An interview with Amanda Rueles (MCB, Biochemistry Minor 2021), Fall 2019 Danny Brower Scholarship winner.  Amanda Ruelas - Fall 2019 Danny Brower Scholarship Winner By: Michele Vaughan   Publish Date: Dec 11, 2019   "I find it really interesting to learn about how cells work and how they make life." How did you feel when you found out you won the Danny Brower scholarship? I was so excited and so happy that I was able to get an MCB scholarship; it's an honor! Paying for college is really hard and it's going to be such a big help and stress reliever. I also have a Wildcat Excellence Award and I have worked in a lab since my freshmen year to help pay for college.  Tell me about working in Dr. Anderson's lab. I went to Sunnyside High School in Tucson and was enrolled in the BIOTECH Project both my junior and senior years. I was also in the KEYS Research Internship Program and through the BIOTECH Project and KEYS, I met Dr. Nadja Anderson. I kept crossing paths with her through these programs! The summer before my freshmen year, I worked the KEYS program and after that program Dr. Anderson asked me to work in her lab, so I started working in her lab my freshmen year and I worked in her lab for two years. What did you do in Dr. Anderson's lab? I prepped the lab experiments that went out to the high schools for the BIOTECH Project. I had to make sure all the reagents were right and everything they needed to do the experiment was included. I also helped with some MCB outreach events. I liked seeing how excited the younger kids were about science. I loved hearing them say "I love science!"  Then you were accepted into The Undergraduate Biology Research Program (UBRP) - tell me about that. When I first applied to UBRP, I didn't get accepted, and then I got the Margaret Bilson Research Fellowship Award and was able to be a part of UBRP. UBRP assigned me to Dr. Curtis Thorne's lab and I worked there all summer. Dr. Thorne's lab is a cancer research lab and he does colorectal cancer research. My project focuses on using molecular cloning to analyze cellular division. A common hallmark of cancer is excessive cell division. Proteins that are involved in cell communication and signaling, one class being called a kinases, can often tell cells to divide when they really should not or vice versa. I am using the process of molecular cloning and CRISPR/CAS9 to insert parts of genes that encode for kinases whose inferred normal function is to suppress cellular division. With the help of CRISPR/CAS9 (a protein complex that can remove, add or alter sections of DNA), I am going to knockdown kinases in normal human colonic epithelial cells to analyze if not having this kinase expressed induces, suppresses, or has no effect on cellular division.  Why did you choose The University of Arizona? I had a lot of connections and had credits from when I was in the BIOTECH Project. I went to Meet MCB and saw there was a lot of research going on at the University of Arizona and I knew the university would give me a lot of opportunities in science. Why did you choose MCB as your major? Since I was in the BIOTECH Project at Sunnyside High School and had dual enrollment with MCB at the university, I wanted to continue with MCB. I really like studying cells and I wanted to see where MCB would take me. After I took more MCB courses, it solidified my decision. It's really cool to learn about cells. Cells look out for me and I don’t even have to ask them to; it just happens and I find it really interesting to learn about how cells work and how they make life! What has been your best experience at UA? So far my best experience has been working with Dr. Anderson in the BIOTECH Project because I got a lot of exposure to outreach to the community about science. I learned how important it is to communicate science and engage with a younger generation so they can enjoy science and not be scared of it. What MCB classes have you like most and why? Cancer Biology with Dr. Justina McEvoy has been the best class I've ever taken! I find myself doing more research outside of class because it's so interesting. What skill have you learned that you think will be most useful when you graduate? I learned a lot about how to look at different points of view and I think that is really useful. I think looking at different sides of things to get the whole picture instead of cherry picking information that fit my point of view is important and I think this skill will be useful in the future by helping me make decisions. In the SORT (STEM Outreach and Recruitment Team) class taught by Dr. Lisa Rezende, we read a book about pseudo-science. Every week we would have a conversation in class about different points of view and where we get information to form our point of view. I learned that the average person won’t read a scientific journal publication and I learned how and where people get information to make decisions. What are your plans post-graduation? I'm not entirely certain yet! I may enter the workforce to gain experience in another kind of research so I have some exposure outside of cancer research to see what kind of research I would be interested in as a career. I hope one day to get a PhD and I want to get experience outside of cancer research so I can decide what to focus on for my PhD. What are your hobbies and interests outside school? I'm really into fashion. I go to thrift stores and buy clothes and redesign and upcycle the clothes. My favorite one I upcycled was a really long dress that looked like a grandma dress and I made it into a cute summer skirt and top. I love the balance of this creative work with my love of science!   Article on UofA website:  https://bit.ly/2PSCtku

Edgardo Aguilar is the 2019 Arizona Poetry Out Loud champion. (Photo: Arizona Commission on the Arts)   State Poetry Champ to Attend UA in Fall By: Alexis Blue, University Communications Aug. 20, 2019 As the 2019 Arizona Poetry Out Loud champion, Edgardo Aguilar competed on the national stage in Washington, D.C. Poetry Out Loud challenges high school students to memorize and recite their favorite poems. Edgardo Aguilar with U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona. Aguilar had the opportunity to meet Sinema and Sen. Martha McSally while in Washington, D.C. (Photo courtesy of Aguilar)   Before Edgardo Aguilar knew about the likes of William Yeats and Maya Angelou, he fell in love with the poetry of musical artists such as Tupac, Bob Dylan and Wu-Tang Clan. Now, as he pens his own poetry, he draws inspiration from a diverse group of musicians and poets, from Johnny Cash to Pink Floyd and The Notorious B.I.G. to William Shakespeare. "My interest in poetry really stems from hip-hop," said 18-year-old Aguilar. "I've always been very fond of hip-hop music and big lyricists, like Nas or Rakim – people that know how to put a spin on words. They're poets in their own way; the only difference is they write a beat on top of it." Aguilar is Arizona's 2019 Poetry Out Loud champion, while led to him representing the state at the national finals of the poetry recitation competition in Washington, D.C., last spring. This fall, he will enroll as a freshman at the University of Arizona, which is home to one of the nation's most extensive collections of contemporary poetry. Aguilar was a senior at Desert View High School in Tucson when he first learned about Poetry Out Loud, a competition through the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Foundation and state arts agencies that challenges high school students to memorize and recite their favorite poems. Participants are judged on memorization, stage presence, articulation and style, among other things. Aguilar recited two poems for his schoolwide competition: "It Would be Nice if With the New Year," by Chicano-American poet Jimmy Santiago Baca; and "Nude Descending a Staircase," by American poet X. J. Kennedy. Aguilar took first place and advanced to the regional competition, held at the UA Poetry Center. Although Aguilar lives near campus with his father, regionals marked his first visit to the award-winning UA Poetry Center – a place he imagines he'll return to as a student. "I know if I need a spot to get my mind straight and get away from it all, it will probably be there," he said. Aguilar placed second in regionals, where the first three finishers earned a spot in the state competition in Phoenix. There, he added a third poem to his repertoire – "A Song: Lying is an Occupation," by 18th-century Irish poet Laetitia Pilkington. Aguilar beat out eight competitors to become the 2019 Arizona Poetry Out Loud champion and was invited to compete in the national finals in Washington, D.C. His journey to the capital, which he made with his stepfather and Advanced Placement English teacher, was not without hiccups. Aguilar's bag didn't make it onto his connecting flight and arrived several hours after Aguilar did. And shortly before he took the stage to recite his first poem, he was hit with a vertigo spell; he's dealt with the periodic dizziness episodes for a few years now.   However, the good far outweighed any bad, and even though Aguilar was eliminated after the first of three rounds for memorization errors, the experience – which also included a tour of the U.S. Capitol and meeting Arizona Sens. Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema – is one he'll never forget. "The best part of the competition was after the competition," he recalled. "That night, after the final round, we had an after-party, and after the after-party we went down to the basement of the hotel and we had our own poetry slam. All the competitors who were able to make it got into a circle and we all just kind of vibed. The energy from that was crazy. Midnight came around and we had to leave, but it didn’t end there. We went out into the hallway nearby and kept doing what we were doing until 5 o'clock in the morning." Aguilar says that, to him, poetry is a way to make sense of chaos in the world. And as someone who was very shy as a child, it's also helped give him a voice. "I needed to get involved in something to express myself in other ways, because it's hard for me to express myself just speaking," he said. "With poetry, you can express yourself freely, no judgment, and you can really reminisce and self-reflect." Aguliar said that as a child he didn't expect to go to college, thinking he'd become a plumber like his father. The oldest of four siblings, he would be the first in his immediate family to earn a college degree. Now, he looks forward to starting at the UA, and while he's not yet chosen a major, he's eager to enroll in creative writing and poetry classes when he can. In the meantime, he plans to continue writing poetry in his free time. "I'm focusing on my general education now, and that will give me time to develop my tone and my style for my writing," he said. "It's really about finding myself."
Our Vision: Every child... College, Career and Community Ready. Our Mission: Our mission is to develop students with a strong sense of identity, purpose and agency, so that they leave our system as effective learners who act with purpose to achieve the conditions they desire in their own and others’ lives. Since the release of the 1983 report “A Nation at Risk” our public school systems have been challenged with the task of improving public perception regarding how we prepare students for the future. This issue of a quality of education was compounded with the accountability requirements under the No Child Left Behind of 2001, which focused primarily on one assessment.  This narrow focus on one metric as the definitive measure of school quality misrepresents the complexity of educating students and diminishes the great work of educators across this nation who make a difference in the lives of students every day, in every classroom. And though aggregate performance is a key variable for measuring success, it simply fails to tell a bigger picture of what our students have and will be able to do in the future.  For this reason we felt it critical to recast our PROFILE OF A GRADUATE within a broader narrative of student success. This new framework provides an unparalleled level of clarity that aligns our mission, vision, and the work.  This new iteration of our graduate profile picks up where our Strategic Plan left off in 2015 and drives the work forward through five competencies, key to each student’s journey towards graduation: 1). Knowledge for Learning, 2). Knowledge for Impact, 3). Creative Confidence, 4). Critical Consciousness, and 5). Self and Systems Awareness.  In addition to college and career readiness, Community Ready was added to this iteration of the work thanks to feedback we received from community members, as well as industry and higher education professionals who expressed certain intangibles that Sunnyside students brought to their organizations. Attributing to our students traits like, “community-minded”, “a sense of social justice”, “respectfulness” we felt strongly that Community Ready also provided us with a framework to bridge the gap between knowledge and agency. This framework allows our District to capture the summative experiences that mark each child’s learning journey so that personalizing the classroom is less about technology, and more about each student’s ecology.  Thank you for being a part of our journey.      COMPETENCY #1: KNOWLEDGE FOR LEARNING Our students are knowledge creators. We look to them to not only master the content, but also to transfer knowledge across disciplines: From science to the humanities, from mathematics to the social sciences—Sunnyside students are deep thinkers and well-rounded learners with a strong sense of academic identity.  We trust our students as knowledge co-creators who share their expertise with peers and teachers as part of an intentional process of collaboration. Sunnyside students understand that learning is a social and shared responsibility. By listening respectfully, students value learning from one another as they begin to develop transferable skills like responding positively and constructively, which are important skills to employers as they are assembling their teams.   COMPETENCY #2: KNOWLEDGE FOR IMPACT When Hurricane Harvey crippled the Texas coast in 2018, Sunnyside students in our JTED Construction program rolled up their sleeves, gave up their spring break, and traveled across the country to rebuild homes. When faced with the opportunity to speak at the state capitol demanding an increase in teacher pay, one Sunnyside student took to the microphone, took a deep breath and pumped up a crowd of tens of thousands.    Our students are engaged participants in their future, not merely bystanders. Equipped with deep knowledge of history and a sense of what is fair, our students are adept at using social media and student organizations to drive change. Sunnyside students are aware of community issues and possess real-world knowledge gained from internships and other experiences that put global issues into a local context.   COMPETENCY #3: CREATIVE CONFIDENCE All students are creative, and it’s our responsibility to nurture that creativity. Borrowing from the work of Tom and David Kelley (IDEO, Stanford d.School) we define creative confidence as the natural human ability to come up with great ideas and the courage to act on those ideas.  Sunnyside students take part in human-centric experiences that use empathy, systems thinking, and design thinking to unlock their creativity. Through building prototypes, using causal loops, challenging assumptions, and acknowledging that all ideas are worthy, our students learn how to take risks. More importantly, creative confidence relies on human collaboration, which is embodied in the performing arts. Sunnyside's tradition of excellence in the fine arts provides a first point of entry for students into a world of creativity that gives them opportunities to gain confidence and succeed.    COMPETENCY #4: CRITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS Workplaces, schools and colleges, and other social environments are defined by internal cultures and norms that are not always visible from the outside. Some environments are built to nurture and empower, while other systems have internal cultures that hinder upward mobility. This is why we give students the tools to identify systems that perpetuate inequality so they’re prepared to take action.  In collaboration with League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson and the YWCA Southern Arizona we host workshops that help high school students learn about running for office while deconstructing issues such as racism, discrimination, and LGBTQ rights. Fostering critical consciousness through debate empowers our students to keep up with important issues and to demand a seat at the table.    COMPETENCY #5: SELF AND SOCIAL AWARENESS Students who are self-aware have strong intrapersonal skills such as self-regulation, which develops in the early years and aids in problem solving and supports volitional behavior. Social awareness (or social intelligence) is part of an important skill set that, later in life, is what sets a transformational leader apart from an everyday boss. This profile of a graduate takes into account our students’ social and emotional development and values traits such as assertiveness, conflict resolution, positive self-talk (to name a few)—as important indicators—of self- and social awareness, which is key to our students’ ability to thrive after high school.   NEXT STEPS 1. Create a graphic representation of the Graduate Profile 2. Introduce the Graduate Profile at the 2018 Administrative Summit 3. Develop indicators for each of the Graduate Profile competency areas 4. Establish a continuum or rubrics by grade band for each indicator that will be used to support internal accountability metrics with the desired outcome of establishing our own school label system    
TEENAGE PARENT PROGRAM SUNNYSIDE INFANT CENTER Sunnyside High School 1725 E. Bilby Road Tucson, Arizona 85706 520-545-5355 Philosophy The Sunnyside Infant Center is set up for the convenience of parenting students enrolled in the Sunnyside Unified School District. We believe that an important function of the center is to provide seNices, support, and quality care for the infants of teen parents while they attend school. We strive to establish an atmosphere in which infants are safe to explore their environment, and provide daily experiences in all areas of development, including gross motor, fine motor, sensory, social, emotional and intellectual development. We use the Arizona Infant Toddler Developmental Guidelines as a guide for lesson planning. Hours of Operation The Sunnyside Infant Center is open from 6:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday. We are open each day that school is in session. As a parent, you have access to the center any time it is open. The center does not provide transportation. Administration The Sunnyside Infant Center is regulated by the Arizona Department of Health Services and is a child care center within the Teenage Parent Program in the Sunnyside Unified School District #12, located on the campus of Sunnyside High School. The center is covered by liability insurance as required by the Arizona Department of Health Services. Inspection reports are located on site and available upon request. Enrollment Information Eligibility - Infants 2 weeks to one year of age are eligible for enrollment. If the infant is walking when he/she turns 1 year old, their last day of enrollment in the center will be the Friday of that week. If the infant is not yet walking when they turn 1 year old, they will remain enrolled until they are "steady on their feet." This means they can take several steps without falling down or holding onto anything, and/or can stand unassisted from a sitting position. However, if the one-year-old presents a safety issue for the younger infants, your child's enrollment will need to be evaluated. Infants of mothers and fathers in the TAPP program are eligible for enrollment as well as district staff, faculty, and the local community, space providing. DES is accepted. The Sunnyside Infant Center does not take drop-ins. The special needs of any infant will be evaluated on a case by case basis.  Fees - $39.00 per full day (6 hours or more) and $28.00 per part day (less than 6 hours). There is a non-refundable $30.00 fee at the time of registration.

Desert View is fully accredited through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It is a comprehensive high school that offers a plethora of rigorous and challenging courses. The foundation of its success is based in its Freshman Academy. This school within a school serves as a foundational environment which prepares incoming 9th graders for their tenure as high school students. Once students advanced into the upper grade levels they are invited to join one of three College and Career Academies. Each academy focuses on a career pathway where students can earn college credit, industry certifications and take part in work experiences and internships. This combination of core and elective classes has evolved Desert View into a culture of college and career readiness. Additionally, the use of AVID instructional strategies and ample enrollment in Honors and Advanced Placement courses has propelled graduation rates and record amounts of scholarship offerings. This focus on learning and real world experiences has prepared our students for life after Desert View.

School Activities

Physical activities are a common form of recreation and a source of well-being, and are key to improving physical fitness and physical and mental health. Community activities give students the opportunity to better know themselves, to open up to others and to gain a better sense of belonging to their community. Community activities encourage students to play an active role in society and become responsible citizens and inspirational role models.
