Success Story: Javangeline

The beginning of the year was a challenge for her, but when Javangeline started participating in after school activities, like wrestling, she began to find an outlet. After regular check-ins with Communities In Schools, she expressed her desire to not just meet her goals but to exceed them. To do so, Javangeline started eating her lunches with different teachers nearly every day to rebuild the relationships and sought help with classwork. She has redefined herself in the eyes of teachers and staff as she considers how the decisions she makes now will affect her in the future. Although she still has progress to make, her new attitude towards education, respecting her peers, and strengthening her relationship with her teachers is paying off academically, behaviorally, and with her coursework.
