During her 15-year tenure at CNN, Mrs. Valerie Vaughan was involved in many enriching work experiences. She was a video-tape editor, wrote news copy, served as an Associate Producer, and supervised and trained many new hires. She spearheaded a campaign to heighten sensitivity and eliminate biased language in CNN story reports. This action resulted in the production of a 30-minute internal training video. Valerie served as the project manager and executive producer of the program. Ultimately, the tape was used for the training and orientation of all new hires.
Always a teacher at heart, Mrs. Vaughan says: “Whenever I learn something new, I feel compelled to teach it to someone else.” In 2017, marrying her writing skills and her passion for education, Valerie expanded on that philosophy by founding the All-Write Academy. She is excited to expand her program to Eastside students this year. All-Write uses creative, out of the box methods to help students become better communicators.
Valerie Vaughan is a native of Chicago Illinois. She now lives in Snellville GA, with her husband, Robert and her daughter, Adora.
