Meet Dr. Onequa Hampshire

Dr. Onequa Hampshire is an educator that believes all children can learn and when offered the opportunity with assistance, they can strive toward higher heights.  She considers the students diverse life experiences and their own unique way of learning which will aid in assisting others to learn and grow in an engaging environment. She thinks that her role in the classroom is to motivate the students in a positive manner and to use herself as an instrument to facilitate active learning. As an educator, she has been afforded the opportunity to be a positive, hands-on influence in the lives of numerous young people.  This has added value to her life as she has helped them realize their own potential.  She takes great pleasure in mentoring young people, which has become a labor of love for her that extends beyond the classroom.

She currently teaches 7th grade math, she is the Technology Liason for the 2020 - 2021 school year, and she is an adjunct professor at Grand Canyon University. Dr. Hampshire holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Central State University in Wilberforce Ohio, a Master of Science degree in Information Systems from Lawrence Technological University in Southfield Michigan, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Curriculum and Instruction from Capella University in Minneapolis Minnesota. In August 2019, Dr. Hampshire was nominated teacher of the year for her school and she was selected as one of the top six finalist for Teacher of the Year for Clayton County School District.

In the summer of 2018, Dr. Hampshire was awarded the opportunity to become an American Institute for Resource and Human Development Fulbright-Hays Group Project Abroad Participant. This five-week study abroad program provided her with an opportunity to delve into culture, language, and the ability to meet and learn from experts across different academic fields who shared their knowledge with the participants to better prepare them to share with their peers and students in the United States. The knowledge gained helped her communicate and grasp a better understanding as she traveled to different regions around the greater Accra area, Cape Coast and Kumasi to visit historical sites to experience the richness of Ghanaian culture. This rewarding experience has aided her in developing a special interest in providing professional development opportunities for teachers in Ghana. In June 2019, she volunteered her time with the Center 4 TransAtlantic Leadership and Progressive Studies program to provide about 50 teachers with professional development activities that would assist them in their classrooms. She looks forward to allowing God to lead and guide her as she continues to volunteer and seek opportunities to assist other teachers.
