Jo Ann truly goes the extra mile to facilitate learning through many modalities specific to each student. She spends hours of her own time preparing materials and meeting the needs of students in other classes as well.

Mrs. Crockett is an outstanding kindergarten teacher, and has made an incredible impact in the life of our son, James. He believes in himself now, and we couldn't be more grateful.

Since the beginning of the year, Ms. Findlay has been in contact and working with us to do what she can to help our (autistic) son...I already think teachers are heroes, but Ms. Findlay is a SUPERHERO!

Mrs. Bruner is a kind and compassionate person. Earlier this month when I was home sick with the flu, Cathy and another teacher brought dinner to my home. This is the type of person Mrs. Bruner is every day. She is just outstanding!

Nobody has cared about me more than Rocky Lambourne. I’m talking about a guy who could have let me fall through the cracks 22 years ago, but he didn’t.
