How Janallie Toomer Makes Christian-Based Education Available For Students In Low-Income Areas

Education plays a key role in shaping children to become global leaders who possess the right mindset and skills to help them overcome challenges thrown at them in the future. Sadly, not all children have access to quality education. 

In hopes of making quality education more accessible to students, especially those from low-income areas, Janallie Toomer established Shepherd of God Christian Academy.

Janallie’s school has given numerous students a chance of learning the right values and how to navigate through real life.  

Providing More Opportunities For Learning 

Now operating for a decade, Janallie has big plans for Shepherd of God Christian Academy. 

“Iʼm going to open a vocational school for students with learning disabilities. Here, teachers will be set up in an environment where they can teach in a hands-on setting and provide students the detailed education they need,” she said. 

Janallie is aware that not everyone learns through the same approach. That’s why she’s eyeing to start a vocational school to help students who need a more hands-on and real-world approach to learn things. 

“It is my goal to teach the students at my school to have a growth mindset and to be persistent in pursuing their greatest potential. If something doesnʼt go their way, they need to learn how to rise above and find a plan B to persevere,” she said. 

Inspired By Family 

For Janallie, the life event that sent her down this path started when she became pregnant with her first child during her 11th year at Miami Southridge Senior High School. Due to this pregnancy, she had to stop school and continue her education via homeschool. 

At this point in her life, Janallie experienced being a teenage parent to her son who was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. His illness caused him to miss school and fall behind the other students in his grade level. 

“After I saw my son struggling and enduring much emotional turmoil at school, I decided to enroll him in private school. My husband and I were determined not to allow our son to become a part of the growing statistics of students with lifelong illnesses falling behind and dropping out,” Janallie said. 

This concept inspired Janellie to open a private school geared to help students from low-income areas achieve a Christian-based education. 

Janallie has come a long way since her 11th grade in high school. Now a proud wife and mother of three, her maternal instincts paved the way for students to receive quality Christian-based education without losing a fortune.
