Dear TEACH Academy of Technologies Families,
Hello my name is Maricela “Marci” Williams. I am the PROUD principal of TEACH Academy of Technologies. I am a passionate educator who has served the Los Angeles area since 1996. I come with a strong background in instruction and curriculum. I believe ALL students can learn when they are provided with sound instruction and a safe environment. This is what I am committed to do at TEACH Academy of Technologies.
As I join the TEACH community, we have begun a new era; the era of TEACH 3.0! It is an era of growth, an era of collaboration, and an era of accountability. I am very excited to be part of this opportunity. At TAT student achievement will continue to be our focus. We will continue to aim to improve the quality of instruction for all of our students by having our teachers work in professional learning communities (PLCs) and use the cycle of continuous improvement. To this end, teachers will work and learn collaboratively about the latest research in pedagogical practices in a cohesive and systemic manner. We will continue to strive for excellence and provide effective instruction to ensure all students at TEACH reach their academic goals. We will establish a well-rounded approach to ensure that the whole child is served.
This year we will analyze data and use systemic approaches to respond as we go through the WASC accreditation review. Throughout this critical process we will need the support and input of our families and all stakeholders. I believe in maintaining a strong partnership with our families and the community which research has shown to always be the key to student success. I am excited to work collaboratively with you and our professional staff to help our students achieve their highest potential. Please come find out how you can help us help your child. As you help us help your child ensure to do the following:
*Ask your student what he/she learned at school each day. *Read with your student at least 20 minutes daily. *Set up a designated place at home for homework. *Keep in touch with us.
Please reach out to say hello, ask questions, or share your concerns. You may reach me by visiting our school or by calling the main office at 323-872-0809. Through a close partnership with all stakeholders at TEACH Academy of Technologies, I am confident that we will have a very successful school year! GO RAMS!
