Scott G.- Parent, The Academy of 21st Century Learning



Scott G. talks about his daughter's experience with The Academy's 'Exploring Ecosystems' STEM program.


The Academy of 21st Century Learning is conveniently located in The Nut Tree Plaza in Vacaville. Your student will love it here—it’s inviting, challenging, safe, and fun! We have a mascot (Sophie the Shih Tzu) and a vibrant team of innovative and caring educators. Our educational games in the lobby even make parents want to get in on the learning, and where else can you write on the walls and tables, all in the name of education? So how does this all come together? As our model, The Academy of 21st Century Learning uses a framework comprised of four key categories that prepare students for the complex demands of learning in the 21st century.

  • Core Subjects in the 21st Century: All schools pay their respects to the core subjects –math, English, science, etc. –but we take our students to the next level by rigorously emphasizing critical thinking and analysis, creativity, and adaptability in all areas of their lives, whether it’s AP English, basketball, or Yearbook Club. 
  • Learning and Innovation Skills: What does Google teach a child? In today’s world, where there are many “right” answers, a search engine may be able to deliver the answer, but that does not mean it is actually capable of instilling the learning and innovation skills necessary for success. 
  • Information and Technology: Today’s textbook is a tablet. Although many teens claim to be technologically savvy, we realize the necessary tools for the 21st Century go well beyond being able to install your grandmother’s printer software. To this end, The Academy teaches advanced computing skills—we hold computer programming classes, and our tutors incorporate the use of advanced computational software in their instruction. 
  • Life and Career Skills: What happens when school ends and you’re faced with a real-life problem? Can you add it? Format it in MLA? Boil it in a beaker to find a solution? We prepare students life beyond the classroom by pushing them to their limits with challenging problems. The Academy is a place where it’s okay to be wrong. In fact, we embrace it, as no one has ever developed a strong character by solving easy math problems and being right all the time. 

Successful tomorrows start at The Academy!

My father, Mr. Naidu started as an ice cream vendor on the streets of Dixon, California, 30 years ago.  We all grew up selling ice cream on the streets of Dixon.  As soon as we got our driver’s license, our father gave us an ice cream truck to teach us responsibility and the value of a hard earned dollar.  Even till this day, we are known as THE ICE CREAM family in Dixon.  I remember throwing candies out from the trucks at the Dixon Mayfair Parade.  Good times!!!

Today our pride and joy is this wholesale novelty warehouse, which is operated by husband Ravi, my two son’s Shivam and Avineet and myself, Julz.  We are open seven days a week from 8am to 1pm, weather permitting.  Our hours change for the winter months.

Pazdel Chiropractic - Quality, Affordable Chiropractic Care

http://www.pazdelchiropractic.com

Dr. Pazdel has always been fascinated by how the human body produces responses to interventions from man. When he began his college career, he set out to study this phenomenon and to pursue a career in Genetic Engineering. While attending San Jose State University, Dr. Pazdel suffered a career altering injury to his low back.

Like so many individuals, Dr. Pazdel began what evolved into several months of traditional medical care and therapy with no relief. One of his family members suggested that he seek care from a Chiropractor in the area. Within a couple of visits to the Chiropractor, his low back pain had subsided significantly. Following the completion of his treatment plan, Dr. Pazdel was completely relieved of the pain.

Feeling energized by the experience, Dr. Pazdel began researching Chiropractic methods of heath treatment. Following undergraduate work at San Jose State University, he enrolled in Life Chiropractic College West and graduated in 1990. After becoming licensed by the state of California, Dr. Pazdel began practicing as a Doctor of Chiropractic in a very large practice in Yuba City, California. Following a transfer to Fairfield, California, he purchased the practice in 1995 where every day he continues to be energized by how the human body produces responses to interventions from man and how efficiently Chiropractic care works for the healing of so many disorders and injuries. Dr. Pazdel feels truly blessed to have a career that he loves and to touch the lives of so many patients in a positive

A Bit of History

 
Don Westhaver has been working on cars in Vallejo for over 35 years and was shop foreman for the Mercedes-Benz, Porsche dealer in Vallejo for 15 years.

Don also has a great deal of Porsche factory training and has the Audi/VW Quality Control award as well. When that dealership closed, Don decided to go out on his own.

Bryan-Braker Adapts To The Needs Of Families


 1850 W. Texas Street, Fairfield, CA 94533
(707) 425-4697 bryanbraker.com

Fairfield - Bryan-Braker adapts to the needs of the families they serve. While providing funeral, cemetery and cremation services to local families for over 50 years there have been some changes.

Bryan-Braker realizes the value of personalization and its value to the families we serve. Celebrating a life lived through gatherings that allow more family participation and stories about how we remember our loved one are much more common today. Families are encouraged to bring in photographs of different times in their lives, doing what they loved to do for hobbies, fun, traveling, or being with family and friends. The photographs help to create a fuller picture of the person’s life. The times that made us laugh and times that made a difference in other people’s lives. From customized memorial folders to video tributes, we want to create a memorable service for everyone. This personalization will have them talking, laughing, crying and sharing memories. Helping families gather these life mementos, photos, memories, and to plan the gathering or celebration of one’s life is what we do at Bryan-Braker.

To help deliver this service we have invested in state of the art audio/visual equipment and have well trained staff that can scan a box of photo memories and turn them into a 6 to 10 minute video production that is a beautiful mosaic of the person’s life. This production would be accompanied by music and is a beautiful tribute to a life lived. Additional copies of the production can be given to family and friends. Also, we can create slideshows that can be continually shown on wall mounted LCD screens throughout the lobby areas during the visitations.

By staying up to date on technology, we have yet another tool for us to use to meet the needs of today’s families. We know that you only get to plan the service once and whether the family chooses a small or a grand send off, Bryan-Braker can help with all the details with special care of your loved one, assisting with hotel rooms for out of town guests, to the reception planning after the service.

Another trend is, more and more families are choosing cremation and we have our own crematory at our cemetery Fairmont Memorial Park and this is comforting to families knowing their loved one never leaves our care.

I often hear people say ….“There is nothing new in funeral service.” But that is only true if you’re not open to new ideas. We will always strive to be the best funeral service provider by having the best funeral directors and the necessary technology to meet the needs of the families we are privileged to serve.

Solano County Bar Association Recognizes Young Attorney


Amber R. Hayes, an attorney with Hodson & Mullin in Vacaville, was recently named Young Attorney of the Year by the Solano County Bar Association. Hayes, a native of Napa, specializes in family law, but also sits on two state boards, one being the Family Law Executive Committee, which assists the state bar in working with the legislature to develop family law legislation. Ryan Chalk -- The Reporter

A short time after entering the legal profession as a second career, a local attorney has been recognized by her peers for her contributions to the legal community.

Amber R. Hayes was recently named the Solano County Bar Association’s Young Attorney of the Year during their annual installation dinner in January. The state bar recognizes a young lawyer as a member who is in his or her first five years of practice in California or who is age 36 or under.

Hayes, a Napa native, is an attorney with the Vacaville law firm Hodson & Mullin and specializes in family law.

It was her first career as a juvenile probation officer in Napa County that helped steer her in the direction of becoming a lawyer. It was in Napa County that she was assigned to the juvenile probation office’s court unit.

“I knew I wanted to go to law school when I became a probation officer,” Hayes said.

Already holding a degree in psychology from University of California, Santa Cruz, Hayes decided to enroll at Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minn., where the draw was to be involved with legislative work.

However, upon graduation, Hayes eventually followed a path to family law, an area of law that is often challenging.

“I enjoy the complexity. I enjoy that it really requires a higher level of analysis than some fields require,” Hayes said.

However, Hayes still gets involved with the legislative side of things, as she sits on two state Bar Association boards, notably the Family Law Section and its Executive Committee (FLEXCOM), which, among its duties are assisting the State Bar in working with the legislature to develop family law legislation.

According to Hayes, receiving the Solano County Bar Association recognition, came as a surprise.

“It was a shock, honestly. I’m still a little floored,” she said.

However, Hayes is quick to point out the great work being done by other young attorneys in the area.

“A young attorney brings a fresh perspective to a practice,” she said.

Bernadette Curry, president of the Solano County Bar Association, remembers the first time she met Hayes and quickly became impressed with her work with the California Young Lawyers Association in seeking to facilitate mentoring opportunities for other young attorneys.

“She’s excited and is really trying to create opportunities for young attorneys to grow,” Curry said.

“When you have that type of energy you want to recognize it,” she added.

The Solano County Bar Association also recognizes a law firm of the year and attorney of the year.
Julie Hilt, executive director, said that Young Attorney of the Year is someone who goes above and beyond to raise the bar on standards for the legal profession.

“I’ve always been impressed with her enthusiasm,” Hilt said.

“She gets involved to make a difference,” she added.
