The teachers and staff work as a team to make this a great school."

"I wanted to be a teacher because I have always enjoyed working with children. Children always seem drawn to me, whether at school, in the store, or even at functions where I am unfamiliar with the children. I like this school because I like the children and the families. I have built relationships with families and children and have gotten to know them through the ups and downs in their lives. We have "grown up" here together, as I have seen many students throughout their entire school years here."
