A Message from

Maya Harris Founder/CEO of LAMA Learning

I am a single mother.

My sons, Mandell and Bryce, are now 19 years old. Twins :-)
My nephew lived with me during his senior year.

Three young, African-American men.
All three are now in college, earning top grades.

It hasn't been easy.
There were days when the lights were off.
There were times that I had to choose between food and bills.
But every time I saw those smiling faces and thought of their bright futures...
I knew that it was worth it.
Because they are worth it.


I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to bring this dream to life. As a 17-year veteran teacher, I spent my days encouraging students to do more, be better, and try harder. It was tempting to always try and make learning fun. However, I knew that fun could only go so far. Learning isn't always fun. It's hard! It takes time and effort. So when I stopped trying to always make learning "fun" and began making learning engaging and challenging (and, yes, sometimes fun) I began to see a change in my students. They started to WANT to learn again because it finally meant something to them. Over the years, people have encouraged me to open a school. It was tempting. But I realized something. Opening a school meant being limited to serving a select group of students, leaving scores of children unserved. I decided that I wanted to create a space where ANY child from ANY family could come and learn how to LOVE school again. A place that could take what started in their classrooms and extend it, making it relevant and real. A place where parents can learn alongside their children, building true learning communities. 
That's what we are building. A place where all families can come to invest in their most important asset, their children.
Because they are worth it.
