Using real-world examples infused with research and an evidence-based curriculum, Dr. Gettings inspires others to develop their purpose, build confidence, and believe in themselves.
Latrice has learned the value of setting goals, making clear plans, building relationships, and having resiliency as the first in her family to earn a doctorate in organizational leadership with an emphasis in special education. Latrice’s dedication, hard work, and determination to substantially impact education inspired her to obtain a BA and MA in early childhood education. Also, she received certificates in English as a Second Language (ELL) and gifted education and multiple awards and recognition for showing growth academically and having the highest scores in the district.
Earning a second master’s in educational administration and completing the doctoral program has proved an attitude and determination of providing a service to others. Latrice knows that education opens the path to understanding others’ views, perspectives, and beliefs. This outlook inspired her to teach, develop, and mentor students and teachers. She brings this commitment to education with her business as a consultant to empower others to achieve success.
