According to Professor Robert D’Agostino, Esq. former Dean/CEO John Marshall Law School –  “Lisa-Fátimah’s energy, dedication, and creativity were characteristics that we depended upon greatly—and were never disappointed.  She is a natural leader, teacher and administrator.  Her statistical documentation was a crucial and mandatory element necessary in the early stages of our petition for national accreditation.

Under Ms. Fátimah’s leadership as Director, the Office of Admissions and Advancement proved to be the most efficient, organized and assertive divisions facilitating a year-round admissions policy.”   [JMLS received full American Bar Association approval 5 December 2009.]CEO Robert D’Agostino, Esq.

“There are many good teachers, some great teachers and a few exceptional teachers. Lisa Armorer is one of the exceptional teachers. Lisa has worked closely with my son in several different settings beginning in 2013. I first met Lisa at a very opportune time. My son was in the 8th grade, his last year at a small private school for children with dyslexia, and I was very concerned he was not ready for the next step, a big public high school. Lisa, the new Learning Specialist, began working with my son individually. She quickly determined in what areas he needed help, what specifically she could focus on and what she could do in the time available. Lisa put together a program that had a depth and breadth unlike anything I had seen. She used a variety of strategies, such as Reading Theater, “backwards decoding,” Kodaly rhythm syllables, public speaking techniques, and the Socratic Method. She used text from sources such as The New York Times and Investor’s Business Daily, and writers such as Gary Paulsen, Naomi Shihab Nye, Dr. Phil and Maya Angelou. She used news stories, features, poetry, short stories and even the Preamble of the Constitution. Most material was keyed to my son’s personal interests in sports, technology and the outdoors. Not only was her program individualized to his interests, it also took into account that his intellectual level was higher than his decoding and fluency skills. She didn’t teach down; she taught up. Equally important, Lisa boosted his confidence with her consistent and sincere mantra that he could achieve anything he set out to do. She introduced him to quotes about perseverance, courage and kindness from John F. Kennedy, Gandhi and Quincy Jones. What my son was able to accomplish in one semester with Lisa was truly impressive. We saw an improvement in his vocabulary and a greater willingness to read more difficult text. I wish only that Lisa had come to [my son’s private school years earlier].” Michelle M., Parent

Los Estudiantes de Profesora Lisa Fátimah a La Misión Católica de Nuestra Señora, Chamblee, Georgia, USA, Teaching English as a Second Language

Lisa Fátimah’s unique teaching methodology (The Lisa-Fátimah Holistic Language Teaching Model (TM) or “LFHLTM”), includes elements of Vygotsky and Krashen, while commanding a more holistic, culturally congruent approach (unlike traditional pedagogy  usually lauded within dominant foreign language scholarship).     AHLTM addresses cultural geography as well as the genetic legacy of language and axiology to ground students in the understanding of what is, was, and can be theirs . . .  [From the book “¡JAMBO! EN ESPAÑOL” by Lisa Fátimah Armorer]

Sra. Fátimah is particularly passionate about enriching the lives of girls, and all people who are dismayed, disenfranchised, disconnected, dyslexic, and descendants of the Trail-of-tears and transatlantic middle-passage diasporas.

Lisa Fátimah is determined to provide stimulating, educational enrichment activities that challenge and encourage ALL of our student-achievers to foster respectful, harmonious, bilingual, trilingual and multi-lingual alliances; and she utilizes multi-dimensional stimuli, individualized pacing, recitation, conversation, syntax development, art, drama, music, film and current events to motivate academically challenged and under-motivated students.
HERSTORY (vs. HIStory)  * A student of linguistics who understands diverse cultural nuances, social meanings and the contours of class within communiqué, Lisa-Fátimah began her early career in the editorial department at Psychology Today magazine, and converges 17  years in NGOs and the corporate world of print, broadcast media, publishing, fashion, technology, corporate law, patient advocacy, public affairs, policy development and community service.  Ms. Lisa Fátimah has taught the American and IB curriculum in English Language Development, ESOL and Spanish at private, public and independent schools, private organizations and law firms.
 A former law school administrator, Sra. Fátimah brings a wealth of experience into the classroom.  As a top five co-host candidate of CNN’s former televised town hall program “Talk Back Live,” Executive Producer and Voice of WRFG, 89.3 FM “People’s Calendar,” and a volunteer with WBAI, 99.5 FM Pacifica Radio New York, Lisa Fátimah was dubbed the “Voice of Atlanta” by fellow broadcasters.
Prior to starting Milán International School Scholars, Lisa Fátimah was recruited to chair the department of World Languages and join the leadership team.  At SMHS, Ms. Fátimah served as Spanish teacher and International/Media Club Sponsor.  
Under the leadership of Lisa Fátimah, The International Club at Stone Mountain High School published the “World’s Kitchen Cookbook.”   This comprehensive periodical offered a peek into the dining rooms and kitchens of the international club’s 19 student members from around the world, and into the dining rooms of our nobel peace prize award recipients, President Barack Obama and former President Jimmy Carter. 
First Lady Michelle Obama and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter submitted family recipes which are included in this international periodical filled with 220 pages of authentic cultural and intergenerational recipes, global proverbs, didactic and biographical data from around the world.   
What is unique about this cookbook is that it underscores  the value of:  empowerment via the kitchen table,  documenting family recipes and passing on traditions, the school as a true village, the commonality of local wisdom, bridging cultural gaps, and important international lessons taught by our students.  “The World’s Kitchen Cookbook” is a learning and teaching tool and believed to be the first of its kind to be published in Georgia and perhaps the nation.
According to Professor Robert D’Agostino, Esq. former Dean/CEO John Marshall Law School – Atlanta “Lisa-Fátimah’s energy, dedication, and creativity were characteristics that we depended upon greatly—and were never disappointed.  She is a natural leader, teacher and administrator.  Her statistical documentation was a crucial and mandatory element necessary in the early stages of our petition for national accreditation.
