“Our teachers are the key to creating a welcoming community for students. I am proud of how my team routinely goes above and beyond for all their families. They are thoughtful, kind, collaborative and proactive in working with individual families. In addition to their students, they are highly supportive of new staff members. The school has a strong culture of being positive and supportive of all in the school community.
