FBI Partnership with DNHS Continues to Flourish

The Albuquerque Federal Bureau of Investigation has partnered with Del Norte HS for over seven years.

ABQ FBI Community Outreach Specialist Tammy Peter and Del Norte HS Principal Jo Sloan talk about partnership activities in 2012 during a recent classroom speaking engagement in Del Norte's forensic science classes.

The FBI continues to provide science enhancement, the latest in technology,  career awareness and job skill support to Del Norte HS students through field trips and classroom presentations.  Recently, students in Cheryl Mattison and Christine Beverly's Forensic Science classes were treated to presentations from FBI agents on a variety of  topics.  Students experienced hands on demonstrations of the latest crime-solving technology and heard about the job skills necessary to apply to the FBI in the 21st century.  Several agents discussed their areas of expertise and the career pathways that enabled them to work with the FBI.  Included in the presentation were an undercover agent and a new agent with a background in journalism.  Students were reminded of the importance of having a clean record if they are to work in law enforcement.

The FBI has hosted students for field trips over the duration of the partnership and each experience has been unique.  The partnership has been very successful thanks to the creativity and good communication between DNHS teachers and Tammy Peter, the FBI Community Outreach Specialist who has championed and facilitated this partnership and also one with Valle Vista ES, which focuses on literacy.  The ABQ FBI continues to be a great community partner and for 2012 the partnership will be broadened to accommodate classroom speaking requests from other interested public schools.
