25 Women in Leadership: Dr. Taunya Jenkins
August 26, 2021
Dr. Taunya Jenkins is the Executive Director at Quest Charter Academy.
Her whole career has been in education. “I really like to be a trendsetter, so in order to be able to do that you have to be in the front as the leader,” she said. “I think for me the main thing is you have to be focused, you have to be a good listener, and you have to be a good decision-maker.
She has always been one that has been interested in making sure students’ voices are heard and that they push them to get their full potential.
“That gets me up every day and motivates the heck out of me to be able to know that our students are moving to their full capacity,” she said “So that’s what drives me and motivates me to that excellence come out of them and to see the smiles on their faces when they have success.”
