PRIME TIME

PARENTING

PREPARE. EDUCATE. STRIVE.

"There is a brilliant child in

every student; you have to find

the KEY to unlock the door."

-LWLacy

Children are our engine of change for tomorrow. The nuclear function of families' parenting styles can make, break, or change systemic issues that plague American families.  The mission of Prime Time Parenting is to be a tool to assist parents and their children in being a beacon of change for our society by developing positive parent and child relationships.

MEET THE TEAM

TRUDY WARREN
Executive director

I am an educator with 17 years of experience teaching middle and high school students.  I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1997 from the University of Arkansas and a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Memphis in 2005. Seeking these degrees with my children were difficult, to say the least.  Balancing my family with a move to Memphis, TN in 2000 is one of my greatest accomplishments. I have raised 3 children. As a parent, I want my children to be contributing members of society.  

Throughout my years of teaching, I have seen parents that were involved and those who were unable to be involved in the educational success of their child.  My goal is to increase parenting and leadership skills that inspire parents/guardians to become instrumental in the success of their children. 

JUDY MATHIS
Assistant Executive

I have had the pleasure of teaching 2nd & 3rd-grade students for 20 years now with legacy Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools. I love children and teaching. My philosophy is that all children deserve to learn. I know that the most important factor in a child’s life is their first teacher which is their parents. I have earned a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

           I have had challenges and successes in parenting, but I know that parenting doesn’t come with a manual. My goal is to help parents and guardians to better meet the needs of their child by teaching effective parenting strategies and techniques that apply to today’s child.
