Sometimes a normal day can suddenly take a turn to become an inspiring one. In an urban setting it can become challenging to shift the focus away from only seeing the problems and obstacles. However, sitting down with Rigoberto Orozco helped me to remember that despite the difficulties we have, teachers who rise to the occasion and work above and beyond the call of duty greatly impact our students. Here's just another reminder of how much impact a teacher can make in the life of a student and why education is such an important investment in the next generation.
Me: "So what teacher has influenced you the most at CCAHS?"
Rigo: "Mrs. Rose Crowley"
Me: "How so?"
Rigo: "She inspires me. She's passionate about teaching. One time, she broke her toe but kept teaching the rest of the day. Mrs. Crowley and my mom meet after school so they can improve their English and Spanish skills."
Thank you Mrs. Crowley for inspiring and reminding me of why we are here. Thank you teachers for all that you do!

Congratulations to the CCAHS Honors Constitutional Studies class for participating in simulated congressional hearings at the We the People State Competition on January 9 in Lansing, MI. CCA's Unit 6 team won second place in their division at states, the highest place ever earned by a CCA team at this annual rigorous competition. Team members Abraham Hernandez, Julisa Guzman, Benjamin Lumsden, and Sheny Vasquez successfully vied with high-achieving students from all around the state of Michigan and represented the Aztec Eagles well while demonstrating expertise in constitutional history, principles, and applications.
We also have to congratulate Mrs. Kosmala-Jackson for the tremendous job she does teaching and preparing our students year in and year out - THANK YOU Mrs. Kosmala-Jackson.
Vamos Aguilas !!!
