When we expect more, our students achieve more. Every day, in classrooms all across the nation there are stories of success—from educators who go above and beyond, to parents who support their child’s education, to students who rise to the challenge of high expectations for their achievement. This is one of those stories.
When I first started teaching at Compton Early College I was excited at the new opportunity. Students were interested in learning computer science and with great support from the district and community I set off on a journey that has been amazing. Four years later we have our first graduating class and 100% have been accepted to a 4 year university and 60% of the senior class are graduating with a High School diploma and AA degree. For a school in Compton to achieve this is monumental. As for my pathway Im excited to have several of my students who are now prepared to be true leaders in the community and will be amazing in the Computer Science and Engineering pathway they choose to pursue.
