Great teachers - creative, intelligent, fun and compelling. I enjoy listening to the fun anecdotes my daughter tells us about her days at school. The teachers go out of their way to help students succeed in whatever goals they set for themselves. I am amazed on a daily basis how much time and effort they give to the kids in their care.
