(BPRW) New Metro Atlanta Charter School Fills Gap In Education System; Now Accepting Applications

- Genesis Innovation Academy is a State-Approved Charter School that offers gender-specific instruction and small class sizes -

 Dr. Gavin Samms


(Black PR Wire) (Atlanta, GA) – Genesis Innovation Academy, a free public charter school, will open its doors in Fall 2017 for students entering kindergarten through 6th grade.

Founded by Dr. Gavin Samms, a graduate of Harvard University and Georgia Institute of Technology, Genesis Innovation Academy offers students a cross-disciplinary curriculum. “We are pairing the traditional subjects with curriculum that challenges scholars to be the creative, critical-thinkers who prosper in the 21st century,” says Dr. Samms. “So Yes! We teach math. However, we connect math to economics, investing and finance.”

Dr. Samms has coined the E5 curriculum model. Scholars apply core subjects to the study of Engineering (STEM), Economics, Entrepreneurship, Ethics, and Expression.

Samms has a history of increasing student performance, most recently as founding principal of Fulton Leadership Academy for boys in South Fulton. Under his leadership, African-American males far exceeded state performance benchmarks. That experience combined with research led to creating the smaller, single-gender classrooms Genesis Innovation Academy will offer. “Boys are less engaged, suspended and expelled more, and have lower grades. For urban boys, this is a crisis,” says Samms. “Our girls are often discouraged from pursuing high paying, high-power fields that men dominate. We cannot continue to pretend our sons and daughters have the same needs. They do not!”

Samms, a father of four, will send his children to Genesis in the fall. “I tried traditional school for my children. But I grew frustrated with a process that could not meet their academic needs. The focus has been on preparing our children to be test takers in a world that rewards innovators. The old approach is not working, and I cannot wait for someone else to figure this out.”

Samms, travels the country coaching principals on school turnaround. “I’m in this business to make a difference. My job as an educator is to use strategies that work and eliminate those that do not. Genesis is committed to doing what works!”

AFRICAN AMERICAN TEENAGE GIRLS OPT FOR SOCCER

- SOUTHSIDE HEAT ESTABLISH ITSELF AS AN ASSET TO THE CITY OF ATLANTA TEAM AMONG LEADERS IN ATHENA U15 COMPETITIVE SOCCER -

girl soccer




Atlanta, GA August, 2015: Georgia's state capitol was dubbed Hotlanta for its sizzling climate and all the whimsical attractions it has to offer. Among the latter, a multimillion dollar deal announced by Falcons Owner and Chairman, Arthur Blank, will welcome the Atlanta United FC professional soccer team and a state of the art complex to match. A telltale sign that a sport once ignored by the African American populace, is now in the know. But don?t tell the Southside Heat, the only competitive female African American teenage soccer team in the city, and yet another sizzling asset to acknowledge.

Members of the Southwest Atlanta's Tiger Soccer Club, the Heat has risen to athletic prominence over the better part of a decade. Ranked 39th in the state of Georgia and among the leaders in Athena U15 Competitive Soccer, it marches into fall season play after registering an undefeated 2014 fall campaign.

While competitive clubs they routinely play against, and defeat, are oft times financially driven, the Heat's focus is motivated by true passion. That, along with a longing desire to improve each and every time their cleats settle into the soil to engage another squad.

girl soccer




Prior to the sudden popularity and interest in soccer, perhaps initiated by the 2015 US Women?s World Cup victory this summer, The Heat established itself as a tough, nose to the grind bunch with an undying passion for the game.

When you look at the soccer level in Atlanta, it's a quality level, says Coach Domenic Martelli, an Olympic Development Region 3 board member and former West Point Military Academy Assistant Coach (Women) who supervised a weeklong Developmental Camp with the Heat this summer. It's only a matter of time before this group is competing in Athena A or B division. They were great very receptive and they worked very, very hard.

Fred Spencer, whose daughter Simone Spencer (12) has been playing soccer since the age of four years old, decided on moving to join the Heat this season upon hearing of its stellar reputation.

We weren't pleased with the last club she was with, said Spencer. She's getting a lot more skills and training here. She likes the camaraderie of the girls and she's having fun.

While the Heat has gained notoriety and acclaim for its on the field performance, its chemistry is something that was established before many of the girls were presented with their first homework assignment(s). Since joining the Tiger Soccer Club as a complete group after bolting from another less competitive organization, the Heat has essentially grown up together, as sisters.

What makes them special is their cohesiveness, said Ronald Freeman, President of the Tiger Soccer Club. They're friends. They do well in school. They come from very [supportive families] and they love to play soccer. I think that they have been a great representation of girls soccer in South Fulton and they've encouraged a lot of other young ladies to consider soccer.

AFRICAN AMERICAN PLAYWRIGHT

My name is Stacy Lamar King. I am a local playwright and looking to network with young African American students to introduce myself and my work. I have written 2 of a 3 play set based on the Love Story of Joseph and Mary told through the eyes of a young City of Charleston African American couple in 2016.... The first play is titled "Where There's Faith There's Grace - The Greatest Love Story Ever Told" it is published. The second play is titled "The Fruits of the Spirit - You Will Know You're My People When You Have Love For One Another" It is currently in formatting. Looking to engage and be inspired by our youth. You're all that we have that is promising...

black/african american opinion

Be Someone, Inc.

Educators today face tough choices. Limited funds, increasing expenses and class sizes, and the requirements imposed by federal legislation combine to challenge even the most experienced of educators.

My name is Orrin C. Hudson. I am the founder and president of Be Someone, Inc., and an Atlanta-based nonprofit that promotes academic achievement. Be Someone uses chess, as both a metaphor and a teaching tool, to further self-esteem, responsibility, and analytical thinking among at-risk kids. Be Someone helps kids to develop the practical skills and techniques that enable them to overcome obstacles, seize opportunities, and realize their potential.

My own life is proof that every move counts. A two-time world-open speed chess champion, author, Air Force veteran, and former Alabama State Trooper and entrepreneur, I grew up in an Alabama housing project, the seventh of thirteen children. Lacking direction and purpose during my early teens, I was headed down the wrong path. My high-school teacher took an interest in me and got me on the right path.

Since 2001, we have taught more than 40,000 kids in eight states the meaning of making every move count. Our students have 3 Atlanta Public City-wide chess championship and My DeKalb students and won a state-wide chess champions. Parents and teachers report increased classroom participation, grade point averages, and attendance, along with improved concentration, problem-solving skills, and behavior. Our work had been featured nationally on CNN, Good Morning America, CBS Early Morning Show, People magazine, USA Today. Essence Magazine and Sports Illustrated for Teens and numerous local media outlets.

I would be happy to conduct a hands-on workshop at your school. Please reply this e-mail or call my office today (770-465-6445) to schedule a session or just to talk about the program, which can be customized to meet the needs of your students. You can also find out more about our program at www.besomeone.org.
