BLACKGIRL INSPIRATION: SHE BECAME ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL IN THE SCHOOL SHE ONCE WORKED AS A JANITOR

A woman has become an exceptional example after she stunned many with her story of how she moved from being a janitor to an assistant principal in a school she once mopped.

As teachers and staff at her school, Istrouma Middle, prepare for school to start after vacation, assistant principal Pam Talbert could not be more excited.

According to WBRZ, the mother of three had a learning disability that had not been diagnosed but this did not stop her from achieving her dreams.

For someone who could not read or write, becoming an educator was nothing short of a miracle.

“Miracles happen and you are looking at a miracle. I am a miracle. I could not read and write. I was on a third-grade level,” she said.

Pam admitted her kids pushed her to greatness and forced her out of her comfort zone.

The dedicated assistant principal learned and read what her kids were learning and started to pick up a few things from their books.

Most times, when the kids returned from school they would tutor their mum.

Eventually, she managed to go back to school and earn both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Southern University.

‘‘It was very hard, but I persevered because I knew that it was important that I did that,” Pam added.

Even more inspiring, Pam and her son are headed to school to earn their PhDs from Southern University.

“Despite where you are coming from, or your background, your history or where you live… It is going to be alright if you persevere. If you try,” Talbert said
