Meet the staff at Micah Children's Academy

ADMINISTRATION

Theresa LePore
Director

Theresa received her Bachelor of Science at the University of Montevallo (Montevallo, Alabama) with a degree in Hearing Impaired Education. Certified to teach K-12, she worked in the Jefferson County School system where she served children in all age groups. She worked with children in an Early Intervention program, elementary and middle schools, and even in a high school vocational program. After that experience, Theresa decided to change careers because of all the “red tape” associated with special education and enter another educational arena.
One summer, Theresa served as a Pre-K teacher and she simply loved it. She felt that the possibilities were endless with the younger age group. She felt that she was laying a foundation for the love of learning instead of trying to repair it. After moving to Nashville, she was the director of Woodbine Community Center’s Summer Camp and then worked for the State of TN’s Treasury Department. It was then that she discovered that she missed teaching! That was over 15 years ago and now Theresa is applying her experience and skill by leading the Academy administrative staff. Theresa is also a mother of 3 children. Theresa spends her “free” time volunteering and sitting on various committees and boards at her children’s schools.
