Genene Y. Stallworth is a Central Florida native who was born and reared in Sanford, FL. Being the daughter of two educators, she chose to become an educator in 1993 because she wanted to “give back” to the school system from which she received such a quality education. Ms. Stallworth’s teaching philosophy includes believing that every child can learn given a nurturing and stimulating environment. Given that setting and educators who care, any child can experience value added to their existing knowledge base.
Genene received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration (with an emphasis on Accounting) from the University of Central Florida (U.C.F.) in 1988, and she completed coursed to earn her teaching certificate from this institution as well. She is a Lockheed Martin/U.C.F. Scholar who received her Master’s Degree in Middle School Mathematics in 2002. Ms. Stallworth traveled to Tallahassee, FL to serve on the Middle-School Item Writing and Response Analysis Team for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), and she was a part of the Gridded Adjudication Team.
Genene Y. Stallworth currently possesses a Florida Middle-Grades Mathematics teaching certificate. She taught in the Seminole County Public School system for 18 years, and during that time, her teaching practice evolved into one where she empowered students to learn mathematical rules, steps, and processes through the vehicle of music. She taught high-school credit courses to middle school students, and not only did music-n-math cause them to develop a more positive attitude toward mathematics, but some of them were also inspired to write their own songs, raps or chants to retain vital information. Genene was the 2003 Teacher of the Year for Millennium Middle School (Sanford, FL), and she was responsible for mentoring other teachers and encouraging them to use more technology-rich lessons for our 21st-Century Learners.
Recently, Genene changed careers and began to work at her church, Calvary Temple of Praise (Sanford, FL) as the Church Administrator. Besides fulfilling her duties as a Church Administrator and other leadership responsibilities, Ms. Stallworth teaches foundational Bible Truths to parishioners.
She is the proud mother of three beautiful daughters, Amber, Terra, and Erin Pearson, and she enjoys spending time with them at their home in Winter Springs, FL.
