Dennis | New NAZ Family Achievement Coach at KIPP

"I have the chance to work with families who remind me of myself and how I grew up. I was able to have close mentors who supported me through my own journey as I became successful in my own right. I can now be that mentor for someone else."

Helping Her Scholars Succeed

As a single mom to six NAZ scholars, Estella N. is a busy parent. But she manages to keep her scholars focused on school, supporting them however she can. She takes them on regular trips to the library, and even set up a library for them in the home. Estella also helps them with their homework, and heads off the “summer slide” by enrolling her scholars at NAZ Partner Expanded Learning programs, which they attend year-round.

Estella sets a positive example to her kids by pursuing her own goals. She recently achieved her goal of obtaining employment, and graduated from the NAZ College Bound Babies program, a series of classes that provides parents of 0-3 year-old children the skills and tools they need to help their young scholars succeed.
