Shafawu Yakubu

Hello! My name is Shafawu and this is my first year here at Pickerington North High and I am so excited to be part of the MD Unit team as a Paraprofessional. I was a substitute last school year and mostly I was in the MD class and so I am grateful I have been giving the opportunity to do what I love doing full time and I look forward to working with you and your family and together we will make the world a better place for everyone.


I have a Bachelors Degree in Renewable Natural Resources from Ghana. I have a Pharmacy Technician certified and I also have Child development Associate certification.
