A Letter From The Desk Of Ann Harris
Academy of Educational Excellence was founded by Ann Jerkins-Harris with the support of her loving and dedicated husband, Bill Harris, in 2012.
Opening and maintaining AEE is the culmination of the efforts of this passionate educator. Mrs. Harris spent over 30 years as a primary educator, mentor and coach with Toledo Public schools before retiring to make passion a reality. Throughout her career she desired to bring quality education to our youngest learners. In 2007 she opened Learners for Life Child Development Center which educates children from birth to age 5. This endeavor quickly rose to become a premier establishment (5 Star Rated). As children began to age out of the program, parents requested that their children have the opportunity to continue their excellent learning experience.
It was then that Academy of Educational Excellence was envisioned and brought to life. Now with over 50 years of educational experience a master’s plus degree and a successful learning center already in hand, Mrs. Harris brings Toledo AEE, a school geared toward preparing our youth for life-long learning and leadership. She has worked diligently to build the school into an educational home where students and their families have teachers and staff who not only care for their academic achievement but the growth and development of the whole child.
