She desires to promote policy change to increase educational funding in public schools to accommodate the unique needs of troubled youth.
Angela Stone Martin, Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership, seeks to evoke disciplinary reforms that will promote school engagement, strong student-teacher relationships, intrinsic motivation, and the education of the whole child. She strives to redirect the current focus of educational leaders on standardized testing to the elements that secure academic success and educational equity for all children. She believes more government expenditures should be afforded to the presence of and accessibility to trained psychologists and counselors within schools to intervene problematic student behaviors.

She has helped dozens of students enroll in and graduate from accredited colleges and trade schools.

Her endless passion makes her the ideal Educational Consultant to facilitate staff development to better student outcomes.
Dr. Angela Stone Martin understands the deep connection between the overuse of punitive discipline in schools and students' internalized beliefs of inferiority, social incapacity, and academic incompetence. As a change agent, Angela Stone Martin has coordinated and led many training seminars to senior high school girls to demonstrate their full potential in the world. She has an exceptional track record as Teacher Leader with hundreds of student nominations as a caring and compassionate teacher.
