Robin Y. Green
Robin Y. Green is a career educator whose passion is serving the whole child. Her desire to become a professional educator stems from the impact her elementary and high school counselors had on her during her upbringing in the Washington, DC suburb of Oxon Hill, MD. After graduating from UNC- Charlotte with a degree in Psychology, Green earned a Master of Science in Counselor Education from North Carolina A & T State University. She later received her administrative certification from UNC-Charlotte in 2010.
She began her professional career in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) in 2000 as a school counselor, where she served in this capacity for nine years. During this time, Green was selected to serve a student services department chair at two schools and new counselor mentor for the school district. In 2006, she earned her National Board certification and was selected to facilitate professional development for all CMS school counseling candidates over the course of several years. Green also served as the first secondary Intervention Team Specialist in CMS prior to beginning her administrative tenure in 2010.
As a licensed school administrator, she has served stakeholders within two large urban CMS high schools. She utilizes a combination of her experiences as a professional school counselor with those from her time as a school-based administrator and adds common sense lessons learned from her parents who have been married for almost fifty-one years to guide her in her current role of Learning Community Administrator.
As a Learning Community Administrator, Green primarily facilitates hearings for students who violate higher level rules of the CMS Code of Student Conduct. She also serves as a thought partner and consultant to principals, provides professional development and coaching to assistant principals and Deans of Students, collaborates with district personnel on various committees and think tanks, as well as providing training and support on district initiatives such as Restorative Practices.
Green is a servant leader who believes in volunteerism. She represents CMS as a board member for "Do the Right Thing" of Charlotte-Mecklenburg and is a proud Alpha Kappa Alpha woman; recently becoming a charter member of the Omega Sigma Omega Chapter in April 2017. Since 1994, she has led a faith-based girls' mentoring group having served over one thousand participants.
She was recently recognized in the sixth edition of "Who's Who in Black Charlotte".
Green describes herself as being a "flawsome" leader because she recognizes her flaws, knows she is awesome in spite of them; and is not afraid to transparently share her truth as a testament to others.
