Mini’imah Shaheed, Principal of KIPP STRIVE Primary School 

While Mini’imah is mother to two sons—Isa (9) and Yanis (1)—she also gets to mother 500 amazing children at Georgia’s first KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) elementary school, unique in its dedication to staying with scholars through college graduation. And did we mention that Mini’imah was the founding school leader after completing a tour with Teach for America and time as an Assistant Principal in Gwinnett County? At home, Mini’imah’s family knows how to rock a board game or two, and they love exploring Atlanta’s diverse cuisine.

Proud Moment: A self-proclaimed introvert, Mini’imah’s motherhood journey has stretched her to meet the needs of the two young men she and her husband are raising—who happen to love hugs, kisses, and tickle parties. “My children have taught me the active definition of sacrifice. They have been my greatest teachers.”

Words of Wisdom: Look for ways where work and life overlap, and take advantage of them. “It is incredibly helpful that work and home intersect in my family. It helps me to stay balanced and keep track of Isa’s extracurricular activities, and on the drive home we get to talk about our day at school.”
