Meet the Director: Maurice Guest

My name is Maurice Guest, Jr. I am the Director of the East Village Junior High. eStem is built on a legacy of excellence and acceptance, and I look forward to driving East Village Junior High to continue to build upon that legacy.

As a native of Little Rock, I graduated from Hall High School and went on to obtain my Bachelors Degree from Philander Smith College and my Master’s Degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I spent eight years as an accomplished science teacher at Horace Mann before transitioning to eStem to serve as the Dean of Students. After three years, I was promoted to Assistant Director at eStem Junior High Downtown.

My approach to education is not complicated. As an educational leader, I believe in structure and discipline, rugged hard work, and setting extremely high expectations for all students. Simply put, our students will be the most respectful, hardest working, and thus the highest performing students in this city!
