Michelle Archie is very much liked and admired by teachers, students and parents across the Harrisburg City School District. She has an outstanding reputation for having a great relationship and rapport with not only the students of the district but also their parents, colleagues and the community members as well. Mrs. Archie as the children call her, goes above and beyond her required duties as a Harrisburg School District administrator. She does this because she cares deeply about our students. Her reputation is also one of integrity and fairness. For me, this is personal. Mrs. Archie has had a HUGE impact in the lives of not one, not two, but THREE of my children. All of this was while she worked at what is now called Rowland Academy. My oldest son is 20 years old and he has now graduated high school and is in college. While my son attended Rowland, he wasn't perfect. There were several occasions I had to come and talk WITH Mrs. Archie. She didn't talk TO me, but WITH me. We would come up with strategies together. That is when the relationship and the bond was created with not only me but my son as well. He is now a two time state basketball champion and a college sophomore. Fast forward a few years later and now my daughter is at Rowland. My daughter was new to the city and had a really hard time transitioning from a suburban area to a city area. When my daughter got herself into a situation at school, Mrs. Archie took my daughter under her wing, talked with her constantly about self-esteem and having confidence. My daughter is now a Junior with distinguished honors at Sci-Tech Academy. Here we go again with my youngest son. My son was hit by a car and suffered a severe concussion. Changed him a lot. His behaviors begin to change and he began to get in trouble in school. Mrs. Archie made sure that he had a 504 plan created, she guided me on what to do at home with him, she followed up with me regarding him. He is now a Freshman at Dauphin County Tech. I said all that to say this. It takes a village. Mrs. Archie has been fair, consistent and has made a huge impact on the lives of my children. I cannot allow the district to accuse her of being immoral nor can I allow the district to question her morals. OUR community NEEDS Mrs. Archie in these schools. What she is being accused of, is it worth losing a great member of YOUR team who has been there for OUR children for 25 years?
