What People are Saying About Luajuana’s Presentations:

"Friday morning, I must admit, I was not at all happy about the prospect of sitting through another day of inservice! But, having no choice in the matter, I got up, got dressed and showed up right in time for our first meeting of the day. To my surprise, we were all in for a VERY SPECIAL TREAT!! This was not going to be a normal meeting. We were privileged to have a former colleague, Luajuana Brasfield, speak to us! And speak she did....from the beginning, we were captivated by her bittersweet stories about what being an educator truly means. We laughed, we cried, we shared precious memories from days gone by and remembered special friends who helped mold Walker High School into a place where kids could achieve NO MATTER WHAT their circumstances.

I have thought about Luajuana's stories all weekend. She truly inspired me to follow in her footsteps and become a HOPE MENDER!! This is absolutely what she has always been! I was reminded of the reasons I love teaching. I was reminded of the power a teacher holds and how we can make a difference in a child's life by doing even the smallest deed. Luajuana, thank you so much for all you are, all you do, and all you have been to both students and teachers alike!" …
