Dr. Kendra Green is a compassionate and self-driven educator with over 20 years of school leadership experience. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Livingstone College and a Master of Education degree from the University of South Carolina. Dr. Green conducted extensive research on effective dropout prevention strategies and program implementations in the completion of her doctoral dissertation at Nova Southeastern University. She agrees with the abundance of literature on the power of instilling hope in at-risk students as a successful method for dropout prevention. Dr. Green is dedicated to bringing awareness to the adverse short-term effects of grade-retention on individual students, as well as the broader long-term economic effects on society.

Dr. Green’s passion for dropout prevention led her to pursue and earn certification as a National Dropout Prevention Specialist. The school data analyzed in Dr. Green’s field study revealed marked improvement in the number of students on track to graduate. This accomplishment is due in part to the effective implementation of evidence-based strategies from current dropout prevention literature and the district-wide prioritization of dropout prevention. Dr. Green embraces the need to build a greater sense of self-efficacy in students; therefore, she uses research-proven strategies and professional experiences to instill hope, and create realistic pathways to graduation.
