WELCOME from the Jefferson Center Director:
I am honored to be the Director of the Jefferson Center. We serve students who face many challenges every day and are dedicated to providing a safe, positive learning environment. Our purpose is to provide disciplinary structure and encouragement for students as they serve consequences in the DAEP programs and work to improve their behaviors in the SAC program. I am an advocate of treating students with dignity and respect, as they learn lessons from poor choices they have made. I believe all of our students have “hope for a positive future” regardless of where they have been. Our staff strives to help these students find that hope,encourage and partner with their parents, while maintaining student academic progress.
I am dedicated to supporting an extraordinary and diverse staff at Jefferson as they work with students assigned here. Our job is challenging, we take it seriously,and we want to be here for students, parents, and as a support for the AISD home campuses.
