E▪B▪H & T Associates, an education and training consulting company, was established in 2002 by Edwin LaMar Haynes, J.D. and Iburia Hall-Haynes, Ph.D. Mr. Haynes is a graduate of Howard University School of Law and was an adjunct professor in Legal and Paralegal Studies at Northern Virginia Community College. Dr. Hall-Haynes has been an educator and staff developer for many years. She is Co-Founder and Senior Partner of E▪B▪H & T Associates where she provides web development, instructional design, and technology training for clients.
Mr. Haynes was employed at the National Education Association (NEA). While at NEA, he served as: Director of Education, Business and Outreach; coordinated NEA’s participation in the Million Mom March on sensible gun laws and safe schools; directed NEA’s first national literacy initiative and Read-In—“Green Eggs to Hamlet”; wrote the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ (USCM) and the National Conference of Black Mayors’ (NCBM) first national policy papers and resolutions on public education; and managed and coordinated the participation of the NEA in the first White House Summit on Education under the leadership of former President William Clinton.
Dr. Hall-Haynes is a graduate of Alabama State University (B.S.); Antioch University (M.A.); and George Mason University (Ph.D.). She was a teacher, Technology Integration Education (TIE) Specialist, and Performance Evaluation Program (PEP) Specialist in the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) in Alexandria, VA for about three decades before retirement. Many of the students, teachers, administrators, and other staff she taught and trained referred to her as a “teacher’s teacher” and a “trainer’s trainer”.
She is an active member of Oakland Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., as well as a board member of Project Discovery Alexandria. She enjoys giving back to the community and working with dropout and truancy intervention projects.
Additionally, Dr. Hall-Haynes completed a study entitled “Truancy and Truancy Interventions: Perceptions of Education Leaders and Students”. The study examined truancy interventions that are typically used in high schools and how they are perceived by education leaders and students. The study found that interventions that included parental involvement, mentoring, and tutoring, when used effectively and consistently, contribute significantly to the success of students.
Edneka L. Haynes, the daughter of Edwin and Iburia, serves as a legal consultant to the company. She received a B.A. in Criminal Justice and Philosophy from the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, and a J.D. from Howard University School of Law (HUSL), Washington, D.C. At HUSL she was an intern in the Criminal Justice Clinic and a student attorney working in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Ms. Haynes contributes substantially to workshops and presentations conducted by the firm.
