By Eric De Dios (Holtville High School Student)
The AVID program in Holtville High School has been running for 5 years and is ran by Senior English teacher, Mr.Vanacker and now, by Junior English teacher, Mr.Goodsell. Mr. Vanacker teaches the Seniors, Juniors and Sophomore for AVID, while Mr. Goodsell teaches the Freshman.
Tutors frequently come and help the AVID students on certain subjects during an AVID tutorial session, which creates a deeper understanding of concepts covered in core classes and develop skills necessary to become self-directed learners.
This school year, AVID classes at HHS shows it’s growth in education with a new teacher on board, Mike Goodsell.
Other teachers at Holtville High School who have also helped with the AVID program are James Anderholt and Aaron Mendoza.
There is also a noticeable growth in students in the classes ever since AVID began 5 years ago.
