It provides an amazing back drop to teach morals and values as her students learn to navigate in a school setting. The families are amazingly kind and supportive, which makes for a wonderful teaching/learning environment. Parents and teachers work hand-in-hand to give each student an individualized education. The class sizes allow the teachers to personalize each student’s education to best meet his/her educational needs. She feels like teaching is what she was born to do.
