For the last 7 months, PSCCN hosted Mikaela Chavez an amazing educational community organization (ECO) Intern from the University of Washington. Mikaela bought a great personality, a willingness to learn and an amazing work ethic. During her internship, Mikaela had the opportunity to work on many different projects with the team but ultimately reported to Angelica. While we are sad to see her go, we are excited to see her take on the world or what lies in store for her. To wrap up her tenure here at PSCCN, Mikaela shares her experience through a Q&A interview.

At PSESD, we know that the success of our students balances on the structures of support that are built in our schools. Though recent efforts have been made to expand opportunities for continued learning after high school, inequities persist in our schools that contribute to opportunity gaps and prevent many students from realizing their college and career goals.
