Who is Nancy
Founder of TNT Academy
I was born and raised in the Atlanta area and continue to live in the same general area. I obtained Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Chemistry at North Georgia College in Dahlonega, GA. I obtained my Master of Science degree in Science Education while in Virginia. I just completed courses to for an MS in Educational Leadership and Supervision.
My career in public school started and ended in Gwinnett County. I served in a number of middle and high schools. In between public school teaching stints, I taught at private schools (Brandon Hall School) and Christian schools (Mount Carmel Christian). I also taught with the Masters and Artios Academies. I have tutored throughout my career. My career of teaching has spanned 34 years to this point in time.
I decided to form TNT Academy for those students that need a one on one or small group setting. It also meets the needs of those students that do not like to listen to lectures, but like some hands on labs and learning. TNT also meets the need of those students that do not like to start a class at 7:30 am. Older students can work and come to school or pursue other activities of team sports on traveling teams, etc. TNT captures the needs of public school students that are bored in a classroom and are starting to get into trouble.
