Faculty Spotlight - Dr. Anita White
We had the chance to catch up with Dr. Anita White, PROMISE Program Director and Science faculty member at IMSA. As the director of the PROMISE program, Dr. White oversees all programs associated with PROMISE. This includes the Leading Students to Success program, which is offered to seventh and eighth graders. Another component of the program includes the Early Involvement program being offered to ninth graders. Both of these programs meet on Saturdays beginning in October and concluding in January. In addition, Dr. White oversees the SEAMS program, which is the third major program associated with PROMISE. SEAMS is a program offered to rising high school freshmen. This program meets for 10 days over the summer and is a residential program. All of the components of the PROMISE program aim to offer activities and instruction in math and science. English and an SAT prep course has been added to the SEAMS program to assist prospective students applying to IMSA. These programs also focus on developing leadership skills in the students they serve. The other hat Dr. White wears includes her role as a science faculty member at IMSA. Dr. White is currently in her 12 th year at IMSA after coming to IMSA in 2008. Primarily, Dr. White teaches Organic Chemistry. Orgo 1 in the Fall and Orgo 2 in the Spring. Check out her interview.
