We focus on the students and all know their names, but many of of us do not know the names of the adults sitting next to us at football games, pep rallies, and graduations.
San Pasqual Academy (SPA) is a collaborative campus with adults from multiple agencies working together to raise and educate our youth. Adults from five agencies support our students:
Today, I met with Tia Moore, SPA campus director, and pitched my idea of figuring out how to connect the staff using social media. I did not even need to provide details. She gave me a solid thumbs-up!
