Biante’ Gainous

“Strong leaders have vision. They maintain the balance between integrity, performance, and business acumen. They are humble, focused, courageous, driven, have the ability to execute effective planning, and can cultivate a collaborative environment.” Biante’ Gainous embodies all the qualities she uses to describe an excellent leader.

Experience as a student and then as a teacher in Baltimore City Public Schools introduced Biante’ to the great disparity in educational opportunities between zip codes. Inspired by her experience, Biante’ plans to open a high-powered charter school in Las Vegas that values community and, above all else, is a place where students perform at the highest level. As Biante’ says, “high expectations breed greatness. I envision fostering a new generation of fearless, innovative leaders.”

In addition to teaching in Baltimore City, Biante has been a resident principal, lead of several school committees, and a private tutor for adults and K-12 students for the past four years. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Hampton University and a master’s from John Hopkins.
