April Garrett

Director of Education

I am a certified teacher in both Alabama and Georgia. I have a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Berry College. My husband is a veteran and we have been married 18 years. We have 4 wonderful children. After graduating with my master’s I subbed at most of the Rome City Schools for 4 years. Then I taught 6th grade English Language Arts for a year.. I love working with small groups or one on one here at Sylvan. I really feel like I can make a difference for these kids. I instruct reading, math, writing, social studies, homework support, study skills, and ACT/SAT prep.


Laura Green

Admin Assistant

I began my career at Sylvan roughly two years ago as a parent volunteer while my son was enrolled as a student. I ended up liking it so much, and had developed such a meaningful connection with the kids, that I decided to start working here. When I’m away from work, you can typically find me with my husband and/or son, and our Maine Coon Cat. I am also a published indie author, so if I’m not with family, I’m usually in my writing cave.


Lisa Stewart

Admin Assistant

My name is Lisa Stewart, and I am an undergraduate student at Liberty University pursuing a degree in Business. After experiencing Sylvan’s success firsthand in 2020, I officially joined the Sylvan family.  I am a proud wife and mother, and in my free time, I love to travel.

I began my teaching career in 1984, as a corporate educator. In addition to all aspects of advanced Cosmetology, I taught a wide range of business practices related to Cosmetology and franchising, including, but not limited to, advertising, accounting, and staff management. After leaving this position, I continued to teach in Sunday School and online Bible studies while going back to college for my Spanish degree. Upon Graduation, I began teaching Spanish in the Public School system. I have been tutoring for Sylvan and teaching Spanish, reading, and Homework support since 2017.

My name is Mary Clark. I have worked for Sylvan of Rome since 2018. I hold a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, as well as a Specialist degree in Leadership and Administration. I also hold numerous certifications in reading and child development. My hobbies include reading, painting, and spending time with my loved ones.


Thomas Morales


I began my career with Sylvan in 2020, shortly after I graduated from Berry College. A tutor and teacher’s assistant throughout his academic career, I had experience assisting students in STEM-related fields and had a strong desire to help the local community as students were struggling with the transition to online learning. I certainly found a place at Sylvan of Rome, where I can work with students studying Mathematics, SAT/ACT Prep, and general homework support. I look forward to continuing my work in the local community and helping the next generation of students excel.


Jan Nisbit


Hi, I am Jan Nisbet; I began my teaching career as the HS choral and drama director at Hononegah HS in Rockton IL. I moved to Chicago and began a professional life in the theatre. After relocating to Rome GA, I worked as the costume designer and shop supervisor for Shorter University. Currently, I am the costume designer for Reinhardt University plus I own a side business JDNisbet Designs. In the spring of 2022, I began teaching students at Sylvan. With educator parents, I have teaching in my blood. It is fitting to end my career back in the classroom where it started.
