthermore, students play a vital role in their acquisition of knowledge because they must have a desire to learn, the wherewithal to process the information they are exposed to, the initiative to ask questions when they do not understand the concepts, and the perseverance to remain with a task or concept until comprehension and mastery are achieved.


    It is my aim and commitment to work consistently, intentionally, and feverishly with the phenomenal faculty and staff here at EXCEL Academy to help our students EXCEL Forward and Embrace Excellence.

    I eagerly await each student’s arrival, for I am looking forward to accompanying him or her on his or her educational journey at EXCEL Academy!!!
