My name is Lori Miller and I am the AVID Coordinator at Bowman Middle School. Although this is my first year teaching AVID, I have been a sixth-grade science teacher for five years. Bowman is where I've spent my entire career and I love this school and the students that we serve. I graduated from Texas Woman's University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies where I also minored in both Linguistics and Education. I attended graduate school at Concordia University Texas where I earned my Master's of Educational Administration and became a certified school administrator.
What is the AVID Program? AVID is an acronym, which means each letter in the word stands for something. Simply stated, AVID can be broken down into:
What's even cooler is that the word avid comes from the Latin root [L. avidus]: This means one is eager for knowledge. The mission of the AVID program is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society
AVID is a program for students that have a desire to go to college, become a better student, and improve themselves; my goal is to facilitate student growth by providing essential skills, facilitating a positive classroom environment, and creating opportunities for teamwork. In AVID class, we will learn about the organization required for academic success, rigorous academic strategies, college options, how to work as a team, and we will also have lots of fun opportunities to grow as an AVID family together.
AVID Students are well known for their passion for rigor and are examples on campus for their binder organization. This year, all Bowman AVID Students will keep an eBinder as we navigate through this online journey together. For more information, check out our class website that will be updated each week.
