Ms. Eseosa Orhuozee is an SPS Attendance Intervention & Success Coordinator, assigned to Garfield. This is a relatively new role, created by the district to help 9th graders who may need a little extra support. She describes her role as a “Care Coordinator”, cultivating a safe space for students to feel seen, heard, and valued. She hears students’ stories, facilitates meetings between students and teachers, and helps identify and eliminate barriers to academic success. Ms. Eseosa is passionate about building and cultivating authentic relationships with students, so that she may elevate their voices and better advocate for their academic needs.
Ms. Eseosa was born and raised in Los Angeles, although she calls Seattle home now. In her spare time, she likes to go for a run, hang with friends, or binge watch a good series on Netflix. At any given moment, you are likely to find Ms. Eseosa listening to Nipsey Hussle; he is her favorite person ever (May his gorgeous soul rest in eternal Peace & Power)! These days, she finds herself prioritizing self-care more, in an effort to stay grounded; this looks like an afternoon respiratory steam, or a quick face mask, anything that uplifts her frequency!
Fun fact: When Ms. Eseosa was in 9th grade, she was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” by her peers.
Ms. Eseosa advises students to, “Never forget how important your voice is. Your voice is our future. Whenever you can, use your voice to advocate for what you need and tell your story, because YOU matter! Be kind to yourself, and remember you are never alone. I’m here if you should ever find yourself needing support, please don’t ever hesitate to reach out.”
