Nickelette Law, Forensics
Ms. Nicki began working with children in 2002 as a volunteer for the AmeriCorps program and quickly learned the importance of humility in service.  Her involvement within the Reading Recovery, after school, and summer camp programs heightened her interest in literacy and highlighted the importance of reading across the curriculum and beyond. After obtaining a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Language Arts and Integrated Science, she taught at the elementary level for eight years and the middle school level for two years.  She is looking forward to growing a forensics team and coaching students in public discourse. Ms. Nicki is eager to witness students gaining confidence and having pride in their own voices.
Angela Newsom, Roots to Fruits
Ms. Angela is a trained chef that is passionate about teaching the next generation how to eat and live healthily, grow and preserve food, and care for the Earth. After losing her father in 2002 to a diet-related illness, Angela began a healing journey to reverse her own illnesses through diet and lifestyle changes. She believes that access to knowledge, resources, and healthy food is crucial to creating a thriving community and is committed to being an advocate for Detroit children and families. Angela has been coordinating the school's Farm to School program for five years and is thrilled to have a weekly class this year to explore cooking, nutrition, and gardening in more depth with Boggs students.
