You have challenged, assisted, and directed me in this journey. I look forward to leading our teachers.
I believe that ALL children can and should have the same rights to learn. I believe that Educators hold the obligation to share the most of what they know in the most creative and exploratory way possible.Christopher-Aaron Deanes 2012
