My name is Jennifer Egan and I have the honor of being your AVID teacher for the next 4 years. I have been teaching for over 20 years and 13 of those years I have spent teaching AVID. I truly believe in the power of AVID…I believe in the strategies and in the community. I have had the privilege of guiding 4 groups of AVID students through their high school years. Many of those students I keep in touch with regularly. This community, this family we will build is the best part of the AVID experience. And like all good things, it will take some time, but we will get there. So, I would like to be the first to welcome you to the AVID family. I want you to understand that I carefully chose YOU to be a part of this community because of your potential and the special gifts you possess. I am very excited to begin this journey with you. I know the next four years will be filled with ups and downs, joys and heartaches, triumphs and failures...and I will be with you every step of the way.
