Nick Williams is famous for going to great lengths to engage students in the topics he teaches, in particular for the science-themed rap songs he records and posts on his school website. As an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) teacher, Williams mentors 30 students, including some who struggle due to social, emotional or extreme home situations. Last year, most of his AVID students applied and were accepted to college.
