For this week’s Albert teacher spotlight, we chatted with Patrick Skuba. Patrick teaches AP Language and Composition at Liberty High School in Bakersfield, California. It is part of the Kern High School District, a huge district made up of 18 high schools and over 35,000 students. Working within such a huge district means that it can be difficult to get administrative approval for new classroom resources. Patrick tried a couple times over the past few years to implement Albert in his classroom, but because of budget constraints, was unsuccessful.
Lucky, he learned about Albert’s pilot license program where teachers are able to try Albert with unlimited access at the schoolwide level for one month. With the pilot, you can try out as many classes as you’d like, including our Common Core-aligned Differentiated Foundations (focusing on foundational grammar, reading and math skills) and our NGSS science courses (offered as Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth and Space Science).
