Janet Covacevich, Summer Institute Speaker and Monte Vista Middle School Principal

"I am a product of the AVID program and very proud of it. I married the life of an educator and became an advocate for students. I was a teacher and now, I am now a principal at a middle school working with a team of passionate teachers to become a model AVID school because we know that AVID breaks the cycle of poverty, it empowers students, it changes lives."
— Janet Covacevich, Monte Vista Middle School Principal
