Amelia Singleton, Interim Executive Director
Amelia Singleton, also known as Mia, grew up in Destrehan, Louisiana. The eldest of four children, she is also a fifth-generation teacher in her family. “I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I am very passionate about making a difference in children’s lives. I believe that every moment is a teachable moment. Children learn so much through imaginary play, and I am so lucky to be a part of that every day.” One of Amelia’s favorite quotes is from Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” Amelia has an amazing knack for giving the best presents, and she really knows how to bring an event together and make it special. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Mia has spent the last seven years teaching infants and one-year-olds at Abeona House, and became the Interim Executive Director in March 2020.
