Hi, I’m Leandra

On an average day, I can be found attempting to knit an oblong scarf, listening to comedy or true crime podcasts, reading historical narratives, or practicing yoga. Maybe all of the above at once! As the tagline says, I dream big, talk fast, and, above all else, think critically. From learning Python when I hadn’t taken a math class in 4 years to floundering and huffing my way to running 3 miles as an inexperienced athlete, I push myself to try new things and figure out ways to succeed at failure— or, as some might call it, navigating teachable moments!

What I Do

Data Entry

Research and Writing

Intermediate French

Basic Python

Past Work Experiences

Certification Clerk at Georgia Professional Standards Commission
(January 2017- Present)
The Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GAPSC) was created from Title 20 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.). Title 20 assigned the GAPSC the responsibility for providing a regulatory system for certifying and classifying professional employees in public schools to ensure that an adequate public education for the citizens of Georgia be a primary obligation of the State.

In this position, I manage secure information, both digital and physical, while working within online database systems. After approximately one year of efficient and skilled work, I was given the opportunity to evaluate certification cases along with performing my regular clerk duties. Evaluating cases entailed following established regulations and procedures to both initially certify and re-certify Georgia’s educators. After seeing my eagerness to learn and attentiveness to reviewing Georgia’s teaching laws, the head of the Certification Division assigned me to a special project in which I researched the certification rules of other states in order to influence a change of Georgia’s policy for in-state teaching certificates.
