Angie serves as the Program Director of Relevant Academy. While working as Associate Superintendent of General Education of Eaton Intermediate School District, she recognized that many young learners were dropping out early in their education. She saw that the barriers to completing their education might be removed if they were given a place to go where they felt safe, welcomed, supported, and where they would be taught the skills needed to succeed academically and vocationally in the ever changing modern world.
As Office Manager, Jean assures that all the business of Relevant Academy is running smoothly. She is an expert at data management, training, problem solving, and assuring that everyone has all the tools they need to be successful in their jobs. With nearly 30 years of experience, Jean took advantage of the opportunity to help change young lives and left her former career to join us in working towards better lives for our learners.
Eric brings a lifetime of experience and love for the Charlotte Community with him in his role as Team Leader of Relevant Academy. He has worked with learners labeled "at-risk" because he believes that title is undeserved. He has spent his life working to improve the lives of others, and has been recognized as such when his community elected him to the Charlotte School Board this year. His positivity is a golden ray of sunshine in the halls of Relevant Academy.
As Team Leader, Loretta brings her experience of working to bring services and support to those in need. She is protective of those she is responsible for, and fights hard for people who choose to fight for themselves. Her experience has given her the incredible skill of being able to calm tense situations before they begin, handle with ease those situations that would otherwise get out of hand, and is an expert at finding others to support learners in any way that she can't do herself.
Our health and physical education coach, Jeff, joined us at Relevant Academy as a substitute early on in the school year. His experience with the learners from the Charlotte Learning Center and his enthusiasm in supporting our learners made him quickly a part of our family and we did not let him go.
Our science coach, Julie, works entirely and in "after hours chats" to use her expirience working in a digital environment to help our learners be successful. While teaching at Charlotte High School, she developed her virtual expertise as an online teacher at Michigan Virtual High School. She loves science and helping learners discover more about the way the world works.
What else would be possible if you drastically improved your ability to conquer worry and stress, increased your level of self-confidence and communicated in manner so that you were more clearly understood? As our Relationship Coach, Bill Luxmore is dedicated to helping our learners and staff achieve this vision every day. His love for helping others started at a young age where he served as an assistant instructor in the martial arts. Bill uses this knowledge, years of corporate experience, over a decade of dedication as a Dale Carnegie Course Instructor and what he learns every day to help others reach their goals.
