Executive Director, Green Pathways to Success Inc.

Executive Director, Green Pathways to Success Inc.
Denise is the Executive Director for Green Pathways to Success, Inc. GPS was
founded in March 2023 by educator, Denise Green, out of a desire to combat the
lack of adequate educational resources and opportunities that plagued the
students from the low socioeconomic communities in which she served. After
taking a teaching position in the inner city, followed by another in a low
socioeconomic community, Denise witnessed firsthand, the lack of sufficient
resources and the disparity within the schools and the surrounding communities.
After twenty-five years of service to the students of Miami-Dade County Florida,
Denise realized that there was still much work to be done in her field and line of
work. A lot has changed for education since 1997 when she started her journey.
Unfortunately, the educational gap and disparage between the black community
and others remains prevalent. After serving as the Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
Chairperson and developing a District-Approved Behavior Plan for her school,
serving as a Director for the 5,000 Role Models of Excellence Project Program for
disadvantaged boys, serving as a K-8 Activities Director, serving as the Grade Level
Chairperson, and serving as the Black History Chairperson for seven (7) years,
Denise decided that the time had come to serve the youths of her community in a
greater depth. Her leadership roles and years of service as a teacher for Miami-
Dade County Public Schools has allowed her to connect and work with many
stakeholders and community leaders. Her commitment to serving her students
and the community as a whole, has allowed her to envision a 21 st century
program that will target the African American community yet still render services
to all children. As a result, the GPS Program was born.
