Stallworth Educational Consulting Team (SECT), LLC is a company founded by Jacqueline Stallworth who has over eighteen years of educational experience. Because she has experience with both urban and suburban settings, she has acquired a repertoire of diverse literature for the secondary level. Her teaching experience has given her the ability to see how beneficial fostering the love of reading diverse text can be in building empathy, encouraging respect for all cultures, developing critical thinking skills, and promoting exploratively, courageous writing. As much as she is passionate about imparting knowledge to her students, she is also equally passionate about helping schools diversify their curriculum so that all students feel included, empowered, and have increased achievement.
She is the writer of, The Big Sea, a literary blog, where she has written about her experiences and thoughts on over 150 books. The blog serves as a resource for recommendations of texts that cover a variety of topics. She has been a presenter at national conferences and has also been a guest lecturer to educators from across the country inspiring them to do courageous work in their classrooms. As an educational leader she has developed ideas for preparing a diverse group of students for advanced classes. Her thoughts on using diverse literature to build empathy have even been quoted in the "International Literacy Association" Magazine.
Stallworth Educational Consulting Team (SECT) is leading the way to make sure that the curriculum reflects the diversity present in our society, and our existence as a company is fundamentally based on a rigorous approach to teaching current educational standards in a way that promotes a pluralistic school community.
