It is such an honor to introduce myself as the new Principal of Robinson Elementary School. My name is Phaedra Burks-Blake and I am a native of Grambling, Louisiana and a product of the Grambling State University Laboratory Schools. I attended Grambling State University, and received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Criminal Justice. I later obtained certification as a special education teacher and began my teaching career in Caddo Parish. I continued my education at Grambling State University and received a 2nd Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I served as a special education teacher for 8 years and a school administrator for 7 years. My first administrative assignment was at Homer Elementary School, but I’ve spent the last 4 years employed as the elementary Assistant Director at Lincoln Preparatory School in Grambling. I enjoy traveling, singing, and spending time with my family.
I truly believe that God has led me to “The Pride of the Southside” and I am thrilled to be joining this historic community and this amazing team of educators. I look forward to meeting my new FAMILY and can’t wait to see what God has in store for us this year!!!
