Much of Dr. Rosales’ work has been in promoting a college going culture in the school districts of Cameron and Willacy County as well as finding ways to remove barriers that prevent Latino students from receiving a post-secondary credential.
Most recently, the program he directed, the Mathematics and Science Academy, was nationally recognized by Excelencía in Education as a program that provides academic opportunities in higher education for Latino students.

Mrs. Smith comes to us from Lansing Eastern High School where she was department chair. Ms. Smith also has a counseling degree and will be teaching College prep math. Mrs. Smith holds degrees from Hillsdale College and Spring Arbor University. For Mrs. Smith, STEM means a focus on curriculum areas that incorporate more projects into the learning. It will offer opportunities for students to explore these areas and see if they would like to have further experiences in these areas.
This is Mr. Boeve’s eighth year as an instructor of high school-aged students. He has taught at various places which include Lowell Area Schools, Countryside Academy in Benton Harbor, Marshall Academy, and this is his second year at The Early College. He holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan with majors in Social Studies and History and is currently 3 credits short of earning his M.A. in Instruction and Curriculum from Grand Valley State University. He loves teaching social studies because of all the real world applications. "Social Studies is a subject that is alive because history, political decisions, and current events are being made every day. I love having students make those real world connections in order to see that social studies really is worth studying and does have application to their lives."
