In total, there are nine children in my family attending Success Academy this year. Eight of them are at SA Harlem 5, and my eldest just started sixth grade at SA Harlem West. We almost “bleed” blue and orange, and love celebrating together with the group picture at both the start and the end of the year!
As Teacher Appreciation Week draws to a close, I want to congratulate and thank our teachers for all their hard work and dedication this year.
Of all the schools, programs, and clubs I have played and coached for, Success Academy is the perfect marriage of a vision I can fully stand behind and practices that allow me to maximize the potential of every person I interact with.
When I first started teaching, two words bounced around my head hourly: “achievement” and “gap.”
