Ja'Melia Pugh

Teacher, Writer, and Educational Consultant in Pleasanton, CA

Hire me

I am an Oakland Native who recently moved back to the East Bay.

Recently, I joined Super Star Literacy as a Program Manager. Prior to moving back last year, I lived in Washington, D.C. for 8 years. I taught, coached, lead and mentored students and educators. The breadth of my educational experience spans both traditional and charter schools. I graduated from Florida A&M University in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Of Science in Elementary Education and I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership with an emphasis on social justice.

Prior to joining SSL, I was an Assistant Principal at Rocketship MOSAIC Public Charter School in San Jose, Ca. Working in education allows me to demonstrate the commitment to creating greater equity for all children and aiming to empower those individuals who want to make a difference.

I have a passion for empowering leaders, teachers, and students. I want to cultivate their minds in order to bring out their best abilities. It’s my belief that any child can learn and thrive despite any obstacle in their life. It’s our job to expose them to the possibilities within this world.

Not only am I an Educational Leader but, I am a budding writer and future business owner. I am dedicated to empowering my community and building generational wealth. Ultimately, I hope my impact will create long-lasting change that will allow children and families to live fruitful lives.

I'm Blessed, Down-to-earth, fun-loving, music lover. I am a FAMU Alum. On a journey to accomplish my dreams and conquer the world.
