Educator Spotlight: Roosevelt High School’s Athletic Director, Coach Javier Cid

Coach Javier Cid has been a fixture in Roosevelt High School football for over two decades, first as assistant coach and then head coach and now as the school's Athletic Director. He’s led the school’s legendary football team to countless victories, but as a teacher first, Coach Cid insists on making academics a priority. As the team prepares for the East L.A. Classic we sat down with Coach Cid to talk about his tenure at Roosevelt and how he inspires his athletes to excel beyond sports.

Show, Don’t Just Tell: Restorative Practices Learning Visits

We don’t just tell people about our work with restorative practices; we open our doors and invite them in. We welcome visitors to participate in circle, interview our students and staff, and engage in deep conversations about the lessons we’ve learned. On September 18th, Roosevelt, Gompers and Markham had visits from two school networks and several community partners eager to see our implementation of restorative practices in action.

School and Classroom Environments Shine with Collective Action

Something’s different this year. Walking down the halls of our schools, there’s something notably different about the school and classroom environments. It’s not just the summer deep cleaning or the freshly waxed floors (though they help); there’s something collective about our environment expectations that has shifted the way schools and classrooms look and feel across the Partnership network.

Partnership Teachers Embark on Teaching Fellowship in the Middle East

A colleague once remarked to me that teaching is about enabling connections. We work to connect students to the content, to ourselves, or to their classroom peers in an effort to engage their minds in learning. As educators, we should similarly connect ourselves in as many ways as possible to those who can help us further refine our craft. One way of enabling this is by traveling abroad and fostering relationships with educators of different nationalities. Not only do we gain insight into how different cultures approach the central problems in education, but we see our own society's approach to education with fresh perspective. Such a trip is invigorating both on personal and professional levels.

Like Everything About LA, Being Education Mayor Is Different

It's been almost eight years since Antonio Villaraigosa moved into LA City Hall and announced fixing the public schools would be a hallmark of his administration -- even though he had no formal control over the school district. Cynics scoffed and advisors cautioned, but the new mayor was on a mission and the behemoth Los Angeles Unified School District, or LAUSD, would never be the same.
