Malaika Gaskins is a product of Prince William County Schools and currently works as a School Counselor. Growing up in Woodbridge, Malaika attended Enterprise ES, King ES, Saunders MS, and Osbourn Park and Hylton High Schools.
Malaika chose to work in education because, “I have always wanted to help others, especially those who are in need and underserved.” After receiving her Bachelors of Social Work and Masters of Education with a certification in Special Education from VCU, Malaika came back to PWCS as a Special Education teacher at Beville MS. She transitioned 7 years later to a School Counselor position at Gar-Field High School, with a Masters Degree of Education School Counseling from GWU. Malaika has worked at Gar-Field for the past ten years in the Counseling Department, where she also serves as an Association Leader for PWEA.
As an active PWEA member, Malaika enjoys attending VEA and NEA conventions as a delegate representing our county and state. In her free time, she teaches group fitness classes, loves to travel and try new foods, and spend time with her new dog, Bishop.
