Meet the CEO

Hi! My name is Aretina Staten. I am the CEO and Founder of Aspire Education Advocates. We are extremely excited to work with you and cannot wait to hear about your precious gift; children are certainly a blessing. But first, scroll down a little, to learn more about me!


I have a true passion for working and advocating for all children, regardless of race, gender, religion, needs, or age. I am committed to their progress and growth in all academic and social skills. Moreover, I help foster collaborative learning environments, maintain regulatory compliance, resolve behavioral issues, and document client's progress. I deliver an effective systematic approach, to transfer knowledge and unlock the full potential of each client.


My goal is to build positive connections between the schools and parents. I strongly believe this method enhances students' level of motivation, which in turn, promotes learning. There are times where parents believe schools are not rendering the services appropriately, and that's when Aspire Education Advocates steps in. We've become an effective voice to a child’s interests. Rather it's the educational process, need for happiness, obtaining necessary services, behavioral, inclusion and development of functional living skills; we are here for  you.

I am a wife and mother to two beautiful children. Therefore, I understand the challenges you may face and how it can have an impact in your home. In addition, I personally know how difficult and/or frightening some situations can be, especially if you're alone. I was in your shoes 14 years ago. You don't have to be! I am certainly a fighter and will do everything in my power, for your child to receive a safe and supportive environment.
