Life as the GeoTech Treasurer

by Gabriela Jaimes, 11th Grade (Treasurer 21/22)

I enjoy being involved in the Geotech Academy, which is why I am the treasurer and head of the fundraising committee for the academy. As treasurer of the academy there are duties I am responsible for completing. For example, I count the money we raise after every fundraiser has ended and deposit that money to our account in the finance office. The fundraising committee is responsible for coming up with ideas on how to raise money for the academy. The money we raise goes towards projects, field trips and anything related to the academy.

Academy Mission

The GeoTech Academy is a small learning community funded through the California Department of Education, California Partnership Academies. Our mission is to serve students in the San Diego Unified School District who are interested in the field of engineering and design that focuses on clean technologies and sustainable building designs.  Through mentorships, internships, guest speakers, and hands-on projects, GeoTech students are prepared to graduate ready for college, post-secondary training and careers with an understanding of engineering fields.  The GeoTech Academy provides a close family-like atmosphere where students are provided with the necessary skills to set and achieve goals that will assist them in the future.
