“I take pride in using my skills to foster open communication, collaboration, and support. I am committed to issues of social justice. In 2000, I founded Positive Images Inc. (, whose mission was to expose students to academic and career opportunities.”

Nwagbaraocha trusts his educational versatility will enhance the school board as a whole,

“With administrative, teacher and, support team expertise, I bring a unique blend of skills in both administrative and teaching arena. My experience spans curriculum development, parent and student engagement, cultural awareness, preparing annual business and budget plans, and directing staff training initiatives.”
