Published

on

SAN ANTONIO, TX (July 27, 2017) – IDEA Public Schools, a nationally-ranked charter school network, announced today plans to open two new schools in San Antonio. The new campus, IDEA Ingram Hills Academy and College Preparatory, will serve over 650 students in its first year. IDEA Ingram Hills joins 20 other IDEA San Antonio schools.

 

“We are thrilled to continue to expand in San Antonio to serve more students and their families in Ingram Hills in 2018,” said Rolando Posada, executive director at IDEA Public Schools San Antonio. “With over 1,400 students on a waiting list at a nearby IDEA school, we will be able to provide a high-quality education to more students in San Antonio as they progress along the road to and through college.”

 

IDEA Ingram Hills Academy and College Preparatory will serve students in Pre-K – 1st & 6th grade in its first year. Each school will add a grade level until the campus reaches full-scale, Pre-K to 12, status in 2024.

 

Beginning in September, parents can visit www.ideapublicschools.org/apply to submit an application for the 2018-19 school year. Additionally, IDEA will host a student lottery in January to randomly select who will fill spots at IDEA campuses for the 2018-19 school year. The selection process is done randomly to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to attend an IDEA school.

 

IDEA is the fastest-growing, highest-achieving charter school network in the country, with 61 schools serving nearly 36,000 students across Texas. Since 2012, IDEA has grown to serve over 10,000 students in the San Antonio region at 20 schools.

Fearless Readers – Founder Caitlyn Baker and Social Media & Events Director Shannon Ruddell

Caitlyn Baker

Founder Certified Barton Coach

As the Founder and Lead Coach at Fearless Readers, LLC, I love working together with families and staff to ensure the best possible outcome for the children we serve.  The best part of my day is when I get to work one-on-one with my amazing students.

Formerly a site director for a learning center in San Antonio, I am experienced in implementing and overseeing the administration of programs concerning dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, neurodevelopmental delays, and a variety of other cognitive areas. My passion for dyslexia grew here as I was able to see the direct impact I had on countless students with the help of these programs.

Prior to working as a site director, I achieved my BA in psychology with a focus on biology and neuropsychology and graduated with Highest of Honors. During my time at UTSA I discovered my passion for teaching when I began working for the athletics center tutoring athletes. I have in depth experience working in the dyslexia program we use and have been certified by the program developer herself.  Currently, I am working on my Master’s degree and preparing to welcome my first child into the world!

I have a wealth of experience in working with children of all ages, from kindergarten to college, and am fully aware of the impact and influence a successful coach or mentor can have on a person of any age. I strive in my coaching sessions to not only give the children I work with the skills they need to overcome their weaknesses in reading and spelling, but also the ability to embrace all their talents and strengths. I love to work on skills like self-confidence/self-esteem and critical thinking and am determined to succeed with every student I encounter.

I designed Fearless Readers with your incredible super-powered child in mind. I truly look forward to getting to know you and your child and designing a personalized plan for reading/spelling success.


Shannon Ruddell

Social Media & Events Director

This year blessed me with my second beautiful daughter. As a mom of two, I love spending time with my family. Like most moms, there is nothing I wouldn’t do to help my kids. I love that my work at Fearless Readers allows me to be part of the solution to the worries and struggles other families in my community are facing.

I’ve spent years working in executive administration and event planning and enjoy the creative role I have here where I can help bring ideas to life and plan events and activities that leave the children we serve feeling inspired and empowered.

Dyslexia runs in my family and I am curious to see if either of my two girls will be blessed with it. As such, I love learning about dyslexia and am working towards becoming a dyslexia coach as well. I love this journey I am on with Fearless Readers and am so excited for you to join me.

Robo Hawks Robotics Team from Harris Middle School Interview

Published

Episode 151

Guest: Robo Hawks Robotics Team Harris Middle School

Our robotics team was created 3 years ago with a small group of students. We have a blend of 6th-8th students, but out of the seven students we had in the club, only one was a female when we first started out. Since our first year we have achieved a more balanced group and have an even mix of young men and women. We began participating in First Lego League as a way to get our feet wet with programming and compete with other teams throughout the San Antonio and surrounding areas. FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the INTO ORBIT season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.

Our students took this challenge head on and we spoke with an engineer from NASA to talk about the challenges these astronauts face with long term space travel. During their conversation with David Brady they realized they wanted to focus on the social emotional aspect these astronauts are faced with because Scott Kelly stated this would be the biggest concern NASA will face. Scott Kelly said the lack of choices in daily activity and being away from Earth is the hardest part of the mission. So the students solution to this was to send virtual reality googles into space with the astronauts so that when they are required to work out on the treadmill for 2 hours a day, they can feel at home by choosing their own adventure. It would be a way to bring Earth to space in a sense. David was impressed with their idea and forwarded the idea on to a colleague at NASA in the Human Research Project to see if they had considered this idea. I’m happy to report that NASA is looking into something similar and David praised our students ingenuity as they did think of a real-life solution for the issues our astronauts face in long-term space travel.


About Middle School Teacher: Stefanie Fulford

I have been teaching for six years. Four of which have been here at Harris Middle School in NEISD. I have always taught science as it is my first love and I believe there is a place for female in this field of study. This year I was awarded the Trinity Prize and Teacher of the Year for my school. I come from a very challenging background as my mother is mentally handicapped, schizophrenic, and has manic depression. I never knew my real dad and my step-dad was an abusive alcoholic. So I was in and out of foster care and finally went to live in an orphanage at age 12. This was a new battle for me, but it provided stability. I joined the military as a way to pay for my college because I knew education was the key to a better life. I am proud to say I not only have my bachelors in education, but a masters in psychology. I wanted to be a positive influence in others around me so teaching made sense as I would create the most change in the next generation. I take every opportunity to connect with my students so that I can positively influence them.
