Rockford Families, please SHARE to spread awareness🫶🏽!

My name is Aliya Alcindor and Im a college student from Mercer University in Georgia!

This summer, I get to help families in Illinois with in-home educational resources that get kids excited about learning, save time with schoolwork, and prepare students for life after high school. This is my 1st summer with Southwestern Advantage, and I’ve checked in with the county Sheriff’s office, local police department, and introduced myself to the township.

We partner with companies such as National Geographic, Princeton Review, McGraw Hill, and cover ABCs to SAT/ACTs! The resources are…

1. A study system that makes school easier, helps children AND parents save time on doing schoolwork in math and other subjects, writing papers 📝 completing projects ✂️ and studying for tests

2. Early Learning System - Fun, exploratory educational books 📚 & apps 📲 for babies through elementary school age children to give them a head start

3. College Entrance Advantage - An online program that helps students excel in AP classes, improve their ACT/SAT scores, and qualify them for scholarships 🎓

4. LEAD - A leadership development program for high school students

5. Family Bible Library - A book series that teaches strong values & life principles for kids of all ages

I am super excited to serve Rockford IL. I AM NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY SCHOOL DISTRICT, this is just my summer internship.

If you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment 📆 feel free to send me a direct message ➡️

If you see me driving around in my Red Chevy Cruze with Georgia plates, give me a wave!

See ya on the front porch✌🏽

Meet Rico, River and the 3 chicks. They came to visit Ellis today to meet all our students and even spent some time in Mr. Lamm’s office to show him a thing or two .😜 Rico gave birth to River just 3 days ago. We were all in love! ❤️

Ellis could not be luckier to have been blessed with our Instructional coach, Jessica Berg, who received an award from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) 2023 Those Who Excel program.

In Jessica’s short time at Ellis she recognized a problem and pioneered her way in finding and implementing a solution. She has tirelessly researched, trained, helped create and implemented a successful reading curriculum backed by the Science of Reading. The students and teachers love the new curriculum and are excited to be apart of these changes and even more importantly, Ellis is seeing some significant improvement in our scores.

I believe it is safe to say that a majority of people involved in rolling out our Science of Reading curriculum feel more confident in reading as a direct result of Jessica’s blood, sweat and tears!

Congratulations, Jessica Berg! Thank you for all that you do for students and staff. You are a bright spot in the RPS 205 district!


Congratulations to our March Students of the Month!
