“I believe that a school should be a place that students look forward to attending and where families and community members are valued and connected,” states Megan. “Students should be respected, cared for, and given opportunities to grow. If we focus on effort and improvement, our students’ knowledge will grow and they will find success.” "Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way." - George Evans
