Welcome To Akins Geek Force

My name is Coach Teresa Delgado and I am the sponsor for Geek Force. This club was started for many reasons but the primary reason was to provide a place for students to feel safe to express their geek passions. The culture today is different than it used to be when I was in high school, yet so much is still the same.

Kids walk the halls of school and they see cliques and no matter how hard they try they still get labeled as a certain kind of kid whether it be by teachers, administrators and even their peers. In today’s schools kids walk in many different shoes, the band kid can also be the star athlete. The cheerleader can also be the best at graphic design. This is great because it shows that kids have many different groups they belong to and sides to their personalities that they like to show. One of the main purposes of Geek Force is to give kids a place where they can come and express their love for Geek Culture with other like minded classmates.

Geek Force is more than just a place to talk about things like Star Wars and Harry Potter. It is a place for kids to build relationships, communicate and work on things like writing skills, public speaking and even interpersonal skills. Through the atmosphere this club provides there is room for kids to excel in all aspects of their education and transfer what we do in the club back into the classroom.

I am proud to bring my knowledge, love and passion for geek culture to Akins High School and can not wait to share that with the Geek Force students. I am also looking forward to learning about what geek passions our kids have and to share in that with them.

May the force be with you always!

Coach Delgado
