About Sports Leadership Arts Management North Charter

Welcome to SLAM! North
It is with great honor that I welcome you to Sports Leadership and Management in North Miami Beach. The acronym SLAM is one that is dear to my heart. I started my path to becoming an administrator by serving as a teacher and the athletic director of Mater Academy Middle/High Charter School in Hialeah Gardens for 12 years. As part of the faculty and school development team since it's inaugural year, I was able to assist and observe in the progression from 300 to almost 3000 students. It was at Mater Academy where my core values were instilled:

  • Virtue
  • Character
  • Educational Excellence
  • Hard Work
  • Determination
  • Diversity

In 2013 I launched another Mater Academy campus as an administrator the school evolved from 700 students to 1300 students in just three years. In the summer of 2016, I was asked to take part in opening SLAM! North, a school which has a unique way of infusing academic success with athletics.
At SLAM! North, each student has the option to select an academy that they are interested in: Sports Medicine, Digital Television & Sports Media Production, Sports Marketing, and Entertainment & Management. Slams the unique approach to educating our students infuse sports into the lessons.

The SLAMified lesson broadens a students understanding of the material and creates a connection to the subject matter. SLAMs extensive sports and extracurricular activities provide physical and social avenues to match a wide range of student interests. Combining those efforts, we expect our students to achieve a rewarding educational experience and continue their studies beyond SLAM! North. The focus of our experience is to have our students ask When and where do I want to go to college?
