I am honored to be recruited by UPI to research and develop curriculum that will have a positive impact on students’ ability to become successful contributors to their families, community, nation, and world. Those institutions and organizations that are the caretakers of children must seriously comprehend what students need to know that may not be taught in their traditional educational setting. True success for urban students may be in the balance between traditional education and a comprehensive life skills curriculum, a service UPI can deliver and one that is not offered in many schools. UPI is on the move! I am with UPI!”
