    Florence Ndiaye
    Parent Resource Center Coordinator

    Greetings!  Thank you for taking the time to visit Whittle Springs Middle School Parent Resource Center's (PRC) web page.  My name is Florence M. Ndiaye (Pronouced, "Jie") and I have been with Knox County Schools for 6 years and have loved every minute of it!  My passion is serving our great students and their families!  When I'm not running the PRC, I teach American Sign Language (ASL) to 6 graders & what a wonderful group of students I have!  My students and parents push me to reach higher, to work harder, and to always live life to the fullest! I welcome the opportunity to present at your establishment to discuss ways you can help our families or if you're one of our families needing some assistance, please reach out to me!  I'm here for you and want to help!  My motto is, "Empowering families...one at a time!" and that's just what we are doing!
