Mrs. Adele Gedeo


Adele grew up in a Navy family, so she traveled often as a toddler. But she eventually landed in Woodbridge, where she spent her childhood. She attended Hampton University for two years before transferring to and graduating from the University of the District of Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture. 

She began her career as a temp, working in many different industries. After being assigned to help in Tucker's office during the 2011-2012 school year, Adele officially joined the Tucker family as the registrar in August 2012. In addition to her duties as registrar, she has unofficially become the go-to person for technology help in the office.

Adele appreciates the value of life-long learning. She is always open to learning new things, including new cultures and languages. She understands Spanish and some Japanese, but does not like to call herself bilingual because she still has plenty to learn.

Adele will always try her best to help answer any questions you may have about Tucker, but the following are her specialties:

• Student registration

• Student records (grades, health)

• Transferring schools/moving
