I have worked at Noli for the last 4 years and I love being part of this team. My goal as the AVID teacher is to prepare all my students for success in the future. Our program builds strong bonds between the students and teachers while encouraging our students to reach for their biggest goals. Working with the AVID kids at Noli is a privilege and a joy.
