  • April Rembert-Thomas began her career in education after completing her studies at the University of Mississippi where she received a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in English. She has over 15 years of experience in education with the last five as a Graduation Coach, Department Chair and SST in Fulton County Schools. After graduating from college, she began her teaching career in Jackson, Mississippi. While at Lanier High School and later at Virginia College she served as Instructor of English Literature , English Compostion/Grammar and Remedial Mathmatics. During her time in the Jackson Public School district she served also as assistant coach for Track/Field and Tennis. In 2006, after relocating to Atlanta, Georgia she accepted a teaching position in Dunwoody, Georgia and later transferred to the Clayton County School District where she served as teacher in both the middle school and high school for five years. In an effort to not only challenge academically, she felt it necessary to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own garden of knowledge. This led to her enrolling and receiving her Masters of Education and Doctor of Educational Leadership degrees from Argosy University. Outside of the classroom she was actively involved with additional tutorial and literacy coaching. In 2015, she joined the staff at Paul D. West as Graduation Coach, School Support Team (SST) member and 504 Chair. These multiple duties required her to work with the leadership team to help develop, track and maintain tools for student progress, intervention as needed and incentives for student achievements. Dr. Thomas believes that the goal of education is to enrich the lives of students while producing articulate, expressive thinkers and lifelong learners; who will be socially responsible, resilient and active citizens in the world. Along with her two sons, Jerry and Paxn,and daughter Brooklyn, Dr. Thomas is honored to have the opportunity to serve and be a part of the Paul D. West family as the new Assistant Principal.
